More than 700 talented student-athletes are preparing for the 2017-18 athletics year at the University of Iowa.

Others will bring to their team a season or two of experience in competition and in the classroom. Still others will be upperclassmen who have experienced each of the 14 Big Ten Conference campuses, Big Ten tournament competition, NCAA championship competition, or the fun and excitement of a postseason bowl game.
