Biography

(From NFL.com) Hooker was a finalist for Minnesota's Mr. Football Award in 2015 as well as a three-time all-state pick for his play as a defensive back and on offense. He played in all 13 games, making four tackles as a true freshman, primarily on special teams. Hooker got into the defensive lineup during his sophomore season, starting at free or strong safety six times and posting 56 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups in 10 contests (missed three due to a bruised knee). Iowa coaches created a new safety/linebacker hybrid position in their defense for Hooker in 2018. The result of the move was him earning the Big Ten Defensive Back of the Year award after racking up 65 tackles, 3.5 for loss, four interceptions, seven pass breakups and a safety in 13 starts.
