Hoosiers add Georgia Tech linebacker in transfer

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Linebacker T.J. Roof is transferring from Georgia Tech to Indiana.

He will be eligible for spring practice but must sit out next season because of the NCAA transfer rules. He will have three years of eligibility remaining when he returns in 2019.

The 5-foot-11, 215-pound Roof played in 11 games as a freshman in 2017, finishing with 17 tackles and two sacks.

Coach Tom Allen says he’s eager to see what Roof can add to the Hoosiers. Roof helped Buford High School reach four straight Georgia state championship games, winning titles in 2013 and 2014.

His father, Ted, is North Carolina State’s assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. Roof’s twin brother, Mic, is a quarterback at Charlotte.

Records: 5 football players admit roles in boy’s sex assault

BIXBY, Okla. (AP) — New court documents show five Oklahoma high school football players admitted to taking part in the sexual assault of a teammate that prosecutors say wasn’t promptly reported.

Written statements from the Bixby High School players were included in paperwork filed Tuesday as prosecutors investigate whether school officials waited too long to tell police about the accusation.

The players’ names are redacted. Documents don’t specify what the boys admitted. It’s unclear whether the school district disciplined any player.

School officials are accused of waiting eight days to report what was first deemed “an alleged hazing incident” after the 16-year-old boy told officials a teammate in September had assaulted him through his shorts with a pool cue while others restrained him.

The superintendent resigned last month amid the fallout.
