Bloomington – The freshman most likely to play for the IU football team this season is now out temporarily due to an academic issue.

Bloomington – The freshman most likely to play for the IU football team this season is now out temporarily due to an academic issue.

After making a rapid ascent up the IU depth chart this fall, wide receiver Tandon Doss was held out of practice Friday morning due to an academic issue according to IU football media relations director Jeff Keag.

It’s unclear exactly when the issue will be resolved for Doss, a 6’4”, 185-pound receiver from Indianapolis’ Ben Davis H.S. Doss was at practice Friday morning, but was in shorts and a t-shirt and was unable to participate in any of the team’s drills.

Doss has been arguably the most impressive freshman during the first two weeks of camp. He’s moved up the depth chart in a hurry, spending the last couple of days working with the No. 1s while projected starter Andrew Means recovers from a minor foot injury.

IU wide receivers coach Billy Lynch hasn’t been surprised by Doss’ success after recruiting him last season.

“He’s what I thought,” Lynch said last week. “I thought he’d be a guy who would be very smooth, would be faster than people think with great ball skills and a great understanding of the game. That’s what he’s shown so far.”
