Former Iowa football player Brandon Wegher is named in a petition to establish legal custody of a son who was born Nov. 4, 2010, according to an Iowa courts online entry.
The petition was filed in Woodbury County District Court on Wednesday afternoon by Megan Marie Glisar, a former high jumper on the Iowa women’s track team from Sergeant Bluff.
In the petition, Glisar, 20, also seeks to establish visitation and child support.
Wegher did not return phone messages to The Des Moines Register on Friday.
Wegher is a highly-recruited running back from Sioux City Heelan who rushed for 641 yards and eight touchdowns as a true Iowa freshman in 2009.
He left the Hawkeyes during practice last fall for personal reasons, sitting out the 2010 season.
“Right now, Brandon Wegher has left camp,” Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said last August. “He’s working through some things personally, but we’re hopeful at some point here in the near future he’ll rejoin our team.”
Wegher transferred in January to Oklahoma, and joined the Sooners football team as a walk-on before leaving two weeks ago.
“He’s not with us anymore,” Sooners coach Bob Stoops told The Oklahoman newspaper.
“That didn’t last real long.”
