Former IU QB Peyton Ramsey grad transferring to Northwestern
Former Indiana quarterback Peyton Ramsey will be finishing his college career in the B1G.
On Monday, Ramsey announced via Twitter that he will be graduate transferring to Northwestern for the 2020 season. The ex-Hoosier will be immediately eligible for this season.
Ramsey has one year of eligibility remaining.
Ramsey was the starter for the Hoosiers in 2017 and 2018, providing a consistent dual-threat option in Indiana’s offense. Though he brought plenty of experience to the field, he missed out on the starting job in 2019, losing the job to Michael Penix Jr.
Despite not winning the starting job, Ramsey opted to stay in Bloomington last season to continue his career in a crimson and cream uniform. And when Penix suffered a season-ending injury, Ramsey stepped in to help lead IU to a bowl game.
Last season, Ramsey threw for 2,454 yards and 13 touchdowns while completing passes at a 66 percent clip. He also rushed for seven touchdowns.
Indiana finished the year 8-5 and played in the Gator Bowl.
Ramsey will provide immediate depth for the Wildcats, which owned the worst passing offense in the B1G last season. His dual-threat ability will be a huge asset for Northwestern.
