IU’s Doss to Enter NFL Draft

An IU Football team member has announced his intention to enter the NFL draft this spring. Tandon Doss has left his classes, but hasn’t ruled out returning to school later.

Doss will train in Florida before April’s draft. Currently, 16 Hoosiers are in the NFL and Doss hopes to make it 17 this year.

“It’s been my dream since I was a little boy,” Doss said. “It’s what I’ve always wanted and my families been behind me 100% every one of my games since I was little and I worked hard for it. It’s a lot, you just got to pray about it and clear your mind and just gotta focus on football. It’s a good thing no going back to school this semester so I can solely focus on football and do my training.”

Doss caught 154 balls for 1854 yards in his Indiana career and was the team’s leader in catches, touchdown receptions and receiving yards in 2009.

Doss says it’s his hope – and his mother’s — that he finish his general studies degree in the next few years, regardless of whether he’s in the NFL.
