Indiana has hired former South Alabama DC Kane Wommack to be the new linebacker coach.

With Wommack coming to coach the unit, former Hoosiers' linebackers coach William Inge will shift to coaching special teams. Prior to serving as the South Alabama defensive coordinator, Wommack worked at Eastern Illinois, and also served as a graduate assistant for Mississippi, Jacksonville State and Tennessee-Martin.

Miami senior C Nick Linder will transfer to Indiana for the 2018 season.

Linder sat out all of 2017 with the intention of transferring. Prior to a 2016 shoulder injury, Linder started 21 straight games. He will be eligible to play immediately.
Jan 3 - 10:16 AM

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

Cobbs (6'4/212) put in a 72-841-8 receiving line for the current campaign, setting career bests for receptions and touchdown grabs. Perhaps his most impressive performance of the season came in the opener against Ohio State's loaded defense -- he caught 11 passes for 149 yards and a touchdown in the loss -- with Walter Football's Charlie Campbell noting that he displayed "size, hands, quickness, route-running, body control, and the ability to win 50-50 passes" in that contest. Cobbs is widely viewed as a Day 2 prospect for the spring, but will have upward mobility toward Day 1 with a strong evaluating process.

Indiana signed uncommitted four-star 2018 QB Mike Penix.

Penix (6'3/185) had been in Tennessee's corner before he backed off that pledge earlier this month. He eventually settled on Indiana over South Florida and Florida State. The four-star gunslinger is raw, raw, raw in his throwing, but does have the arm to eventually develop into a competitive Big Ten quarterback if Indiana's staff can clean up some of his technical drawbacks -- for instance, he has something of a long release at this juncture.

Indiana senior LB Tegray Scales accepted an invite to the East-West Shrine Game.

Scales (6'0/230) has been one of the best defensive players for Indiana since he enrolled at the school in 2013. He was a monster in 2016 with 24 tackles for loss, and he's picked up 13 sackes in his sophomore and junior season. If he performs well in his pro day and the Shrine Game, he has a chance to be selected in the first 100 selections.

Indiana sophomore RB Tyler Natee will tranfer.

Natee (6'0/260) had hype coming in, with former Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson comparing him to Ron Dayne. Unfortunately, things didn't work out in Bloomington. Natee rushed for 237 yards on 61 attempts with two touchdowns in 2016, but he wasn't given a single carry in 2017. He suffered from an undisclosed injury during the campaign. It's possible that Natee will be given last year back in the form of a redshirt. Either way, he'll sit out next year if he transfers to another FBS school, per NCAA policies.

Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs hauled in seven passes for 105 yards and a touchdown in a 31-24 loss to Purdue on Saturday.

Cobbs finishes the year with 72 catches and 841 yards with seven touchdowns. Those are solid numbers, to be sure, but after his ridiculous start to the season, these numbers almost seem disappointing. You can blame that more on Indiana's inconsistent quarterback play than anything Cobbs did, however. He's rumored to be entering the draft, and most analysts believe he'll be selected before the end of the third round.

Indiana redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow completed 32-of-60 passes for 373 yards with three touchdowns and a pick in a 31-24 loss to Purdue on Saturday.

The loss means Indiana will not be going bowling. He wasn't very accurate against the Boilermakers, but he was able to make big plays with his arm, and found his talented receiving core for three receivers. It just wasn't enough as the Hoosiers weren't able to stop the Purdue rushing attack at all. It's possible Lagow will get a look from teams as late-UDFA prospect who believe in his arm.

Indiana freshman RB Morgan Ellison was carted off the field after suffering an injury in the third quarter of Saturday's game against Purdue.

The extent and nature of Ellison's injury is not yet known, but after being carted off the field he was loaded into an ambulance. The true freshman will undergo further evaluation in the hospital. Probably needless to say, he won't be returning to Saturday's contest. We'll pass along updates as they become available. Ellison had rushed for 688 yards and six touchdowns entering this weekend's action against the Boilermakers.

Indiana senior TE Ian Thomas has accepted an invitation to the Reese's Senior Bowl.

Thomas (6'5/250) has battled injuries this season, and hasn't been a consistent part of the Indiana offense. That being said, he's coming off a 4-93-1 game against Rutgers, and he's long been considered one of the better tight end prospects for the NFL draft. Right now, he's considered a day two prospect, but if he shows out against the competition of the Senior Bowl, that could improve.

Indiana redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow completed 17 of 28 attempts for 236 yards, two touchdowns and one interception in the school's 41-0 win over Rutgers.

There's not much more to say, as Indiana totally dominated Rutgers. This is the fourth straight game of two passing touchdowns for Lagow.
Sat, Nov 18, 2017 05:19:00 PM

Indiana freshman RB Morgan Ellison rushed for 149 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries in the school's 41-0 win over Rutgers on Saturday.

Ellison absolutely dominated and his day included a 45-yard touchdown run. The true freshman posted his second game of over 100 rushing yards and is creating optimism ahead of his 2018 season.

Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline reports that "it’s almost a forgone conclusion" that Indiana redshirt junior WR Simmie Cobbs will enter the draft after this season.

"... and many believe he’s close to deciding on representation," Pauline added. The analyst previously reported that NFL scouts grade Cobbs (6'4/212) as a Day 2 pick.

Indiana HC Tom Allen said that freshman QB Peyton Ramsey (knee) is "getting closer" to being able to play.

Allen also said that Richard Lagow is the starting quarterback and that "isn't going to change." Well then. Ramsey hurt his knee against Maryland on October 30, and hasn't played since. We'll see if Lagow still has the starting job if/when Ramsey is able to play.
Mon, Nov 13, 2017 07:22:00 PM

Indiana head coach Tom Allen confirmed that redshirt senior QB Richard Lagow will start Saturday against Rutgers.

Not only that, but Allen stated, with regards to Lagow starting, that "that isn't gonna change." Lagow has thrown for 1,327 yards and a 10/6 TD/INT ratio. Freshman QB Peyton Ramsey remains out, but is improving, Allen said.
