Indiana football roster updates

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - The Indiana football team opened 2012 preseason camp Thursday morning, and head coach Kevin Wilson announced several roster updates and released the team's 105-player camp roster.
Safety Shaquille Jefferson and wide receiver Logan Young have left the program to pursue other opportunities.
"We thank Shaquille and Logan for their contributions to the program. Both have indicated they plan to transfer to another school to continue their careers. They leave IU in good standing and we wish them the best," Wilson said.
True freshman defensive end Adam Kranda has not reported for the start of camp.
"Adam is dealing with a private matter. It is our intention to work with him to have him here in the near future. Adam has a bright future and will be a valuable piece on our defensive line," Wilson said.
Running back Matt Perez, tight end Paul Phillips, linebacker Ishmael Thomas and walk-on tight end Jordan Jackson will not attend camp due to injuries.
"Matt (back), Paul (ankle), Ishmael (shoulder) and Jordan (knee) have been rehabbing their injuries, but they are not ready to compete at this time. We look forward to getting these men back on the field as soon as possible."
Wide receiver Kofi Hughes, cornerback Lawrence Barnett and safety Forisse Hardin will each serve a one-game suspension during the 2012 season for a violation of team rules.
Wide receiver Jay McCants has been dismissed from the team for a violation of team rules.
Wilson also welcomed 18 walk-ons to the program:
