The 2015 offseason has been less than terrific off the field for the Indiana Hoosiers football team. While the off-court issues for the basketball team has over shadowed the football news, the folks on the gridiron are compiling their own police record. As reported first by Mike Miller of the Bloomington Herald Times, Indiana wide receiver Isaac Griffith was arrested on suspicion of “operating a vehicle while intoxicated and endangerment” in the wee hours of Saturday morning.Read More
With summer camps just on the horizon the Hoosiers coaching staff continued to target prospects outside of the midwest, as these athletes are less likely to make it to Bloomington in the coming weeks. Once again it looks like the Hoosiers have prioritized the defensive side of the ball, extending offers to players at all three levels. The team is also making an effort to create inroads with the upcoming classes of 2017 and '18. Former 2013 wide receiver commit Taj Williams announced that he would be making a trip to Hoosier Nation this summer, giving Indiana hope that they can get this talented pass catcher to Bloomington.

The Hoosiers will see the graduation of two tight ends at the end of this coming season, Anthony Corsaro and Michael Cooper. As such, the Hoosiers will be looking to add at least one tight end in the 2016 class. Their options at the spot include a very diverse group of athletes, some of which will have to grow into the position, like Albert Okwuegbunam and while others might grow out of the position and land on the offensive line, for example Drew Schoeberl and Demar Holmes. Additionally, some of the prospects have spent a majority of their time at another position but still project as a tight end at the collegiate level. For instance, much like the Hoosiers' 2015 tight end commit Austin Dorris, Jay Rose also plays quarterback and has put up some pretty impressive stats in the process. Another player that could have been included on our list but instead wound up on our wide receiver big board was Homestead's Ben Skowronek.Read More

-Ohio State Buckeyes-
Urban Meyer needed an emergency appendectomy. The Buckeyes head coach was released from the hospital after an uneventful and successful procedure.
Despite continued speculation about OSU QB Braxton Miller transferring, Urban Meyer is confident that the veteran will return for his Senior season. Meyer told Dan Patrick that he asked Braxton Miller about transferring and Miller told him, “absolutely not”. Meyer continued, “I would say Braxton is staying, all indications I’m getting…he seems to be extremely happy and excited for 2015 as a Buckeye.”
It was another incredibly busy week in recruiting as the Hoosiers extended offers to multiple members of the 2016 class and even a couple of 2017 and 2018 prospects. The majority of Indiana's new offer recepients were on the defensive side of the ball, specifically on the line and the secondary, an area of emphasis during this recruiting cycle. They were once again very active in the south, specifically in Georgia and Florida. Click for those corresponding tweets and more.Read More

In our third Prospects Big Board we will take a look at wide receivers. The Hoosiers added five pass catchers in this last class and enter next season with zero scholarship seniors at the position, so it remains to be seen how many they might look to add in this upcoming cycle. Much like running back, the Hoosiers can leverage the fact that the team has been able to get players at the position in the NFL, like Denver's Cody Latimer. So which potential route-runners could decide that Bloomington is the best place for them to continue their playing careers?Read More
