Indiana loses defensive back to transfer portal
On a day when schools are welcoming in new recruits, Indiana is losing a defensive back.
247Sports is reporting that Indiana super senior Juwan Burgess has entered his name into the NCAA transfer portal. He started his career in Bloomington in 2017 and spent five seasons with the Hoosiers. He will have one year of eligibility to use at his next destination.
Burgess’ player profile is no longer available on Indiana’s football website.
In 2017, Burgess was a huge addition to the Indiana recruiting class. He was originally committed to USC but flipped to the Hoosiers when Tom Allen was named the head coach.
During his career with the Hoosiers, Burgess piled up 76 tackles, including 5 for loss. He also broke up 3 passes, recovered 3 fumbles and forced 2 fumbles.
Burgess makes the decision after Indiana finished the 2021 season with a 2-10 record and went winless in the B1G. The Hoosiers also made a change at defensive coordinator, hiring Chad Wilt from Minnesota after Charlton Warren left for North Carolina.
