Former Buckeye, current Hoosier.

Last July was a turbulent time inside the Ohio State football program. One of the issues was true freshman offensive lineman Tim Gardner's arrest for obstruction of police business. Gardner was dismissed from the Buckeyes for his actions and spent the 2013 season at Milford Academy in New Berlin, N.Y. 

This week, Gardner committed to Indiana. He's a graduate of Lawrence Central High School in Indianapolis. He will enroll at IU in January and take part in spring drills. 

“I just decided to stay for the home state,” said Gardner, who committed to IU on Thursday.

Gardner said he chose IU over Ohio State, Arkansas, Louisville and University of Miami (Fla.).

Indiana always recruiting those thugs. Whatever it takes to win I guess.

The kid messed up, does that mean he doesn't deserve a second chance? I hope things work for him.

So OSU kept a spot open for him is the insinuation here?

Do we get any scholarships back this year from the NCAA debacle? Perhaps the plan was that he would use one of those spots... I know others here keep a much closer eye on the number of schollies we have and the number of players filling them, etc., but I'm honestly not sure in either case. Good question, though...
