Indiana names JUCO transfer Richard Lagow starting QB

The Indiana Hoosiers must replace quarterback Nate Sudfeld going into the 2016 season and it is going to be tough for whoever is tasked with that job. However, it seems touted junior college quarterback Richard Lagow is the perfect man for the job this year.

Lagow transferred into Indiana last winter after spending two seasons at Cisco Community College. He beat out Zander Diamont, who is much more experienced in the Hoosiers’ system after starting the final six games of the season and went for 515 yards and a touchdown.

In two seasons at Cisco, Lagow threw for over 4,500 yards and 38 touchdowns. He spent his true freshman season at Oklahoma State, where he redshirted in 2013.

The Hoosiers open the season on Sept. 3 against the Florida International Golden Panthers.
