 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Indiana redshirt sophomore quarterback Michael Penix Jr. was ready for an important spring, one that would continue to establish him as the unquestioned leader of IU's offense. The goal for Penix when IU football resumes will be to show he can last a full season. That's why he put on more than 15 pounds of muscle on his 6-foot-3 frame. At 218 pounds, Penix feels more confident handling the hits that come in playing a full Big Ten conference season. Last season, Penix played at between 200 and 205 pounds. "We talked about 220, so I hit that pretty quick," Penix said. "But just wherever is comfortable and whatever is going to help the team, and as long as I still feel like I can move, I feel good." Last year at this time, Penix was recovering from a torn ACL and was part of a three-way quarterback competition with incumbent starter Peyton Ramsey and Utah transfer Jack Tuttle. Penix won the quarterback competition out of fall camp and in six starts last season showed he was more than capable of sparking the offense.

Twice last season, Penix was named Big Ten freshman of the week, when he passed for 326 yards in IU's season opener at Ball State and when he completed 20 straight passes and passed for 286 yards at Michigan State. Overall, Penix completed 110 of 160 attempts for 1,394 yards with 10 touchdowns and four interceptions, while adding 118 yards rushing on 5.4 yards per carry and two rushing TDs. The 68.8 percent completion mark set an IU record and ranked sixth in Big Ten history. But Penix dealt with various injuries during the course of the season that was cut short Nov. 2 when he suffered a broken joint in his collarbone against Northwestern. - Herald Bulletin
