IU football to start spring practice on March 9 | Newcomer jersey numbers released

The Indiana football program announced on Monday that its spring practice season will begin on Tuesday, March 9.

The program will also host its pro day on April 2.

IU has yet to announce whether it will hold a 2021 spring game, and if it does, whether fans will be permitted to attend.

Indiana held four spring practices last year before the remaining sessions were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Hoosiers are scheduled to open the 2021 season on Sept. 4 at Iowa.  You can see the complete schedule HERE.

Indiana also announced the jersey numbers for seven newcomers that are already training with the program and will participate in spring practice.

  • Wide receiver D.J. Matthews, who transferred in from Florida State, will wear No. 7.
  • Freshman punter James Evans will wear No. 94, the same number worn by Haydon Whitehead.
  • Freshman wide receiver Jordyn Williams will wear No. 17.
  • Freshman offensive lineman Joshua Sales, Jr. will wear No. 52.
