Bettendorf Grad Nicholas Baer Earns Basketball Scholarship from Iowa
After helping the Hawkeyes win over 20 games and reach the 2nd round of the NCAA Tournament this season, Iowa is returning the favor to Nicholas Baer.
The walk-on was a major part of this season's success and the University has rewarded him with a full basketball scholarship for the next three years.
Baer, a Bettendorf graduate, broke the school record with six blocks in a win over Drake back in December and continued his success throughout the year.
Barring an injury or major drop off, Baer is likely to be a starter for the Hawkeyes next season.
