Tegray Scales will be back for one more year.

Scales, an outside linebacker from Cincinnati, announced his decision today.

Scales has been making plays for the Indiana football defense since his freshman season. He was a key part of Indiana’s defensive renaissance under defensive coordinator Tom Allen, who has now taken over as head coach. During his junior year, Scales was named all-Big Ten second team and was also named a second-team All-American by Sports Illustrated. He has 92 tackles last season, including 10 against Utah in the Foster Farms Bowl. He also had a pick-six in the season-opener against FIU, and had 7 sacks on the season.

Scales was turning into a leader on the defense this season, and anchored Allen’s 4-2-5 defensive unit that finished 31st in defensive S&P+ rankings.
