Cobbs has been Indiana’s top receiver in two of the last three seasons. This fall, he had 72 receptions for 841 yards and eight touchdowns. In 2015, the talented receiver had 1,035 yards and four touchdowns on 60 catches.
He missed the 2016 season due to injury.
Cobbs has been one of the top receivers in the B1G during his career and did some of his best work outside the numbers. He made several improbable grabs throughout his career and developed into one of the more promising receivers in Indiana’s history.
After three seasons in Bloomington, Cobbs will leave the program with 1,990 yards and 12 touchdowns on 139 catches.
