Indiana junior ILB T.J. Simmons "is slightly undersized but explosive and stands out in pursuit," notes TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline.

"He’s a scheme-specific player but has a good amount of next level potential," Pauline wrote. The Hoosiers' interior linebacker (6-foot-1, 233 pounds) enters the year with a fourth-round grade, at least in the estimation of this writer.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes Indiana senior OT Jason Spriggs is "a tackle with starting potential" at the next level, "assuming he passes medicals."

The 6-foot-7, 305-pound Spriggs has made 34 starts in 35 games for the Hoosiers at the left tackle position. The Indiana prospect only allowed two sacks in 689 snaps, recording 45 knockdowns, earning Honorable mention All-Big Ten honors in 2014. Spriggs runs an impressive 4.82 forty, has a vertical of 37.5" and does 33 reps of 225 on the bench.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline believes Indiana senior QB Nate Sudfeld "projects as a back-up at the next level."

The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sudfeld suffered a season-ending injury to his left shoulder against Iowa last October. In 14 career starts, Sudfeld has thrown for 4,306 yards and 34 touchdowns, while completing 60-percent of his passes. Sudfeld currently projects as a potential late-round NFL draft selection.

Indiana sophomore WR J-Shun Harris will miss the season due to an ACL injury.

Harris caught 18 passes for 168 yards with two touchdowns last season and returned as one of Indiana's top receivers. The passing game will take a step forward with Nate Sudfeld healthy, but the offense could take a step back overall.

Former Buckeye S Jayme Thompson announced via his twitter page that he will continue his career at Indiana University.

Thompson missed his entire freshman season at Ohio State, due to a broken ankle. In the spring of 2014, Thompson decided to transfer to Iowa Western Community College, where he recorded 81 tackles and 2 interceptions. Thompson will now be eligible to play right away for Indiana in 2015.

Indiana senior OT Jason Spriggs "excelled in sealing off the edge as [Tevin] Coleman often found a lane on the outside to make big plays," notes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The 6-foot-7, 305-pounder grades out as the No. 22 offensive lineman in the land, according to the analyst. Spriggs has made 34 starts in 35 games for the Hoosiers at left tackle. He allowed just two sacks in 689 snaps last year, chipping in 45 knockdowns. That kind of dominance earned him Honorable mention All-Big Ten honors last season, though we think he'd have been named to one of the teams had the Hoosiers been better.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes "consistency" is the key for Indiana senior QB Nate Sudfeld boosting his draft stock.

"He shared the quarterback duties his first two seasons for the Hoosiers and then last year, Sudfeld was lost for the season in October with a shoulder injury. Indiana loses its three top receivers from 2014, who accounted for 58-percent of the team's receptions last season, so Sudfeld has his work cut out for him in 2015, but consistency, not gaudy production, is the key for the quarterback boosting his draft stock," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound Sudfeld passed for 4,306 yards and 34 touchdowns, completing 60-percent of his passes in 2014.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler notes that Indiana senior OT Jason Spriggs is "a quick study with the needed movement skills for the position that has piqued the interest of NFL scouts."

"He needs to improve the timing and force of his punch in order to better control defenders, but he has the temperament needed to match up vs. fierce pass rushers. Spriggs is still developing and seeing new things, but he's a quick study with the needed movement skills for the position that has piqued the interest of NFL scouts," Brugler wrote. The 6-foot-6, 305-pound Spriggs allowed just two sacks in 689 snaps, with 45 knockdowns, earning Honorable mention All-Big Ten honors last season. Spriggs has shown that he is durable, with 34 starts in 35 games for the Hoosiers at left tackle.

Indiana senior OT Jason Spriggs' "tools are impressive," observes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Highly athletic with an impressive ability to get to the second level despite challenging angles," Zierlein wrote. "Some scouts will fall in love with his athleticism, but his lack of pop and functional power must be addressed at some point." The scribe grades Spriggs as the No. 10 offensive lineman in the land. Spriggs runs a 4.82 forty, has a vertical of 37.5" and does 33 reps of 225 on the bench.

ESPN's Austin Ward believes Indiana HC Kevin Wilson's hot seat warmed up even more when he kicked S Antonio Allen off the team.

Allen was arrested on drug-dealing charges, not really giving Wilson much of a choice. "It was already clear at that point that Wilson's innovative offensive mind was going to deliver on that side of the ball, and part of the next step was loading up with enough talent to at least take a bit of pressure off his high-scoring attack," Ward wrote. The scribe documented the numerous high-profile defensive recruits Wilson landed who didn't reach graduation, Allen being the most recent. "After suffering another significant blow in the summer, there's no question his job just got even more difficult despite simultaneously doing it the right way," Ward wrote.

Indiana starting junior FS Antonio Allen was arrested on multiple felony drug charges.

The charges include two counts of dealing methamphetamine, two counts of dealing heroin and one count of dealing cocaine. Allen started 12 games in 2014 and led the team in tackles. According to Jeff Rabjohns, Allen is the third Indiana player to be arrested this offseason.

Indiana redshirt freshman Tim Gardner is expected to start at RT.

This allows junior Dimitric Cameil to move to left guard next to senior left tackle Jason Spriggs, according to Brian Rosenthal. Gardner is a transfer from Bowling Green and was forced to sit out his first season with the Hoosiers. Indiana should have a different look on offense after losing Tevin Coleman and gaining a healthy Nate Sudfeld.
Jun 9 - 11:14 AM

Indiana coach Kevin Wilson said during the spring that senior OT Jason Spriggs has as much talent as any college lineman he has coached.

Spriggs has already started 34 games for the Hoosiers and has been the left tackle since his freshman campaign. "Spriggs could be drafted in the first three rounds of the NFL Draft in 2016," noted the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. Wilson reported in March that Spriggs ran a 4.82 forty, had a vertical of 37.5" and did 33 reps of 225 on the bench. Those are tremendous numbers.

NFL Media ranks Indiana HC Kevin Wilson as the No. 4 college football coach on the hot seat.

"IU looked to have some momentum heading into last season, having gone from one win in Wilson's first season to four in his second and five in his third," wrote College Football 24/7 writer Mike Huguenin. "But injuries to his top two quarterbacks devastated the offense, and IU finished 4-8 last season. Conversely, the injuries likely gained him a reprieve from the firing line. IU is not a good program -- the Hoosiers have had only one winning record since 1994 -- but it's still hard to imagine Wilson surviving again if the Hoosiers don't go bowling." Wilson is 14-34 across four seasons. We give him a complete mulligan on last season: An ascending program was forced early to roll with a No. 3 QB who had no business playing that soon. The results were predictable. If star quarterback Nate Sudfeld had remained healthy all season, it's likely that the Hoosiers would have been bowl eligible.

Indiana redshirt sophomore WR Isaac Griffith was arrested for driving while intoxicated this past weekend.

Indiana University Police arrested Griffith on Saturday, and was booked on preliminary charges of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with endangerment, operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated with a blood alcohol content above 0.08, and illegal consumption, according to Indiana University Police Lt. Craig Munroe. The Indiana prospect has had a tough couple of years, as he nearly drowned and was placed in a medically-induced coma in March of 2014, when he was caught in a riptide.
