Iowa G Jordan Bohannon returning for sixth season

Jordan Bohannon has decided to return to the Iowa Hawkeyes for a sixth season of college basketball, he revealed Monday.

Bohannon, who already holds the program record with 143 games played, opted into an extra year of eligibility offered by the NCAA as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bohannon told the Des Moines Register that he was swayed by coach Fran McCaffery’s pitch to let him play shooting guard after years of running the point for the Hawkeyes, as well as the prospect of playing in front of crowds of fans again.

“Excited for a season with FANS!” Bohannon added on social media. “Missed y’all. This past season just never felt right.”

Bohannon is also Iowa’s all-time leader in assists (639) and 3-pointers made (364). It’s likely Iowa will need him to play a new role on offense with Wooden Award winner Luka Garza graduating and moving on to professional ball.

Bohannon played 10 games (six starts) in 2019-20 before undergoing season-ending hip surgery. He was given a medical redshirt that allowed him to play in 2020-21, when he appeared in 31 games (30 starts) for Iowa and averaged 10.6 points and 4.4 assists.

Bohannon will turn 24 before next season begins.
