Graduate transfer QB Brandon Dawkins joining Indiana

Brandon Dawkins should add a running element to Indiana's QB position

IU football's young quarterback room got a bit more crowded - and a bit older - Tuesday night with the addition of Arizona graduate transfer Brandon Dawkins.

As a graduate transfer, Dawkins will be eligible to play immediately in 2018 for the Hoosiers. There were other schools, but at the end of the day, IN definitely showed that they're interested and they wanted me, they made that clear and apparent.

In 22 games with Arizona, Dawkins had 2,418 passing yards and 1,582 rushing yards.


Dawkins is a dual-threat quarterback who started all of 2016 and went in to 2017 as the Wildcats' starter before being beat out by Khalil Tate.

"I didn't see a better fit for me", Dawkins told Rittenberg. There were other schools, but at the end of the day, IN definitely showed that they're interested and they wanted me, they made that clear and apparent. I really respect that about them. "They genuinely wanted me". He completed 56% of his passes and threw 15 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

Dawkins, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound product from Oxnard, Calif., was a 3-star quarterback recruit out of high school. He'll likely compete with Peyton Ramsey to win the starting quarterback job, and even if he's not the every-down quarterback could see time in the in offense because of his impressive speed.
