One spot where Indiana is going to lose some experienced leadership after the 2019 season is on the interior of its offensive line.
They are bringing in a veteran to help shore things up.
Former Stanford guard Dylan Powell announced via Twitter that he is transferring to Indiana to pursue his MBA and join the football team.
I am excited to announce that I will be finishing my football career and pursing my MBA at Indiana University. I can’t wait to get up to Bloomington and do something special. I’m thankful for the opportunity @CoachAllenIU @OLCoachHiller @WilliamInge1 #LEO #GoHoosiers pic.twitter.com/d49tigMHVi

According to Taylor Lehman of Rivals, Powell has two years of eligibility remaining.
The Missouri native was slated to be a starting guard at Stanford for the 2019 season, but a preseason injury cost Powell the entire season.
Powell will arrive at IU with plenty of experience. He played in 20 games over the last two seasons, including three starts at the end of 2018.
Indiana loses guard Simon Stepaniak and center Hunter Littlejohn on the interior of its offensive line after this season, which creates an opportunity for Powell to compete for a starting job from day one.
Powell was Pac-12 All-Academic each of the last two seasons and earned his degree in communications.
As a prep star out of Hannibal, Missouri, Powell was a three-star recruit and the No. 39 guard in the country in the class of 2016 according to Rivals.
