Indiana G Dan Feeney said that the Browns tested his memory with card tricks during his interview.

Every draft season is good for a few weird interview stories, but even by weird draft standards, using card tricks as a memory-tester is one of the memorable ones that we have heard. Leave it to the Browns to evaluate their prospects via magic. Jokes aside, Feeney is one of the top guards in the 2017 class.

Multiple outlets are reporting that Indiana will hire Syracuse RB coach Mike Hart to serve in the same capacity.

Hart -- Michigan's all-time leading rusher -- initially joined HC Dino Babers' staff at Syracuse last year. Now, onward to Indiana. Previously, he coached up running backs at Western Michigan (2014-2015) and Eastern Michigan (2012-2013).

FOX Sports' Bruce Feldman reports that Indiana will hire Houston OL coach Darren Hiller to serve in the same capacity.

Hiller has been with Houston just under a month. Moving on, now. At Indiana, he will replace departed OL coach Greg Frey. This past season, Hiller acted as South Florida's co-offensive coordinator, run game coordinator and OL coach.

Indiana hired Central Michigan RB coach Nick Sheridan to serve as quarterbacks coach.

Sheridan just joined the Chippewa staff last month. Short-lived stay there, that one, as the Hoosiers have now tabbed him to replace Shawn Watson as QB coach. Watson jumped ship from Indiana to take the vacant offensive-coordinating gig at Pittsburgh on Thursday. While Sheridan was initially hired to coach up Central Michigan's running backs, he won't be out of place in his new role with Indiana -- Sheridan played quarterback at Michigan from 2006-2009.

Indiana signed three-star 2017 DT Juan Harris.

Harris was as fickle as they come during the 2017 cycle, thrice committing to and thrice decommitting from Iowa. He eventually did opt for the Big Ten -- just not with the Hawkeyes. That silliness aside, Rivals ranks the defensive tackle as the No. 37 prospect at his position in the 2017 class. One little tidbit of note, here: While Rivals and Scout both list Harris as a defensive lineman, the ESPN 300 sees him home at guard. The latter outlet notes that "regardless of what side of the ball he plays on he must work on his conditioning if he wants to stay on the field longer and maximize his potential." It remains to be seen how the Hoosiers might utilize the hulking human. He measures out at 6-foot-4, 368 pounds.

Indiana signed three-star RB Morgan Ellison.

Ellison was also considering Toledo and Ohio. Scout.com refers to the 6-foot-1, 220-pounder as "look[ing] good on the hoof." The outlet is also keen on his abilities as a pass-catcher out of the backfield. Injuries during his sophomore and junior years might have cooled Ellison's recruitment by degrees.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline says Indiana G Dan Feeney "dominated everyone he faced" at Monday's Senior Bowl practices.

"Feeney showed great power, intensity and did not give up an inch to opponents," Pauline wrote. "He blocked with great technique, intensity and looked every part of a top-42 pick today." An AFC scout speaking to NFL.com in November about the 6-foot-4, 310-pound Feeney was less generous due to questions about his strength. "I just question his power at the point. I think he's a zone blocker. You don't draft those guys early," the scout said.

USC three-star 2017 verbal ATH commit Juwan Burgess flipped his pledge to Indiana.

Burgess' future position with the Hoosiers isn't yet known, as the multi-faceted athlete has played on both offense and defense at Tampa Plant High School (Florida). This past season, the 5-foot-11, 185-pounder logged a 14-229-4 receiving line on the offensive side of the ball. He proved even more productive on defense, registering 63 tackles, eight passes defended and three interceptions. Rivals ranks him as the No. 53 athlete in the 2017 class.

Indiana redshirt junior LB Marcus Oliver will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Oliver earned himself All-Big Ten honorable mention this past season on the strength of 96 tackles (16.0 for loss), four sacks and a hearty five fumbles forced. While the 6-foot-1, 238-pounder has been immensely productive over the past two seasons, he is going to need to make a hard push during the draft process if he is to make it into the Day 3 conversation. CBS Sports currently ranks him as the 43rd inside linebacking prospect in the country.

Indiana junior RB Devine Redding will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Redding is fresh off a 2016 season in which he rushed for 1,122 yards. This, after posting 1,012 yards on the ground in 2015. While those totals are nice enough, the 5-foot-10, 195-pounder averaged just 4.4 YPC during his Indiana career and fails to crack the 2017 draft rankings of either Walter Football or Tony Pauline. CBS Sports ranks him as the No. 18 running back prospect for 2018. All of this is a long way of saying that Day 3 is likely the best that Redding can hope for come the spring draft. In a loaded running back class, he may well not be drafted at all.
Jan 6 - 3:52 PM

Indiana redshirt junior CB Rashard Fant will return to the school for the 2017 season.

Fant was described as the school's top corner by local beat writers. He is a two-year starter and landed Second team all-Big Ten honors this year. He's on the thinner side at 5-foot-10 and 177-pounds.
Jan 5 - 11:45 AM

SEC Country's Mike Griffith reports that Indiana will hire Tennessee OC Mike DeBord to serve in the same capacity.

DeBord has served as Tennessee's offensive coordinator each of the past two seasons. With his reported exit to Indiana, one interesting name to keep notice of would be former Oregon HC Mark Helfrich. Helfrich has reportedly interviewed with Tennessee on several occasions. The original thinking was that he might serve as quarterbacks coach next to DeBord. With DeBord no longer on board, though, Helfrich could see a more beefy role should Tennessee opt to hire him.

Indiana redshirt sophomore WR Isaac Griffith has chosen to retire due to knee concerns.

Griffith initially tore his ACL a year ago October. While the 6-foot, 194-pound wideout was hopeful that he would be able to play this season, he was forced to undergo a second procedure on that same knee in August due to a nerve issue. Said Griffith, "[Retiring] was a tough decision but I believe God has a reason for everything and I trust his plan." He finishes his Indiana career having caught five passes for 54 yards.
Jan 2 - 5:21 PM

The IndyStar reports that Indiana has fired OC Kevin Johns and TE/FB coach James Patton.

Patton additionally served as a key recruiter for the Hoosiers. He had been on the Indiana sideline for the last four years. Johns was a member of former HC Kevin Wilson's staff from the start, coming on along with Wilson in 2011. While new HC Tom Allen has not pieced together his entire staff as of yet, the team is reportedly hiring Ole Miss WR coach Grant Heard to serve in that capacity -- and perhaps even in a larger capacity.

Indiana redshirt junior WR Marqui Hawkins will retire.

Hawkins initially joined Florida in 2013, then transferred to UAB before transferring once more to Indiana. With the Hoosiers, the 6-foot-1, 213-pounder did not record any significant statistical output.
