This Week in Indiana Hoosier News:

The NFL Draft:

Indiana Football goes without an NFL draft pick for the second consecutive year. The last time the Hoosiers went without a draft pick was 2012-13. However, Aaron Casey and Andre Carter did sign UDFA contracts. Two Indiana transfers, Michael Penix and AJ Barner, were both drafted. Penix was the eighth overall pick, and Barner went in the fourth round.

Football Recruiting:

After the spring game, the Hoosiers lost five players in the transfer portal, including running back David Holloman and linemen Bubba Jeffries and Will Larkins. No one they lost played much last year, and it should not be a considerable loss. Head coach Curt Cignetti would like to add some depth at defensive back before the portal closes at the end of this month.

Indiana signed four-star cornerback Chris McCorkle III to their 2025 class. He's the highest-rated signee of the class. The Cardinal Mooney High School product had offers from Florida State, Florida, and instate rival Purdue.

Moren and IU Women's Basketball busy in the portal:

Indiana women's basketball needed to fill holes left by Mackenzie Holmes and Sara Scalia. Moren and her staff signed Tennessee transfer forward Karoline Stripling and Penn State guard Shay Ciezki. Stripling gives the Hoosiers depth in the low post alongside Lily Meister and Sharnecce Curry-Jelks, who is returning from injury.

Ciezki gives the Hoosiers a shooter who is also a reliable secondary ball-handler. The Penn State transfer shot nearly 40 percent from the three-point line.
