High school career[edit]

He had 29 receptions for 542 yards and nine touchdowns as a tight end in 2008, and also recorded 68 tackles and two interceptions, including six sacks and one defensive touchdown. He was named district 4A-1 Defensive Player of the Year, and earned The Oklahoman Little All-City Defensive Player of the Year.[1]

After redshirting in 2009, Ikard would become the starting left guard in the final 12 games of the season, while appearing in all 14. In 2011, he started the first three games at left guard before sliding over to center for seven games due to an injury, then returning to left guard for the final three games of the season. He was named a third team All-American by the Associated Press and first team All-Big 12. In 2012, he played in 12 games, starting all 12 at center, while earning first team All-Big 12 honours once again. In his final season in 2013, he started all 13 games while being named first-team All-Big 12 for the third consecutive season.
