  01/15/21 - *Stevie Scott IIIJr/2021, Indiana, 6-1, 231 (DS#16 RB) + More +

  Indiana junior running back Stevie Scott declared for the NFL Draft on Friday, shaking up the Hoosiers' offensive plans for 2021. This is only somewhat surprising because of Scott's production in 2020. He gained 581 yards, which ranked fourth in the Big Ten, but it came on a 3.6-yard-per-carry average. In his record-setting freshman season in 2018, Scott averaged 5 yards per carry behind a more veteran line. That number fell to 4.7 as a sophomore. - Hoosier Sports Report

  Indiana junior safety Jamar Johnson declared for the NFL Draft on Monday night, leaving a hole to fill in IU's secondary. Johnson made the announcement on his Twitter account. In moving from husky to safety to start the 2020 season, Johnson flourished, earning All-Big Ten honors this season. He tied cornerback Jaylin Williams for the team-lead in interceptions with four, while finishing the year with 43 tackles, one sack and four pass breakups. The 6-foot-1, 197-pound Johnson finished his IU career with four sacks, two forced fumbles and seven interceptions, including an interception returned 63 yards for a touchdown against Tennessee in the 2020 Gator Bowl. - Herald Bulletin

  01/13/21 - Zach CarpenterrFr/2024, Indiana, 6-4, 329 (DS#999 C) + More +

  Indiana announced the addition of Michigan transfer offensive lineman Zach Carpenter on Monday. The 6-5, 329-pound Carpenter, out of Archbishop Moeller in Cincinnati, appeared in six games as a redshirt freshman last season for Michigan and started one game at center. "He's a young man that we recruited heavily coming out of high school," Indiana coach Tom Allen said. "We know his family well, we know him well and we are happy for him to be able to join us. He has experience as a starter in the Big Ten and brings us high character, high work ethic and a lot of toughness." Carpenter could step in to replace senior center Harry Crider, who announced his intention to declare for the NFL draft on Sunday. - Herald Bulletin

  01/11/21 - Ty FryfoglerSr/2022, Indiana, 6-2, 214 (DS#8 WR) + More +

  Two Indiana starting receivers made different decisions about their future this weekend. Senior receiver Ty Fryfogle, taking advantage of the NCAA's rule giving players an additional year of eligibility due to the pandemic, announced Friday night he's coming back to the Hoosiers in 2021. Senior receiver Whop Philyor, meanwhile, announced Saturday afternoon he's declaring for the NFL draft. The 6-foot-4, 214-pound Fryfogle earned Big Ten receiver of the year honors in 2020, finishing the year with 37 catches for 721 yards and seven TDs.

He became the first Big Ten receiver to post back-to-back 200 yard games in history -- accomplishing the feat against Michigan State and Ohio State. His production tailed off when Jack Tuttle replaced injured starter Michael Penix as quarterback late in the season, but with Penix expected to recover from a torn ACL for the start of the 2021 season, Fryfogle could be poised for another big season. - Herald Bulletin

  01/10/21 - Harry CriderSr/2021, Indiana, 6-3, 311 (DS#17 C) + More +

  Indiana offensive lineman Harry Crider announced Sunday he will pursue a pro career and will not return to the Hoosiers in 2021. Crider, a fourth-year senior, could have returned for a fifth season because the NCAA extended an additional year of eligibility to all fall athletes. A two-year starter, Crider manned left guard as a junior, and he started all eight games at center as a senior. - The Indianapolis Star

  01/10/21 - Michael Penix Jr.rSo/2023, Indiana, 6-2, 218 (DS#13 QB) + More +

  Penix suffered his second torn ACL in the span of three years, but Allen was optimistic about the timeline for his recovery after he underwent surgery the week before Christmas. Penix recovered quickly from his first torn ACL by living in the rehab room. He was throwing by April 2019 after sustaining the injury in October 2018. There are no guarantees as every rehabilitation is different, but it's hard to bet against Penix returning based on his work ethic. How important is Penix? Over the last two seasons, Penix is 11-2 as a starter. Other IU starting quarterbacks went 3-5 during that same span. - Herald Bulletin

  A redshirt freshman offensive lineman on the Michigan football team who announced in December plans to enter the NCAA's transfer portal is leaving. But he's remaining in the Big Ten. Zach Carpenter, who started two games at center this season for the Wolverines, said Thursday night that he plans on transferring to Indiana. "Excited to start a new opportunity as a Hoosier!," the 6-foot-5, 329-pound lineman wrote on Twitter. Carpenter also used the Hoosiers' mantra "LEO" ("love each other") and tagged Indiana head coach Tom Allen and offensive line coach Darren Hiller. - Ann Arbor News
