East Mississippi Community College quarterback Chad Kelly will visit Bloomington this weekend for the IU-Purdue game, he told The Herald-Times on Monday.
Kelly, a four-star recruit who most recently attended Clemson, has thrown for 3,472 yards and 42 touchdowns against eight interceptions this season.
The nephew of hall of fame quarterback Jim Kelly, he has also received recent interest from Virginia Tech and Louisiana State. Alex McCarthy of 247 Sports reported last week that IU coach Kevin Wilson visited Kelly in Mississippi on Thursday.
Kelly was dismissed from the Clemson program in April for what coach Dabo Swinney called conduct detrimental to the team. The Niagra Falls, N.Y. native redshirted the 2012 season and tore his ACL in Clemson’s 2013 spring game. Kelly has since apologized for his behavior at Clemson. He is the top-ranked junior college quarterback, according to 247 Sports.
A perfect start to the season and a win over then-No. 22 Southern Methodist wasn’t enough to get Indiana into the top 25 this week, but the Hoosiers are receiving votes.
IU picked up six votes in the Associated Press top 25 and five in the USA Today Coaches poll.
Indiana guard James Blackmon Jr. earned Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors, the conference announced Monday.
Blackmon shot a combined 54 percent (20-for-37) from the field, including a 13-for-21 mark from 3-point range, while averaging 22 points and six rebound over a three-game stretch. He scored 19 points and added five rebounds against Texas Southern on Monday before leading IU with 26 points in a win over No. 22 Southern Methodist on Thursday. Blackmon finished the week with 21 points and six rebounds against Lamar on Saturday.
The last IU freshman to earn the honor was Troy Williams on March 10.
For the second week in a row, Indiana guard Tyra Buss was honored as freshman of the week by the Big Ten conference.
This week, she shared the honor with Illinois’ Chatrice White, but this makes Buss the first IU player to win the award in back-to-back weeks. Buss is the second Hoosier to earn the honor twice in the same year, doing so in the first two weeks of the season. Sophomore guard Larryn Brooks was named freshman of the week twice all of last year.
In three games last week, Buss averaged 18.3 points, 4.0 steals, 4.7 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game, shooting 55.6 percent (20-of-36) from the field. Against Valparaiso, Buss broke an IU freshman record with eight steals, which is tied for fourth in IU women’s basketball history among all players. She also had a game-high 22 points in that game.
In the Hoosiers win versus Morehead State, Buss rounded out her stat line with 16 point, six rebounds, five assists and a steal and went 3-of-5 from 3-point range. Just yesterday against Incarnate Word, Buss scored 17 points and shot 5-of-9 from the field with three steals, four boards and two assists.
For the season, the Mt. Carmel, Ill., product leads Indiana in scoring (18.3 ppg) and steals (4.8 spg) through four games.

3. ONE FOR THE ROAD
In honor of Sunday’s soggy soccer game, Jane’s Addicition with “Splash a Little Water On It.”
Indiana (4-0) beat Incarnate Word 85-49, but head coach Teri Moren said after the game that she felt the Hoosiers took a step back.
Shooting 48 percent from the field, Indiana was not always efficient offensively, turning the ball over 16 times and shooting 6-of-22 from behind the arc. Incarnate Word (2-2) shot 35 percent from the field and hit 3-of-14 shots from 3-point distance.
The Hoosiers did have five players in double figures, including Jenn Anderson with a team-high 21 points on 8-of-11 shooting. Tyra Buss added 17 points and three steals for the Hoosiers. Amanda Cahill produced a double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds.
