Indiana boasted an explosive offense last fall, averaging 508.5 yards per game, tied for ninth nationally. Heading into 2014, however, the Hoosiers will be without some key quarterback depth. On Wednesday, head coach Kevin Wilson announced that junior Tre Roberson plans to transfer.
"We appreciate and thank Tre for his contributions to our football program both on and off the field," Wilson said. "He is an outstanding player and a great young man. We wish him well as he moves forward with his career."
"I want to thank the coaching staff, my teammates and Indiana University for all of their support over the last three years," Roberson said. "My time in Bloomington will always hold a special place in my heart. I wish everyone at IU all the best as I move on to the next chapter in my life."
Roberson threw for 1,128 yards with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions last season. He started five games as a freshman in 2011, and he attempted just 50 passes in '12 after breaking his leg. He split time with rising junior Nate Sudfeld (2,523 yards, 21 touchdowns, nine interceptions) in '13.
