Iowa's Peter Jok hopes to overcome shaky offseason and thrive for Hawkeyes

Iowa sophomore Peter Jok has enough talent to become the face of the program someday.

But first, he'll look to rebuild his reputation following a pair of offseason arrests.

Jok was arrested on his moped twice since the end of last season — once for drunk driving, once for driving it with a revoked license. He pleaded guilty to both charges. He also served a four-day jail sentence last month.

There's little doubt that the 6-foot-6 Jok has a chance to develop into an All-Big Ten player for the Hawkeyes. But another slip-up could put Jok's future with the Hawkeyes in jeopardy.

Jok was suspended by coach Fran McCaffery in July and reinstated six weeks later. He and the Hawkeyes (20-13, 9-9 Big Ten in 2013-14) open the season on Nov. 14 against Hampton.
