Former Iowa running back Brandon Wegher has plans to transfer and walk-on to Oklahoma, Wegher told the Des Monies Register this afternoon.

Wegher, who didn’t play a down this year, set an Iowa freshman record in 2009 when he rushed for eight touchdowns. He also ran for 641 yards averaging 4.0 yards per carry. He added a 32-yard TD scamper in the 2010 Orange Bowl win over Georgia Tech.

Wegher left the squad soon after the start of this last season’s fall camp in August. Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz said at the time Wegher was dealing with some personal issues.

To see what kind of player he is, watch these YouTube highlights from Wegher’s freshman season.
