Hoosier QB Tre Roberson transferring
Indiana head football coach Kevin Wilson announced Wednesday afternoon that junior quarterback Tre Roberson would not return to the Hoosiers program in 2014, planning 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 became the first Indiana true freshman to start at quarterback in 2011. He started five games, played in nine overall, threw for 937 yards and rushed for 426 yards.
After suffering a broken leg in the second game of 2012, Roberson bounced back with four starts and 12 appearances last season. He completed 83-of-138 (60.1 percent) for 1,128 yards with 15 touchdowns, four interceptions and a 158.9 pass efficiency rating. Roberson added 423 rushing yards on 85 attempts (5.0 average) with five TDs.
