Everyone’s back on campus, classes have started — it’s time for an updated roster #iubb

The last of Indiana’s 2016 recruits arrived on Sunday. Classes on the Bloomington campus began Monday.

As Alex Bozich of Inside The Hall points out, IU’s sophomores made some serious gains in the weight room during the off-season. Juwan Morgan has gone from 205 pounds to 230 pounds, O.G. Anunoby went from 215 pounds to 235, Thomas Bryant gained 10 pounds and is now listed at 255.

Johns likes what he sees from Lagow #iufb

Size and skill are only part of the equation that makes Richard Lagow the frontrunner to win Indiana’s open starting quarterback job.

His ongoing development from spring practice to the edge of the season’s start is another encouraging sign in his favor.

Although coach Kevin Wilson has not officially named Lagow Indiana’s top quarterback — and he isn’t likely to update the competition until Friday, at the earliest — all signs point to the junior college transfer as Indiana’s guy behind center first on Sept. 1 at Florida International.

Last week, Wilson said Lagow was receiving the bulk of the work at quarterback, and from his view, offensive coordinator Kevin Johns says he’s been encouraged with Lagow’s performance this month.

The next step in the developmental process for the 6-foot-6, 240-pound Texan is getting him the on-field experience that he needs.

“He’s playing with more confidence,” Johns said. “There are always things to work on, and I think for him it’s just going to be some game experience. I think he’s gonna learn just a ton in this first game, and he’s gonna take that and continue to grow from week to week this season.” (more…)
