IU adds JUCO CB Tim Bennett for 2012 season

Tim Bennett, a 5-9, 181-pound cornerback from Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, Iowa, has joined the Indiana program for the 2012 season. The release from IU follows. More to come.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson announced Wednesday that cornerback Tim Bennett has joined the IU football program. Bennett is eligible for the 2012 season and has three years of eligibility remaining.
The 5-9, 181-pound Bennett earned all region honors at Ellsworth Community College in Iowa Falls, Iowa, in 2011. He recorded 50 tackles, 35 solo, with one interception and one tackle for loss.
A native of Columbus, Ga., and a Northside High School graduate, Bennett was a 2010 Ledger-Enquirer All-Bi-City first team selection. He posted 102 stops, 67 solo, with three interceptions and five tackles for loss.
Bennett was born on Feb. 19, 1993, and intends to study exercise science.



  1. Appears to be an upgrade over the DB that just transferred out. I like that KW is opportunistic and getting guys from a variety of JCs on an as-needed basis. IU needs to cast a wide net in order to get the talent necessary to improve and turn the program around. It appears as if KW and staff are doing that. In this day and age, a coach can not afford to have a “parochial” recruiting philosophy, but must enthusiastically search for talent from every available source (within the rules).

  2. I like the way IU is creating some depth on the defensive side of the ball through the JC route.

  3. I believe Mr. Jefferson transferred to a DI AA or DII school. It was announced a few weeks ago. I don’t remember the name of the school. Reading between the lines, my guess is he was encouraged to transfer and was a result of KW’s house-cleaning. He did not get any significant playing time last year and was probably notified that he would not be playing in the future. And given how bad IU’s defensive backfield was last year, that suggests that he did not have Big Ten level talent.

  4. SB: abbreviation of skateboard, the representative shoes or boots are Nike (“asfdfdfhfhfg”) DUNK SB Before spending hardly any money on Christmas ideas for gifts actually it’s usually a good decision to determine what deals nike dunk low pro sb and sales will probably available while in the busier shopping days What this is saying is that if you put the same amount of pressure on each ring that represents a slammed car door the titanium ring will bend out of shape whereas a mens nike dunks high tungsten ring will shatter
