Defensive lineman Tramar Reece is reportedly looking for a new home. The redshirt junior has entered the NCAA transfer portal after four seasons in Bloomington, according to Zach Osterman of the Indianapolis Star.

Reece played sparingly during his time at Indiana, providing depth at defensive end. He made one tackle in IU’s win at Wisconsin last month, and also logged a solo stop in Saturday’s Outback Bowl loss to Ole Miss. At the time of his commitment in June 2016, Reece had power conference offers from Purdue, Iowa State, Louisville and Duke, among others. He attended the same high school — Clearwater (Fla.) High — as former IU offensive line coach Greg Frey.

Reece is the second Hoosier to enter the transfer portal after receiver Rashawn Williams announced his intention to leave IU last month.

IU women ranked 19th

Indiana moved up one spot in the latest Associated Press Top 25, appearing at No. 19 in Monday’s poll.

The Hoosiers made their move after a 23-point drubbing of Illinois on New Year’s Eve at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.

Maryland — Monday night’s opponent — is the highest-ranked Big Ten team at No. 12. Michigan is No. 15, Ohio State is No. 16, Northwestern is No. 22 and Michigan State is No. 23.

IU debuts at No. 51 in NET rankings

The NCAA released its first round of NET rankings on Monday, and Indiana found itself at No. 51.

Too low? Too high? Who can say! Either way, it’s probably best to not spend too much time thinking through these things right now. Colgate, for example, is slotted at No. 16 after its 1-1 start. So, yeah.

Indiana is 0-3 in Quad 1 games, 3-1 in Quad 2 games, 1-0 in its lone Quad 3 game, and 2-0 in Quad 4 games. The full Big Ten view is as follows:

  • No. 4 Illinois
  • No. 6 Michigan
  • No. 7 Iowa
  • No. 11 Wisconsin
  • No. 17 Rutgers
  • No. 28 Ohio State
  • No. 32 Maryland
  • No. 42 Penn State
  • No. 43 Minnesota
  • No. 47 Purdue
  • No. 50 Northwestern
  • No. 51 Indiana
  • No. 119 Michigan State
  • No. 186 Nebraska
