Indiana adds commitment from linebacker transfer out of Stanford
Indiana football dipped into the transfer portal and added a commitment from former Stanford linebacker Jacob Mangum-Farrar Saturday.
Mangum-Farrar started 8 games for the Cardinal last season, totaling 45 tackles, 1 forced fumble and 3 pass deflections. This is a step forward in replacing star rising sophomore LB Dasan McCullough, who transferred to Oklahoma after 1 season in Bloomington. Indiana also lost linebackers Cam Jones and Bradley Jennings to eligibility following a 4-8 season.
Mangum-Farrar announced his commitment to Indiana on Instagram.

Mangum-Farrar will have 1 season of eligibility remaining for the Hoosiers. He missed the 2020 season at Stanford following a 2019 injury suffered against USC.
The former 4-star prospect is likely to make an immediate impact with the Hoosiers next season.
