  05/14/22 - Brylan LanierrSo/2025, Indiana, 6-0, 170 (DS#999 CB) + More +

  Former Alabama walk-on cornerback Brylan Lanier, who entered the transfer portal after one season, announced his commitment to Indiana on Friday. The graphic posted on social media includes a picture of his son wearing his helmet as he appearances in a Hoosiers uniform. Lanier did not appear in game action for Alabama over his one season, but did earn the respect of the staff before entering the transfer portal and ultimately decided to leave. Despite walking on at Alabama, Lanier ranked as a three-star recruit and the No. 1,295 overall prospect in the 2021 On3 Consensus. The local product played high school football just a few minutes away from Tuscaloosa at Paul W. Bryant and ranked No. 53 in the state. - Brylan Lanier's Twitter

  Shaun Shivers, nicknamed "the worm", and Josh Henderson are two transfers from Power 5 schools expected to contribute immediately in the run game. At 5-foot-7 and 190 pounds, Shivers is a versatile back with 1,020 career rushing yards on 5.1 yards per carry in three seasons at Auburn. Shivers also can catch the ball out of the backfield, with 38 catches for 211 yards and one TD in his career. - Herald Bulletin

  At 6-foot-7, 290 pounds, Lang has always had the prototypical NFL body. He's got the skills, too, but needs more production. He said this spring his main objective is to produce more impact plays. He has 9.5 sacks and 17.5 tackles for loss in his career. If he has a highly productive senior year, he could be high on the NFL radar. - AP College Football

  05/07/22 - Jack TuttlerSr/2023, Indiana, 6-3, 212 (DS#63 QB) + More +

  IU's quarterbacks combined to throw 15 interceptions in 12 games, the most by any team in the Big Ten. With Penix transferring to Washington, IU will enter fall camp with the starting quarterback job still up in the air. "The competition ahead for that position, that really excites me, and I'm anxious to see these guys," Allen said. "They've been working extremely hard. So, yeah, it's a full room, a competitive room. Excited to see how it's going to make each other better."

Jack Tuttle and Missouri transfer Connor Bazelak are two favorites to win the job, based on their experience. Tuttle went 0-2 last season as a starter, passing for 423 yards with two TDs and five interceptions. Bazelak possesses a strong arm and an ability to make plays downfield, but like Tuttle, needs to cut down on mistakes. Last season at Missouri, Bazelak passed for 2,548 yards with 16 TDs and 11 interceptions, with three 300-yard games. - Herald Bulletin

  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

  Poised for a 2022 standout season: DL JH Tevis, senior. The Hoosiers need to punch up their play after finishing last in the league in sacks. Tevis impressed with his high energy and leadership this spring after transferring from California, where he started 15 of 20 games and totaled 60 tackles and 8.5 for loss in three seasons. - AP College Football

  04/26/22 - AJ BarnerJr/2024, Indiana, 6-5, 245 (DS#999 TE) + More +

  A.J. Barner put together a solid spring camp to solidify his hold on the starting job at tight end heading into the 2022 season. Barner displayed his athletic ability with a 76-yard catch-and-run touchdown against Idaho and finished 2021 with 14 catches for 162 yards and TDs. A former two-way standout at linebacker and tight end out of Aurora, Ohio, the 6-foot-6, 251-pound Barner has worked on other aspects of his game, such as run blocking, to become a more complete tight end. "I'm a guy who will take care of my business in the run game and be physical up front," Barnes said. "Being in that leadership role and being vocal." - Herald Bulletin

  California transfer J.H. Tevis has impressed coaches this spring with his playmaking ability on the field and his leadership intangibles off the field. The 6-foot-4, 281-pound Tevis posted three sacks and 8.5 tackles in three seasons with the Golden Bears. "His work ethic is off the chart," Randolph said. "He loves playing football. That is evident when you see him in practice every day. His thing, also, is 'I am going to be high energy, practice hard, work hard and I will show you how we do things." - Herald Bulletin

  UCLA transfer Myles Jackson has impressed IU coaches this spring with his energy and playmaking ability. The 6-foot-2, 251-pound Jackson had six tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery in seven games at UCLA last season. Jackson could emerge as the edge rusher at the bull position. "He has a high attention to detail and a phenomenal rep-based (memory)," said IU special teams coach Kasey Teegardin, who will be coaching the husky and bull spots this season. "I tell him something one time and he is so locked in, so focused and so intense. He is such an intense individual in the way he attacks every drill, every meeting." - Herald Bulletin

  04/22/22 - JH TevisrSr/2023, Indiana, 6-4, 281 (DS#34 DE) + More +

  Tom Allen went into the offseason believing the Hoosiers needed a lot more length and girth in the front of the defense and he went out and got that. In Patrick Lucas and LeDarrius Cox, he brought in two 300-pound plus tackles from Ole Miss to work with returners Demarcus Elliott and Sio Nofoagatoto'a in the interior. Dominick James, a 6-2, 293-pound freshman from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. who had offers from Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State among other powerhouses, has proven to be a playmaker in the early going and could be an immediate part of the defensive tackle rotation. The best bet to start immediately, though, is California transfer JH Tevis. The defensive end role is open with Ryder Anderson out of eligibility after one season with the Hoosiers in which he finished second on the team in both sacks and tackles for loss. The 6-4, 281-pound Tevis doesn't bring the same length as the 6-6 Anderson, but he could also bring some pass rush skill and ability to set the edge. The coaching staff has also been impressed by the leadership of Tevis, who picked IU so he could pursue an MBA in the Kelley School of Business. - Indianapolis Star/News

  The Hoosiers' leading returning rusher among running backs is walk-on Charlie Spegal, who finished with 62 yards on 19 carries last season. They addressed the position in both the transfer portal and high school recruiting and liked what they saw in the spring. The 5-7, 190-pound Shivers left Auburn because he found himself pigeon-holed in a third-down role, and wanted to prove that he can be an every-down back. In the spring, he showed toughness in between the tackles and breakaway speed. "He continues to just show who he is," Allen said. - Indianapolis Star/News

  04/20/22 - Connor BazelakrJr/2024, Indiana, 6-3, 212 (DS#11 QB) + More +

  The Hoosiers return two quarterbacks who started games last year in fifth-year senior Jack Tuttle and sophomore Donaven McCulley, and both are very much in the mix to win the starting job. However, Allen wanted more depth at the position than he had in 2021 and he has it. Bazelak comes to Indiana after three years at Missouri with far more passing production than anyone else in the room, throwing for 5,050 yards and 23 touchdowns. which puts him well beyond Tuttle's 819 passing yards and four touchdowns in a career spent almost entirely as a backup to this point.

Bazelak certainly doesn't have a lock on the starting job, but coaches do feel he has the arm strength to make all the throws. He's working on familiarity with Bell's offense and developing rapport with receivers he's never played with before, and honing his accuracy. "Just being able to be more comfortable with his teammates," Allen said when asked about Bazelak's development this spring. "...To be able to throw the ball accurately, and throw it with decisiveness." - Indianapolis Star/News

  Shaun Shivers will finish out his college career in the Big Ten. The former Auburn running back, who entered the transfer portal two days after the regular-season finale, announced Saturday that he has committed to Indiana. Shivers graduated from Auburn on Friday and will use his free year of eligibility granted by the NCAA due to the pandemic with the Hoosiers next season. The 5-foot-7, 189-pounder out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., spent four seasons as a complementary piece in Auburn's backfield. He finished his Auburn career with 1,020 rushing yards and eight touchdowns on 201 carries, averaging 5.1 yards per attempt over the last four seasons, while also catching 38 passes for another 211 yards and a touchdown. - Birmingham News
