One of Indiana’s top players will be back in 2017.
Linebacker Tegray Scales, who was named a second-team All-American by Sports Illustrated in 2016, announced his decision to return to the Hoosiers on Monday morning. Scales was the Big Ten’s leading tackler in 2016, his junior season.
“I’d like to thank Coach (Tom) Allen for what he brought to this defense and now the whole team. I’m excited to play for him one more year,” Scales said in a video the Hoosiers posted on Twitter.
