5/17/2021

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – The Indiana football program announced on Monday afternoon that defensive lineman Jaren Handy has joined the Hoosiers as a transfer from Auburn University. Handy played in 14 games for the Tigers from 2019-20.

“Jaren brings a tremendous amount of talent to our team,” IU head coach Tom Allen said. “He’s a special young man who is a perfect fit with us and is excited for the opportunity to play with his cousin, Ty Fryfogle. Jaren will provide power and explosion on our defensive line.”

A 6-5, 255-pounder out of Hattiesburg, Miss., Handy totaled 10 tackles, three for loss, one sack, two quarterback hurries, and one pass breakup at Auburn.

He was a consensus four-star prospect and the No. 100 prospect nationally in the 247Sports 2019 composite rankings. Handy recorded 14 TFLs as a senior for head coach Troy Vance at Hattiesburg High School and played in the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game.

The son of Leroy Handy and Tamara Fairley, Handy studied in the College of Liberal Arts at Auburn.
