The 6-foot-4, 310-pound guard played 2,719 snaps in 2015 without allowing a sack and has allowed one sack in 37 starts. He was rewarded by earning first-team all-Big Ten and a third team All-American selection last season.
The announcement comes two days after Indiana hired Tom Allen as its new defensive coordinator. Allen held the same position at South Florida last season and has 24 years of coaching experience.
He replaces Brian Knorr, whom coach Kevin Wilson said will not return in 2016.
