Two Hoosiers are leaving early for the NFL.
Just a few minutes after RB Devine Redding announced he was entering the draft, Indiana LB Marcus Oliver followed suit. The linebacker made 96 tackles during the 2016 campaign and decided to forgo his fourth year of eligibility.
“It was an honor and a privilege to play for and be a part of the Indiana Hoosier family,” he wrote in a message on Twitter.

Oliver (6-foot-1, 240 pounds) made 15.5 tackles for loss in the 2016 season, four of which were sacks. He also had a team-leading five forced fumbles and was an All-Big Ten honorable mention.
