Cody Latimer one of 30 prospects invited to NFL Draft

By   |   Tuesday, Apr. 22, 2014 - 7:57 PM   |   1 comment

Indiana wide receiver Cody Latimer will be one of 30 draft prospects to attend the draft in New York City, the NFL announced on Tuesday night. 

The second-team All-Big Ten wide receiver has seen his draft stock skyrocket since he ran a 4.38 40-yard dash at Indiana’s Pro Day in late March. He had received a third-round grade from the NFL Draft Advisory Committee when he declared for the draft, but has been projected by several NFL Draft experts to creep into the first round. He could be one of the first wide receivers taken after Clemson’s Sammy Watkins and Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, widely considered the top two prospects at that position.

Latimer is one of seven receivers who will be at the draft, including Watkins, Evans, LSU’s Odell Beckham, Brandin Cooks of Oregon State, Jordan Matthews of Vanderbilt and Marqise Lee of Southern California.

Jeremy Hollowell transfers to Georgia State

By   |   Tuesday, Apr. 22, 2014 - 3:47 PM   |   1 comment

Jeremy Hollowell is getting out of Indiana, but leaving to play for another Indianapolis transplant and his son.

The former Indiana forward committed to Georgia State on Tuesday after requesting his release from IU in March. At GSU, he will play for Ron Hunter, who spent 17 years as the head coach at IUPUI before taking the head coaching job with the Panthers for the 2011-12 season. His son R.J. starred at Pike before following his dad to the Atlanta school, and he was a close friend and elementary school AAU teammate of Hollowell’s.

This year, R.J. Hunter was the Sun Belt’s Player of the Year and Ron Hunter was the league’s Coach of the Year. The Panthers won the regular season conference title with a 17-1 league record, but fell to Louisiana Lafayette in the conference tournament title game and Clemson in the first round of the NIT.

Hollowell will have to sit out a season because of NCAA transfer rules and will become eligible for the 2015-16 season. He will have two years of eligibility remaining.

The scheduling of Florida International, cancelling of South Florida series reflects adjustment in approach

By   |   Monday, Apr. 21, 2014 - 8:12 PM   |   21 comments

After Indiana finished last season 5-7 and missed the postseason for the sixth consecutive season, coach Kevin Wilson effectively declared an offseason of introspection in which he would reconsider all aspects of the IU football program’s operation. That led several significant changes, including the firing of defensive coordinator Doug Mallory and the hiring of his replacement, Brian Knorr.

While Wilson was doing that, IU athletic director Fred Glass was doing some introspection as well with his own performance in regard to the football program. In hindsight, he decided that the Hoosiers were overtaxed by a non-conference schedule made up of three bowl teams in four games, including a Missouri team that finished the season ranked No. 5 in the nation with a win in the Cotton Bowl. The NCAA rated Indiana’s total strength of schedule the 11th most difficult in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

“If I could’ve waved a magic wand and changed our schedule, I probably would have,” Glass said. “I thought we overscheduled a little in our non-conference schedule. This offseason, everyone in the program was looking in the mirror and thinking about what we have to do to get better. I thought that I have to get better, too, and there were things that I can do from a scheduling perspective to help.”
