I will leave,.Kurtis Rourke said it the fear…

The Indiana football team’s new staff hopes they added the right mix of transfers to build an explosive offense capable of competing in the Big Ten.

 

The list of additions includes a former MAC Offensive Player of the Year at quarterback, an 1,000-yard receiver and offensive lineman with 34 career starts.

 

Indiana’s spring game provided an early glimpse at what the depth chart could look in a Week 1 matchup against FIU, here’s where things stand going into the team’s summer workout program:

 

Quarterback

Kurtis Rourke

Tayven Jackson

It was telling that Tayven Jackson didn’t get any snaps with the first-team offense in the spring game. He showed some flashes in the exhibition — he made some nice reads and connected with Andison Coby on a pair nicely well-place throws down the sideline — but Rourke’s three-plus seasons of starting experience gave him a real advantage. He showed a nice command of the offense particularly when he had a chance to run a two-minute drill at the end of the scrimmage. Jackson is still an important piece to the puzzle considering IU hasn’t had a quarterback start all 12 games since 2018 (Peyton Ramsey).
