Indiana WR, member of 2019 recruiting class, announces entry into transfer portal
One member of Indiana’s football team is looking to leave via the transfer portal.
On Saturday, Jordan Jakes revealed his intentions to enter the portal and leave the program. In his note on Twitter, Jakes thanked head coach Tom Allen and mentioned being apart of the “historical memories” for the Hoosiers over the past two seasons before announcing his entry into the portal.
Here is Jakes’ note:

Jakes was a three-star recruit coming out of high school. Listed at 6-foot-5, Jakes was an intriguing recruit with the kind of size to be a deep threat.
Out of high school, Jakes had offers from Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Iowa State, and FIU, among others. He redshirted in 2019 and did not record a catch in 2020.
A lot of news has come out of Indiana’s wide receiver room over the past few days. There was the very good news for the Hoosiers that star receiver Ty Fryfogle will be back in Bloomington for 2021. On the flip side, Whop Philyor has announced that he will forego the 2021 season and enter the NFL Draft.
