Quarterback Tre Roberson plans to transfer from Indiana, football coach Kevin Wilson announced Wednesday on the university’s website.
“We appreciate and thank Tre for his contributions to our football program both on and off the field,” Wilson said in a release. “He is an outstanding player and a great young man. We wish him well as he moves forward with his career.”
Roberson became the first true freshman to start at quarterback for IU in 2011. He started five of the nine games he played in that season, throwing for 937 yards and rushing for 426 yards.
Roberson, who broke his leg in the second game of 2012, started four of the 12 games he played in last year, throwing for 1,128 yards with 15 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also ran for 423 yards with five touchdowns last season.
“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.”
IU will return Nate Sudfeld from last season. The junior threw for 2,523 yards with 21 touchdowns and nine interceptions, starting in eight of the 12 games he played in as a sophomore.
