IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Brody Brecht’s schedule is so full that sometimes he make notes as a reminder of where he needs to be and when.

Others are Kansas outfielder-running back Devin Neal and first baseman-tight end Trevor Kardell, Michigan outfielder-linebacker Joey Velasquez, Georgia outfielder-receiver Randon Jernigan, Citadel outfielder-defensive back Dominick Poole and St. Thomas (Minnesota) pitcher-punter Kolby Gartner.
