A four year starter at left tackle may be looking elsewhere for a potential fifth year of college football.
Coy Cronk has entered his name into the transfer portal based on several reports.
Matt Hladik was the first to report the news on Twitter.
Indiana OL Coy Cronk is in the NCAA transfer portal, per source…was a multi-year starter for the Hoosiers before suffering a season-ending injury this year.

Cronk suffered a season ending lower leg injury on Sept. 21 against Connecticut. Because he did not play in more than four games the senior from Lafayette is eligible for a fifth season under the college football redshirt rules. Widely viewed as a player that would play professionally after the 2019 season before the injury, Cronk could also consider entering his name in the 2019 NFL Draft.
The 6-foot-5, 325 pound Cronk started in every game that he was available to play in at Indiana. Although his name is in the transfer portal, Cronk has the option to return to Indiana.
Cronk started the season on the Outland Trophy Watch List and the Senior Bowl Watch List.
True freshman Matthew Bedford started at left tackle in place of Cronk after the injury.
