IOWA CITY, Iowa – University of Iowa senior Quinn Schulte has been named to the Academic All-America second team. The announcement was made on Tuesday by College Sports Communicators, formerly the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
A member of Iowa’s Leadership Group last season, Schulte is a four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree. The native of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was also recognized on the Dean’s List six times between 2019-22.
Schulte (6-foot-1, 209 pounds) started all 14 games at free safety in 2023. He ranked fourth on the squad in tackles (65), tied for third with four pass break-ups, to go along with an interception (39-yard return versus Rutgers). After the season, Schulte was named an honorable mention all-conference selection and was a Brett Greenwood Award recipient.
Schulte holds a 3.72 grade point average and graduated with a degree in interdepartmental studies (health science-multidisciplinary science) with a minor in human physiology last spring. He plans on starting the dentistry DDS program this fall.
Last month, Schulte announced that he would return in 2024 for a sixth season. He has started all 27 Hawkeye games played the last two seasons.
In 25 seasons under Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz, 11 Iowa football student-athletes have combined on 15 occasions to earn Academic All-America recognition.
