(AP) Jarrod Uthoff is staying in the Big Ten – and he figures to see plenty more of Bo Ryan over the next few years. Uthoff told The Associated Press in a phone interview on Wednesday night that he's transferring to Iowa even though Badgers coach Bo Ryan restricted the Hawkeyes from contacting him.

Uthoff will have to pay his own way next year at Iowa and will also have to sit out the 2012-13 season per NCAA transfer rules. But that's not an issue for Uthoff, who hails from nearby Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

"I just didn't want money to be a factor in where I wanted to play," Uthoff said.
