Hoosiers add former Ole Miss defensive end

It’s been a good Friday for Tom Allen

As the adage goes: After you beat ‘em, join ‘em.

That, at least, is what former Ole Miss defensive end Ryder Anderson is doing, announcing on Friday night that he is transferring to Indiana. Anderson’s decision comes less than a week after he recorded three total tackles, two tackles for loss, one sack and one quarterback hurry in the Rebels’ Outback Bowl victory on Jan. 2.

Anderson, who started nine games for Ole Miss as a senior this season, reportedly entered the NCAA transfer portal two days after the season ended.

“I’m very excited and blessed to announce that I am committed to play my final year of eligibility at Indiana,” Anderson tweeted.

It’s a welcome move in Bloomington, where Indiana could use more players capable of generating pressure up front. Adding a veteran SEC defensive lineman is a nice way to start the offseason.

In four years at Ole Miss, Anderson recorded 98 tackles, 38 solo stops and seven sacks.
