Iowa cornerback Micah Hyde entered a plea of guilty to a charge of interference with official acts and not guilty to a charge of public intoxication Monday in Johnson County District Court following his weekend arrest.
One of three Hawkeyes arrested by Iowa City police within 24 hours of each other in separate incidents during a bye week in the Iowa schedule, Hyde agreed to pay a fine and fees of $397.50 in exchange for his guilty plea. A bench trial has been scheduled for Dec. 27 on the public intoxication charge.
Hyde, a three-year starter who has captained the Hawkeyes in every game this season, is listed in a depth chart released Monday as the projected starter at right cornerback for Saturday’s 11 a.m. game at Michigan State.
Ray Hamilton, a second-team tight end who was charged with violating Iowa City’s under-21 ordinance which prohibits individuals under the age of 21 from being in establishments classified as bars, also remains listed as the back-up at his position on this week’s depth chart.
The third Hawkeye arrested, reserve offensive lineman Drew Clark, has not been on the two-deep depth chart since the start of the current season. Clark was arrested on public intoxication charges.
While Hyde and Hamilton maintain their positions on the depth chart, there are numerous other changes in Iowa’s depth this week, including the return of Damon Bullock who is listed as the second-team running back behind Mark Weisman.
Offensive guard Austin Blythe and left cornerback B.J. Lowery are not listed on the depth chart. Andrew Donnal is listed as Blythe’s replacement, while Greg Castillo is penciled in at the cornerback spot.
Redshirt freshman Cole Fisher makes first appearance in the two-deep, listed as the back-up to Anthony Hitchens at weakside linebacker.
