Key Indiana football transfer addition tabbed to 2023 All-Transfer Team

The Indiana football program came into the offseason with a major point of emphasis on the transfer portal.

In total, it landed 21 transfer commitments — both in the early signing period and then throughout this summer.

The Hoosiers lost a lot of key pieces from last year’s roster and a lot of veterans who had been with the program as multi-year starters. So, getting impact transfers was something Indiana needed desperately.

247Sports put together its 2023 All-Transfer Team for this offseason and one key Indiana football transfer landed on the list — Andre Carter.

“One of two former Western Michigan defensive linemen on the all-transfer portal team, Carter played 714 snaps in 2022, racking up 13.5 TFL and seven sacks, plus two forced fumbles and a nice impact in the passing game, with three deflections and an interception,” Brad Crawford wrote. “No. 101 nationally in defensive yards per play a year ago, the Hoosiers need all the help they can get.”

Carter arrives in Bloomington as one of the better transfers around the country. He was listed as the No. 21 overall transfer this offseason.

Last season, he totaled 70 tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.

Carter is 6-foot-5 and 273 pounds and has played every defensive line position this spring with Indiana. His physical stature stands out immediately.

“He is the biggest, most physical one we’ve had here since I’ve been here. Very, very disruptive,” IU head coach Tom Allen said.

In 47 career games at Western Michigan, he has totaled 134 tackles, 11 sacks and six forced fumbles.

Each suite costs $20,000/season, which includes 16 tickets to each of IU’s home games. Pricing for a single-game suite is TBD.

Below is the full release from the Indiana football program.

Bloomington, Ind. – Hoosier Football fans now have the chance to enjoy a premium suite experience at Memorial Stadium from field level.

Beginning this fall, Memorial Stadium will feature eight field level suites on the stadium’s south end located immediately behind the end zone. Each suite includes spacious, sectional furniture seating; a mounted large screen television on the suite’s awning; a drink rail with seating facing the field; high barstool seats to provide additional seating space. Other special amenities include an all-you-can-eat hospitality buffet; domestic, craft beer, and wine options; a personal suite attendant; and a unique player vantage point from field level.

Each suite costs $20,000/season, which includes 16 tickets to each of IU’s home games beginning with the Sept. 2 opener against Ohio State. Pricing for a single-game suite is TBD.

The new premium suite experience is the result of a new partnership between IU Athletics and REVELXP.

“We continue to look for ways to enhance and expand the game-day experience alternatives for Hoosier football fans, so we are excited to offer this new premium seating opportunity beginning this fall,” said IU Vice President and Director of Athletics Scott Dolson. “REVELXP has a proven track record of providing the highest level of service and experiences at a wide array of events, college football included.  I expect this to be a very enticing opportunity for our fanbase for not only this year, but for years to come.”
