Jason Knight, former Broad Ripple forward Robert Goff’s advisor and former AAU coach, confirmed a Scout.com report that the Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College sophomore has verbally committed to Oklahoma over a scholarship offer from Indiana among others.
Knight said Goff committed to Oklahoma on Sunday evening. He had taken an official visit there on Sept. 11 for the Florida State-Oklahoma game and had taken an official visit to Wichita State this past weekend. Goff had taken an unofficial visit to Indiana this summer and was scheduled to take another visit to Bloomington on Oct. 2, but decided he was comfortable making the decision.
“He’s very familiar with the program,” Knight said. “He’s been there before unofficially. He took the official a few weeks ago, and in the end, the biggest factor was that he was really comfortable with the school and especially the coaching staff and coach (Jeff) Capel. I think he feels that this gives him the best opportunity to reach the goals he has.” (more…)
Indiana’s home game against Michigan will be played at 3:30 p.m. and televised on ESPNU, the Big Ten announced on Monday.
Indiana senior quarterback Ben Chappell was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week after throwing for 366 yards and three touchdowns and rushing for another in the Hoosiers’ 38-21 win over Western Kentucky on Saturday.
Robert Goff has verbally committed to Oklahoma, Scout.com’s Evan Daniels is reporting.
Goff, a 6-foot-9 JUCO forward, had been made a priority for the Indiana staff, with Tom Crean and Steve McClain visiting him on the first day of the fall open period.
He had said he would be taking a visit to Indiana, but apparently found what he was looking for in Oklahoma.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. — After fumbling in the red zone on the first offensive drive, then allowing a 91-yard scoring march on the subsequent Western Kentucky possession, Indiana scored 31 straight points to roll to a 38-21 victory over Western Kentucky at Houchens Industtries-L.T. Smith Field.
After giving up 91 yards on that first drive, the Hoosiers allowed 62 yards in the next two quarters. Western Kentucky running back Bobby Rainey rushed for 105 yards, but only 40 of those came after the first quarter.
Indiana had a hard time running the ball as well, but the Hoosiers were stellar in the passing game. Senior quarterback Ben Chappell completed 32 of 42 passes for 366 yards — a career high and the sixth highest total in IU history and three touchdowns. He also rushed for a touchdown. Junior wide receiver Damarlo Belcher had career highs in receptions with 10 and yards with 135 and grabbed one of those touchdown passes. Senior receiver Terrance Turner had a career high eight receptions for 55 yards and junior Tandon Doss had five receptions for 62 yards and a touchdown in his return to the field after missing the season opener against Towson with a groin injury.
Redshirt freshman tight end Ted Bolser also made a brilliant touchdown catch in the back of the end zone and redshirt freshman Nick Turner took a reverse handoff for a 24-yard touchdown, his first as a collegian.
