Another former Indiana football player is transferring to Purdue.

On Christmas Eve, former Indiana defensive back Reese Taylor announced his commitment to Purdue. He entered the transfer portal after a 2-10 campaign in 2021 for the Hoosiers. He’s the third IU player to transfer to the Boilermakers over the past year.

Former Indiana running back Sampson James and defensive lineman Damarjhe Lewis also left Bloomington for West Lafayette. Taylor made his announcement with a post on Twitter.

Taylor spent 4 years at Indiana. This past season, he appeared in 9 games and made 4 starts. He made 25 tackles, including 3 for loss and broke up 2 passes.

Over the course of his 4 seasons in Bloomington, Taylor played in 40 career contests. He piled up 74 tackles, 8 for loss, 13 pass break-ups and 2 interceptions. His most productive year came in 2020, when Taylor totaled 29 stops and 8 pass break-ups.

Indiana ended the season with a 6-2 record. The Hoosiers notched marquee wins over Penn State, Michigan and Wisconsin that season and punched a ticket to the Outback Bowl.

Taylor brings plenty of experience with him to West Lafayette. He’ll have an opportunity to compete for a starting job immediately.

Purdue ended the 2021 season with an 8-4 record, which included wins over Iowa and Michigan State. The Boilers are headed to the Music City Bowl, where they’ll play Tennessee on Dec. 30.
