According to multiple reports, Indiana QB Peyton Ramsey will seek opportunities outside of Indiana to play his final year of NCAA eligibility. The redshirt junior out of Elder High School (Cincinnati, Ohio) signed with the Hoosiers in 2016, and has been an important part of the Indiana offense in the past three seasons.
During his career in Bloomington, Ramsey played in 32 games and accumulated a total of 6,581 passing yards. He has thrown for 14 touchdowns and has rushed for another 14.
After redshirt freshman Michael Penix Jr. was named the Indiana starting quarterback, Ramsey remained on the Indiana roster as the backup quarter during the 2019 season. The decision to stay was important and proved to be valuable for both Ramsey and the Hoosiers. Due to injury, Penix Jr. was ruled out for the remainder of the 2019 season, which allowed Ramsey to lead the Indiana Hoosiers on a historic 8-5 season.
In the quarterback room, Indiana is now down to Penix, redshirt sophomore Jack Tuttle, and incoming freshman Dexter Williams II. The Hoosiers have also had 2017 Indiana Mr. Football Reese Taylor in the quarterback rotation as needed. The current cornerback played the quarterback position for Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis.
