Sophomore defensive backs Torrey Campbell and Kevin Buford have both left the Iowa football program, the UI announced in a release Tuesday afternoon.

According to the release, Campbell will remain at Iowa as a full-time member of the track and field program after competing in both football and track for two years. Buford, on the other hand, is expected to transfer and play football elsewhere.

After redshirting in 2011, Campbell saw action in one game last season — Iowa’s 32-31 loss to Central Michigan on Sept. 22 — and never really climbed up the Hawkeyes’ 2-deep. Buford played in nine games as a true freshman in 2012 and was one of seven true freshmen to see playing time for Iowa last year. He recorded five tackles, two of which (including his lone solo tackle) came in Iowa’s 24-21 loss to Indiana on Nov. 3. Buford mostly saw the field when Iowa lined up in its dime package during games.
