Cornerback Jamison Kelly is no longer with the IU football program, coach Tom Allen announced on Thursday.
Allen did not provide a reason for the midseason departure.
A senior from Columbia, Miss., the 6-foot-1 and 195-pound Kelly was a participant in each of Indiana’s first four games this season. He was credited with one tackle in week two.
He was named one of the team’s special teams player of the week following that week two game vs. Indiana State.
According to PFF’s stats, all of Kelly’s participation came via special teams, while six scholarship cornerbacks have seen action on defensive snaps. His opportunity on the defense did not expand despite injuries to cornerbacks Jamier Johnson and Nic Toomer.
Kelly and true freshman Jordan Shaw have been the only scholarship cornerbacks to not see defensive snaps through four weeks.
Kelly transferred to IU in the spring. He started his career at Louisiana Tech (17 games) with two seasons played for the Bulldogs, before the 2022 season took him to Jones College where he posted 51 tackles, two forced fumbles and one interception.
