Incoming Indiana JUCO transfer QB Richard Lagow has a chance to win the starting job in his first year on campus.

Lagow, the No. 49 player on the ESPN JC50, is hoping his fourth collegiate stop is the charm. He began at UConn, transferred to Oklahoma State, spent two years at Cisco Junior College and is now back in the sport's highest division, where he hopes to replace Nate Sudfeld. Lagow (6-foot-6, 235 pounds) certainly looks the part and plays a similar game, with a big arm and a willingness to test coverage. Lagow will battle Danny Cameron, Zander Diamont and Austin King to become Sudfeld's heir beginning this spring. Lagow, rated a three-star by Scout and the No. 7 junior college quarterback in the country, has two years of eligibility left.

NFL scouts rank DT Darius Latham as "one of the most underrated defensive tackles in the upcoming draft and give him a second/third round grade," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reports.

The 6-foot-4, 310-pound junior declared for the draft in December. "Latham was approached about joining the Hoosiers basketball team but passed on the opportunity," Pauline wrote. "Expect the athletic tackle to put up some impressive numbers during the Scouting Combine later this month." Latham has some off-the-field issues he will have to answer for in Indianapolis. If he dispels character concerns, he may be headed towards Day 2.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah noted that while Indiana T Jason Spriggs failed to show consistency on film, "he put together a steady, dependable week of [Senior Bowl] practice."

Jeremiah termed Spriggs' practice week as "outstanding," as the 6-foot-7, 307-pounder "displayed quick feet, balance and knee bend." The draft analyst went on to write that he believes Spriggs will be off the draft board by the end of the second round and could even earn talk as a potential first round selection. The now-former Hoosier is an athletic pass-blocking savant, allowing just 13 pressures during the 2015 campaign.

Indiana T Jason Spriggs ranked No. 20 in PFF's run-block grades and No. 5 in its pass-block grades last year.

Spriggs allowed only 13 pressures. "His athleticism was on full display in Tuesday’s practice, particularly with his footwork," the PFF gang wrote from the Senior Bowl. "He consistently was able to mirror pass-rushers, even when they came at him with counter moves. Because he is better as a pass-protector than as a mauling run-blocker, he’s likely a better fit in a zone-heavy scheme than a power scheme. But he could be really highly valued by NFL teams that put a premium on athleticism on the offensive line. We wouldn’t be surprised if he emerges as a rising prospect in the coming weeks and months." Last month, CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang indicated that scouts were "excited about his upside." Rang believes Spriggs can stick at left tackle, too, given his "size and athleticism."

At Tuesday's Shrine Game practices, Indiana QB Nate Sudfeld "made a few of the best throws of the day" but "also struggled with his consistency," reports CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"He is a tall drink of water with a big arm, slinging the rock all over the field," Brugler wrote. "However, his delivery is inconsistent due to his long arms, which leads to accuracy issues and sailing throws. Although his touch isn't on a NFL level right now, Sudfeld checks a lot of boxes, making him a possible development option." The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sudfeld threw for 3,573 yards with a 27/7 TD/INT ratio over his final collegiate season. He looks like a Day 3 prospect.

Per TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, NFL scouts believe Indiana QB Nate Sudfeld "is significantly underrated and was worthy of a Senior Bowl invitation."

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sudfeld for 3,573 yards with a 27/7 TD/INT ratio in his final collegiate season. "He offers next level size, arm strength and intelligence, so why is he universally ranked as a last day pick? Prior injuries are a concern but so is the inconsistent accuracy of Sudfeld’s throws," Pauline wrote. "While the big passer shows the ability to be on the mark he often sprays throws and even delivers bounce passes on occasion. Is it mechanical? Is it a timing issue? Whatever the case throwing to receivers that are foreign to him as well as playing from underneath center during Shrine week will be critical factors in Sudfeld’s final draft grade." Nate is the brother of New York Jets tight end Zach Sudfeld.

Indiana redshirt junior G Dan Feeney will return for his final year of eligibility in 2016.

"Dan put a lot of time and thought into this decision," head coach Kevin Wilson said. "We are excited he is returning and really like the direction this program is headed. Dan is one of the best players I have ever been around. He is the total package, not only on the field but in the way he approaches the game and who he is as a person." The first team All-American offensive lineman has allowed only one sack in 37 starts at right guard, spanning 2,719 snaps. Feeney reportedly asked the advisory committee for a draft grade. We haven't heard what the NFL told him. Feeney was an Outland Trophy and Lombardi Award Watch Lister in 2015 and will be again in 2016. "I am excited to continue to be a part of this great program," Feeney said. "Coach Wilson and Coach Frey were extremely valuable during this process and I thank them for their assistance."

Indiana hired USF DC Tom Allen to serve in the same capacity.

In order to make room for Allen on staff, 2015 DC Brian Knorr has reportedly been fired. Allen was getting buzz in regards to potentially taking the coordinating role at Auburn in December. That job ultimately went to LSU's Kevin Steele. Allen will have a bit more of an uphill climb with the Hoosiers than he might have with the Tigers--this past season, Indiana ranked among the worst defenses in the country on multiple statistical fronts. Replacing him as defensive coordinator at South Florida will be LB coach Raymond Woodie.

Indiana signed HC Kevin Wilson to a six-year extension.

It's a nice deal for Wilson, who's now under contract through the 2021 season. In addition to the years, he's also receiving a raise. Under the new deal, he'll make $2.55 million annually--a number more than double what he made during the 2015 campaign. Indiana finished this past season with a 6-7 record after falling to Duke in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, but they house an explosive offense. And something vaguely resembling a defense.

Indiana junior DT Darius Latham will enter the 2016 NFL Draft.

Indiana will look quite different in 2016, with QB Nate Sudfeld and T Jason Spriggs graduating, and Latham now joining RB Jordan Howard in declaring for the draft. Latham was suspended in late September (for a second time) due to an issue involving Indiana's student ethics office.

Indiana junior RB Jordan Howard announced on Monday that he will forgo his senior year and declare for the 2016 NFL draft.

Despite missing four games this season, the former UAB transfer posted 1,213 yards and nine touchdowns for the Hoosiers. The Indiana prospect averaged at least 145 yards a game in games he finished, becoming the 11th RB in school history to rush for over 1000 yards.

NFL Network's Rhett Lewis noted that Indiana senior OT Jason Spriggs played a huge part in helping sophomore RB Devine Redding rush for 227 yards against Indiana in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

In addition to helping block for Redding on his big day at Yankee Stadium, Spriggs also kept QB Nate Sudfeld clean. The 6-foot-7, 307-pound senior did not allow a sack. Last week, CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang indicated that scouts were "excited about his upside." Rang believes Spriggs can stick at left tackle, too, given his "size and athleticism."

Indiana sophomore WR Simmie Cobbs Jr. caught six passes for 121 yards in Saturday's 44-41 OT loss to Duke in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Cobbs failed to surpass 75 yards receiving in Indiana's first six games, but he turned up the heat in the second half of the season. Down the stretch, he notched four 100-yard receiving efforts in his final seven games. Rivals ranked the 6-foot-4, 212-pound sophomore as the No. 27 prospect in the state of Illinois out of high school. After logging just seven catches for 114 yards as a freshman, he closes out the 2015 campaign working with a 60-1035-4 receiving line.

Indiana sophomore RB Devine Redding rushed for 227 yards and a touchdown on 35 carries in Saturday's 44-41 OT loss to Duke in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

Redding received the start due to the fact that Jordan Howard (knee) was unable to go. The 5-foot-10, 195-pound sophomore more than held his own in an expanded role, averaging 6.5 YPC with a long run of 39 yards. He scored his lone touchdown from 17 yards out in the second quarter, taking the hand-off and knifing through a hole up the middle for daylight. While Devine's numbers were understandably muted a touch when Howard played, he posted huge efforts in each of his last three games, rushing for 130, 144 and 227 against Maryland, Purdue and Duke respectively. Overall, he rumbled his way to 1,012 yards and nine touchdowns for the 2015 campaign.

Indiana senior QB Nate Sudfeld completed 28-of-51 passes for 389 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions in Saturday's 44-41 OT loss to Duke in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl.

The game ended in bizarre enough fashion, as Indiana kicker Griffin Oakes missed a 38-yard field goal in overtime to send the Blue Devils out happy. Except he might not have missed it. The ball sailed over the right goalpost, nullifying it from potential review (field goals are only reviewable between the goal posts). On television replay, it appeared that had the ball been lower, it might have thunked off the post. But who knows. Duke players began to celebrate at mid-field after the kick was deemed no-good, while Oakes and company stomped about in confusion. Overshadowed by the twist ending, the 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sudfeld played his final college game. He finished the 2015 campaign having thrown for 3,573 yards with a 27/7 TD/INT ratio. His strong season's put him on the radar as a potential sleeper for the 2016 NFL Draft.
