Indiana Offer 'Surreal' For Ohio LB Jeslord Boateng

Written by Bobby Kunz (@BobbyMKunz)

The Midwest is going to be a huge priority for the new coaching staff at Indiana, and the Hoosiers just offered an underrated linebacker from Ohio. 

The offer goes to 2018 Dublin, Ohio linebacker Jeslord Boateng. Boateng just picked up an offer from the Hoosiers and already sees Indiana as a school that sticks out in his recruitment. 247Sports has him ranked as a three-star prospect and the 31st best player in Ohio. The 6-2, 200 pound linebacker holds offers from Iowa State, Cincinnati, Kentucky and more.

2017 Spring Practice Preview: Special Teams

2017 Spring Practice Preview: Special Teams

Written By Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

A renewed emphasis will be put on the importance of special teams in 2017, when the Hoosiers start spring Practice on March 4th. The special teams unit was one of the Hoosiers’ bugaboos in 2016 that kept them from taking the next step up from a second consecutive 6-7 season. The Hoosiers struggled in all facets of the forgotten phase of the game. Griffin Oakes was sub-par the on both field goals and kick-offs, Joseph Gedeon wasn’t the difference maker at punter that he may have looked like against FIU, and the return game (both punt and kick) was non-existent.  This spring may serve as a wake-up call for any player that thinks their jobs on a special teams unit is safe.

2017 Spring Practice Preview: Linebackers

2017 Spring Practice Preview: Linebackers


Written by: TJ Inman (@TJHoosierHuddle)

Hoosier Huddle is getting ready for the first spring practice of the Tom Allen era by previewing each position. Today’s focus is on a position headlined by a returning All-American. Arguably the best player on the squad, Tegray Scales will lead this defense from the middle. He’s surrounded by a group of players hungry to step up and replace the production of the departed Marcus Oliver. 

IU drastically improved in their first year under defensive coordinator Tom Allen. Allen is now the head coach and the Hoosiers return the majority of their 2016 defensive production. For the first time in a very long time, there are legitimate expectations surrounding IU’s defense. The play of All-American Tegray Scales is a big reason why. The other linebackers will have a fierce battle throughout spring practice to begin determining who will play beside the senior leader.

2017 Spring Practice Preview: Tight Ends

2017 Spring Practice Preview: Tight Ends

Written By Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

The tight ends at Indiana caught 10 total passes and their usage, or lack there of, drove Hoosier fans insane. The good news is that Tom Allen brought in Mike DeBord whose tight ends caught a combined 45 passes at Tennessee last season. The talent at the position is not the problem. IU will have five good ones entering spring practice and another joining the squad when the freshmen arrive on campus. Could this deep, but under utilized group be the answer to some of IU’s offensive woes that flared in 2016?
