Former UH running back Joey Iosefa is scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis today for the NFL Scouting Combine.
For Iosefa, the activities start tomorrow, with an orientation session, X-rays and interviews with teams. There will be medical tests and more interviews on Thursday. The psychological exams and bench-press tests are Friday. Field workouts, including the 40-yard dash, is set for Saturday.
Iosefa weighed 246 yesterday, a pound off his goal, but considerably less than when he was 260 at the end of the 2014 season. He hopes to weigh 240 for UH’s pro day on March 19 in San Diego.
