Tre Roberson to Transfer

We'll miss you, Tre. - Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

IU is losing one of its two potential starters at quarterback for the fall.

Perhaps the transfer epidemic in Bloomington extends beyond basketball.

Quarterback Tre Roberson, who started five games for the Hoosiers in 2011 and four games last year, is leaving the program, according to head coach Kevin Wilson. Roberson showed promise as a true freshman in 2011, but didn't play for most of 2012 due to suffering a broken leg against UMass early in the season. Last season, however, Roberson broke out, throwing for 1,128 yards and 15 touchdowns, while rushing for five more scores and 423 yards. Roberson split time as the starter with Nate Sudfeld, and often was used last year in short-yardage or goal-line situations, or as a change of pace if the offense wasn't clicking with Sudfeld.

What does this mean for the Hoosiers? Well, it essentially solves the potential QB controversy that I alluded to in the team's spring preview a couple months ago. This makes Sudfeld the true starting QB for the Hoosiers come late August. However, IU now has lost a great playmaker and is now down to only two scholarship QBs next season until Tommy Stevens joins the team in 2015.

Roberson made the news official on his twitter account this afternoon:
