Top Five Quarterbacks Indiana Will Play in 2017

Top Five Quarterbacks Indiana Will Play in 2017

Written By Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

As we march through the summer and into fall camp, Hoosier Huddle will look at the top five opposing players or position groups they will face in 2017. Only players and position groups from teams on the 2017 IU Football schedule are considered.

Today, we start with the Top Five Opposing Quarterbacks. The Big Ten has plenty of great quarterbacks returning in 2016 that we will not cover. Players like Clayton Thorson of Northwestern, Tanner Lee of Nebraska, Conner Roda of Minnesota, and Nathan Stanley of Iowa are not on Indiana’s 2017 schedule.

Indiana does play against quarterbacks who are widely considered on every All-Conference list, the conference’s leading passer, and a couple potential Heisman trophy candidates, so the quality of opposing quarterbacks is pretty solid.

Written By T.J. Inman (@T.J.HoosierHuddle)

Tom Allen’s first recruiting class as the head coach of the Indiana Hoosiers is beginning to take shape as the Indiana Hoosiers landed their second commitment of the day and their seventh overall for the 2018 class. For the third time in the past week, the Hoosiers dipped into the Land of Lincoln, this time nabbing well-regarded defensive end Gavin McCabe. The 6-foot-3, 250-pound three-star recruit chose IU over a list of impressive offers including Illinois, Iowa State, Arkansas, West Virginia, Washington State and several others. McCabe is a three-star prospect according to 247 Sports Composite rankings and the 15th best player in Illinois and the second-best defensive end in the state of Illinois and he joins recent commits Matt Bjorson and Nick Marozas as Illinois-natives in the class.

2017 First Glance: Week Five Penn State Nittany Lions

Written By Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

Indiana heads to Happy Valley in week five to face the defending Big Ten Champs, the Penn State Nittany Lions. IU has beaten Penn State just once in their history, a 44-24 win in Bloomington in 2013. The Nittany Lions return the best quarterback-running back combination in the Big Ten, a pretty good tight end as well as some playmakers on defense. This will be Penn State’s homecoming game and they’ll be sporting their retro jerseys. The Big Ten East is really rough, but this may be the toughest game on IU’s schedule in 2017.
