The Indiana Hoosiers football program will be down a quarterback going forward as head coach Kevin Wilson announced on Wednesday that Tre Roberson has opted to transfer out of the program.
“We appreciate and thank Tre for his contributions to our football program both on and off the field,” Wilson said. “He is an outstanding player and a great young man. We wish him well as he moves forward with his career.”
Back during the 2011 season, Roberson became the first true freshman quarterback to start for the Hoosiers, appearing in nine games overall, starting five of them, all while showing off his dual-threat capabilities by tossing for over 900 yards and rushing for over 400.
Unfortunately, he suffered a broken leg early on in the 2012 season, but he did come back to start a few games in the 2013 campaign.
Also in the release from the school, Roberson released a brief statement about his departure, thanking those that helped him during his time at Indiana.
“I want to thank the coaching staff, my teammates and Indiana University for all of their support over the last three years,” Roberson said. “My time in Bloomington will always hold a special place in my heart. I wish everyone at IU all the best as I move on to the next chapter in my life.”
