IU football tight end Khameron Taylor in the transfer portal, Howland suspended

Tight end Khameron Taylor is the latest departure from the IU football team via the transfer portal.

Taylor transferred in to the program following the 2019 seasons after three years with South Alabama.  He arrived as an immediately eligible graduate transfer.

The 6-foot-4 and 270 pound Taylor never appeared in a game during his two seasons with Indiana.  He dealt with injuries during both campaigns.

Indiana brought in Taylor with the view that he would predominately be a blocker, but they also saw the athletic potential to make plays as a pass-catcher.

The Alachua, Fla. product had seven catches for 85 yards and a touchdown during his time at South Alabama.


Indiana true freshman running back Trent Howland is serving a two-game suspension that began on Saturday at Michigan for a violation of team rules.  Howland has carried the ball five times for 17 yards in one appearance this season.

The Hoosiers lost starting running back Stephen Carr to an ankle injury during the Michigan game, leaving them very thin at the position for this weekend against Rutgers if he cannot play.

If Carr cannot play it would leave Indiana with just one scholarship running back, true freshman David Holloman, along with three walk-ons — Chris Childers, Davion Ervin-Poindexter and Charlie Spegal.  Childers and Ervin-Poindexter split the running back duties after Carr left the game on Saturday.
