Tight end Peyton Hendershot has been cleared to fully return to team activities, Indiana coach Tom Allen announced Tuesday.

Hendershot, who was suspended by the football program after his February arrest stemming from a domestic incident, entered a plea agreement last month. According to the Bloomington Herald-Times, Hendershot pleaded guilty to misdemeanor criminal trespass, while three other misdemeanor charges — domestic battery, criminal conversion, and criminal mischief — were all dismissed.

Hendershot was sentenced to one year of probation and required to undergo a mental health evaluation and participate in a batterers treatment program, the newspaper reported.

In May, Allen revealed Hendershot had been reinstated “in a modified way.”

“He has completed his team-sanctioned discipline,” Allen said Tuesday. “... He’s completed that. He’s closed his matter with the judicial system, and we have a campus committee that determines if a student-athlete is reinstated to a team and able to be cleared, and that is the case.”

As a sophomore in 2019, Hendershot received third team All-Big Ten honors from the league’s media after setting IU single-season records for a tight end with 52 receptions and 622 yards.
