Coleman makes USA Today’s All-American 1st Team

He’s not going to New York as a Heisman Trophy finalist, but Indiana’s Tevin Coleman received additional national recognition on Thursday.

USA Today selected the junior running back to its All-American First Team, where he’s joined by Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon and three other Big Ten players. Coleman rushed for 2,036 yards and 169.7 yards per contest — both of which were second nationally to Gordon. Iowa offensive lineman Brandon Scherff, Michigan State offensive lineman Jack Allen and Ohio State defensive lineman Joey Bosa were also selected to the first team.

Coleman is currently in Orlando, Fla. at the Walt Disney World Resort as a finalist for the Doak Walker Award. The winner will be announced tonight on the Home Depot College Football Awards show on ESPN beginning at 7 p.m.

Former UAB receiver Hawkins headed to IU

It all happened so fast — both the shuttering of Alabama-Birmingham’s football program and the scramble to find a new home.

Former three-star receiver Marqui Hawkins found the latter in Bloomington.

Hawkins announced Wednesday that he will transfer to Indiana, filling a need for more skill players in a young receiving corps. Hawkins sat out this past season after transferring from Florida in April. He’ll have three years of eligibility remaining and will be available immediately.

“It’s a great campus and the coaches treated me well,” Hawkins said of his visit to IU last weekend. “The players treated me well (and) I just loved everything.”

Hawkins, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound native of Columbus, Ga., was considered the No. 25 receiver in the nation in 2013. Former high school teammate Kiante Walton hosted Hawkins on his visit.

He was joined on the visit by UAB teammate Jordan Howard, who finished his sophomore season ranked No. 7 in the nation with 132.3 rushing yards per game. Although Hawkins said he and Howard aren’t necessarily a package deal, Howard would be the logical heir to IU running back Tevin Coleman should he enter the NFL Draft. NFL.com reported Wednesday night that Coleman is expected to make a decision on his future in the next week.

“If I come, it doesn’t mean he’s gonna come,” Hawkins said. “He’s got a couple more visits to make before he makes a decision.”

UAB went 6-6 this season, but was not invited to a bowl game after announcing last week that it was terminating its football program due to increased costs.

Given the turbulence of the situation, Hawkins seemed happy to have a new place to play.

“It’s been bad down here,” he said. “It’s shocking that our program was shut down. We came to practice and at the end of the day it was gone. It was crazy. It was heartbreaking that they took our program away from us knowing we had a bowl game coming up. Now we gotta scramble to find places to play at.”

In other IU football recruiting news, former four-star Clemson quarterback Chad Kelly tweeted Wednesday that he was transferring from a Mississippi junior college to Ole Miss. Kelly visited Bloomington for the Nov. 29 game against Indiana.
