Tevaun Smith has replaced Don Shumpert as the starting wide receiver on Iowa’s depth chart released Monday.

Smith, a 6-foot-2 sophomore from Toronto, Ontario, had one catch for 25 yards in Saturday’s 27-21 victory at Iowa State. That catch, at the Iowa State 2, led to Iowa’s first touchdown of the game in the second quarter. That is one of two receptions Smith has had this season. Shumpert, a senior, has five catches.

There were no other changes on the depth chart. Right cornerback Jordan Lomax, who dressed and warmed up for the last two games but didn’t play because of a hamstring injury, is not listed on the two-deep again this week. True freshman Desmond King is still listed as the starter, backed up by Gavin Smith.

Iowa (2-1) plays Western Michigan at 11 a.m Saturday at Kinnick Stadium.
