IU target Roberts visited by Penn State

Bloomington North running back D’Angelo Roberts had the Penn State coaching staff on campus today.

It is the second visit to Bloomington for Penn State, as it recruits North’s record-setting rusher.

Penn State has not offered a scholarship yet.

Roberts recently said IU remains in his top three schools, though he did not say who the other two were. He carried the ball 388 times for 2,604 yards as a junior, including 32 touchdowns. He also caught 12 passes for 299 yards and three scores. He was the Herald-Times Offensive Player of the Year.

He owns every rushing record at North and holds the county game and single-season marks. He should pass the Monroe County rushing record early next season.

Here is Roberts’ season highlight film:

Dickerson named Big Ten Player of the Year

Indiana left fielder Alex Dickerson was named the Big Ten Player of the Year after leading the league in batting average (.415), home runs (23) and RBIs (73). He’s the first Indiana player to win the award since center fielder Kennard Jones in 2002.

Dickerson was joined in the All-Big Ten first team by designated hitter Josh Lyon. First baseman Jerrud Sabourin was named to the second team. Right fielder Michael Earley and second baseman Tyler Rogers were named to the third team. The release follows. (more…)

Scout story on Noreen doesn’t mention IU

At this point, this is probably a foregone conclusion. But people were still asking about Kevin Noreen on the blog today, so I figured I’d post this Q&A with Noreen from Iowa’s scout site.

It’s a subscription story, so some of you will get it and some of you won’t. The gist of it is that the 6-foot-10 forward from Minnesota, who decommitted from Boston College, is still undecided as to his college plans. He will visit Iowa and Iowa State after the dead period ending May 28 and wants to make a decision soon after.

The story lists the visits Noreen has already taken and Indiana is not among them. He was expected to visit May 15-16, and immediately after the Hoosiers’ signing of JUCO center Guy-Marc Michel, Noreen’s father said he still planned on making the visit. It was later reported that the visit had been canceled, however, and even though the Noreen camp never confirmed that he would not be in Bloomington, this story appears to confirm that he did not in fact visit.

Phil Steele names Doss preseason All-Big Ten first team

Tandon Doss’s breakout sophomore season caught the eye of college football preseason magazine guru Phil Steele. Steele named Doss as one of three wide receivers on his preseason All-Big Ten first team along with Purdue’s Keith Smith and Ohio State’s Devier Posey.

Steele gave three other Indiana football players mention on his four All-Big Ten teams. Wide receiver Damarlo Belcher and Darius Willis were both named to the third team. Chris Hagerup was named the fourth-team punter.
