Indiana will have a new starting quarterback when the Curt Cignetti era kicks off in 2024.
Brendan Sorsby announced he was entering the transfer portal before IU announced Cignetti as its next head coach, so it seemed plausible he could return to Bloomington.
But Sorsby announced on Wednesday he is transferring to Cincinnati.
Sorsby started the last six games of the season and appeared in 10 contests for the Hoosiers in 2023.
The 6-3, 230-pound native of Denton, Texas threw for 1,587 yards in 10 games for Indiana and rushed for 477 sack adjusted yards with four touchdowns. His completion percentage was 56.96% and his quarterback rating was 129.88.
Cignetti could be eyeing his former James Madison quarterback Jordan McCloud as Sorsby’s replacement for the 2024 season. McCloud entered the transfer portal a few days ago.
As of today, Indiana still has quarterbacks Tayven Jackson and Broc Lowry returning next year for their respective redshirt sophomore and freshman seasons. End of 2022 starter Dexter Williams is also in the transfer portal.
The Hoosiers have also offered a pair of class of 2024 high school quarterbacks over the last few days.
