Indiana will be without two key returning players this upcoming season.
In a press release, the program announced that sophomore wide receiver J-Shun Harris will redshirt and miss the season after suffering an ACL injury, while fifth-year senior Kenny Mullen, who graduated this past spring, will forego his final year of eligibility.
Another fifth-year senior will also not be with the program this fall, as right tackle Ralston Evans was granted a medical hardship which ends his career. According to the Bloomington Herald Times' Mike Miller, a leg press accident in 2011 caused damage to major ligaments after he locked his leg on the machine.
“Injuries ended Ralston’s final two seasons and limited him this spring. He was a great player and is an even better man," Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson said in the release. "Fortunately, Ralston will serve as a student coach this year. His leadership will continue to be invaluable to our team.”
In other roster update news, freshman defensive lineman Nick Carovillano, redshirt freshman wide receiver Coray Keel and junior cornerback Laray Smith have left the program. Inside Indiana's Alex McCarthy reported that Smith is transferring to Delaware State, where he will return to his original position of running back. And lastly, incoming freshman athlete Donavan Clark has qualified and will join the team for preseason camp.
“Nick, Coray and Laray leave IU in good academic standing,” Wilson said. “We wish them the best moving forward.”
