Indiana has added a veteran defender via transfer, reaching into the Ole Miss team that beat the Hoosiers to grab the commitment of a defensive lineman.

The announcement came Friday as Ryder Anderson, a four-year player for the Rebels, committed to Tom Allen and the Hoosiers for 2021. In his announcement on Twitter, Anderson indicated he will spend his final year of eligibility at Indiana:

Anderson definitely brings valuable experience to the Indiana defense and strengthens the outlook for a program looking to climb to even greater heights after a historic two-year stretch in Bloomington.

Along with the addition of Anderson, the Hoosiers are getting back a number of seniors due to the blanket waiver by the NCAA. The offense also received a boost with the news that star receiver Ty Fryfogle will return in 2021.

During his time at Ole Miss, Anderson posted 98 total tackles, 15 TFL, and seven sacks. In the game against the Hoosiers, Anderson had three tackles, two TFL, and a sack for the win in the Outback Bowl.
