Dawkins, Gardner part ways with Indiana #iufb

According to a press release from Indiana University, a pair of Hoosiers are no longer part of Kevin Wilson’s program.

Redshirt sophomore defensive back Will Dawkins and redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Tim Gardner have left the Hoosiers.

“We thank Will and Tim for their contributions,” Wilson said in the release. “They are leaving IU in good academic standing and we wish them the very best moving forward.”

Dawkins, a native of Vero Beach, Fla., redshirted in 2014, then appeared in nine games for the Hoosiers in 2015 with 12 unassisted tackles and five assisted tackles to go with one kickoff return.

Gardner, from Indianapolis, sat out the 2014 season after transferring from Ohio State, then appeared in 11 games as a redshirt freshman in 2015.


Ben Davis DT LeShaun Minor headed to Indiana #iufb

The Indiana University football team picked up its second 2017 commitment in as many days on Monday, as defensive lineman LeShaun Minor from Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis tweeted his pledge to the Hoosiers.

Minor is listed as a 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive tackle, but can play both inside and outside on the line. He is a three-star prospect according to both 247 Sports and Rivals, who collected 61 tackles (13 for loss), three sacks, two forced fumbles, an interception for a touchdown and six batted passes as a junior at Ben Davis. He counted Ball State, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa State among his other offers.

This is the third in-state 2017 recruit for head coach Kevin Wilson’s Hoosiers, as Minor joins Avon defensive back Bryant Fitzgerald and Carmel defensive end Britt Beery.

Motivated Florida DE Tramar Reece commits to Hoosiers #iufb

A lot has changed in the last nine months for Tramar Reece, and the 6-foot-3 defensive end from Clearwater, Fla., capped off those changes on Sunday when he tweeted a commitment to play college football at Indiana University.

The Hoosiers were among other power conference schools such as Duke, Purdue, Iowa State and Louisville to offer Reece, whose recruitment took off this offseason to include 18 total offers.

Playing at just 186 pounds last fall, he still collected 31 tackles, 4.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries en route to earning second team All-Pinellas County honors from the Tampa Tribune as a junior at Clearwater High School, the alma mater of IU offensive line coach Greg Frey.

“The main reason (he was 186 pounds) is he wasn’t the hardest worker in weight room,” Clearwater coach Don Mesick told the Herald-Times by phone late Sunday night. “A lot of that was he loved basketball and thought he’d play college basketball, so he was not as committed. But now that football is his ticket, he’s committed and put on almost 20 pounds from last season. He’s really turned it around as far as work in weight room goes.”

But all of that has its roots in the tragedy that struck on Oct. 29, 2015. Reece’s mother, Tracey, died of a sudden heart attack at her desk, leaving not only Reece, but the entire Clearwater football team in shock.
