Brinson wants to move closer to Florida
Brinson, a highly touted recruit from St. Petersburg, Fla., redshirted in 2008 and was limited to just one carry last season because of a foot injury. He would have been one of four sophomore backs on Iowa's roster in 2010.
The Hawkeyes will also return Jewel Hampton, who rushed for seven TDs in 2008 but redshirted last season because of a knee injury.
