#21 London Iakopo
Class: RS Junior
Hometown: Carson, CA
Thoughts: If you read the countdown back on Day 24 you’ll remember how I called Zykiesis Cannon one of the “unnoticed” guys on a very good defense from last year. In that same vein, London Iakopo has to be the most forgotten player on the defense heading into the 2017 season.
London was a great pickup for the Cards out of JUCO (stole him from Arizona) last year as a former 4-star safety looking to push for some early PT backing up some veterans. The first couple games London was getting special teams love and was singled out by Petrino for being a big hitter who could also make the tackle, as he had already grabbed 5 in just three games.
