  D.J. Matthews didn't take part in spring drills after tearing his ACL in IU's 33-31 win at Western Kentucky last Sept. 25. Matthews showed speed and big-play potential in four games for IU last season, finishing with 13 catches for 165 yards and one rushing TD against Cincinnati. - Herald Bulletin

  Florida State transfer wide receiver D.J. Matthews gives IU a proven playmaker on special teams. Matthews returned 37 punts for 457 yards in three seasons at FSU, including a 74-yard punt return for a TD against Miami. Indiana special teams coach Kasey Teegardin said Matthews will compete with Reese Taylor, who returned nine punts for 73 last season to earn honorable mention All-Big Ten special teams honors.

"He's confident overall," Teegardin said. "He looks comfortable back there fielding the ball. We did a better job last year (than) two years ago, when the ball was kicked and rolling around. I think Reese did a better job. We call it hidden yardage, is where the ball bounces and how much yardage we can actually lose from giving our offense that starting field position. "We want to field every single punt we possibly can. He is confident enough in himself and his abilities to go do that. I think Reese was obviously an all-conference punt returner as well, so there will be a little bit of a battle there, but I think the depth overall is better than what we've had." - Herald Bulletin

  04/18/21 - WR D.J. Matthews Jr.rSr/2023, Indiana, 5-10, 160 (DS#44 WR) + More +

  Florida State transfer receiver D.J. Matthews Jr. was named one of the two most outstanding offensive players this spring, while Ole Miss transfer defensive end Ryder Anderson was named one of the two most outstanding defensive players. Both should figure prominently into IU's plans in the 2021 season. The 5-foot-10, 153-pound Matthews came to IU as an established receiving and return threat in three seasons in the ACC with the Seminoles. "He had a really good spring," Allen said. "It was from Day 1, I think he might have got offensive player of the day the first practice he had, just his quickness, very, very good route runner, not a very big guy but extremely quick, also good speed, really good ball skills, had a great attitude, just a really likeable person." Matthews will likely line up as a slot receiver and return punts in the fall. "Just gives us another weapon in that throwing game, which we really need and just has a chance to replace what Whop (Philyor) gave us at that position," Allen said. - Herald Bulletin

  Norvell confirmed senior receiver D.J. Matthews has entered the transfer portal with intent to leave the program. "Sometimes when you go through transitions, there are some things that fit better than others and D.J.'s making a decision for his future and we fully support him in that decision," Norvell said of the move, which was first reported by AL.com and 247Sports.com. Matthews, who started 15 games, has been absent from the team after he spoke out on social media about Florida State's handling of COVID-19 safety protocol. Norvell told reporters last week he hadn't been in touch with the senior in several weeks. Matthews ranked second on the FSU roster in receiving last season with 36 catches for 355 yards and three touchdowns. He also was the Seminoles' primary punt returner with 19 returns for 125 yards. - Orlando Sentinel
