Metro/Prep roundup: Sycamore football adds four transfers

TERRE HAUTE — Indiana State head football coach Mike Sanford announced Monday that four student-athletes have been added to the 2014 roster as mid-year transfers. All four are currently enrolled at Indiana State and will participate in spring practice.

New to the Sycamore football roster in 2014 will be running back Deionte Buckley, quarterback Patrick Coyne, defensive lineman Kris Davis and linebacker Jordan Wallace.

“Each of these young men bring experience as extremely talented high school athletes and all come to us from quality FBS programs,” Sanford said. “They have already hit the ground running in our offseason program and will have the opportunity to learn our system this spring with our returning players.”

Buckley is a 5-10, 210-pound sophomore running back who comes to Indiana State from Cincinnati. He played for the Bearcats in 2012 as a true freshman seeing action on special teams and at tailback. He earned 32 rushing yards on four carries in 2012. He did not see game action in 2013 and will have three years of eligibility remaining.

He ranked as the No. 5 player in the state of Indiana and the No. 31 running back nationally as a member of the 2012 recruiting class out of Warren Central, where he carried the ball 214 times for 1,610 yards with 27 touchdowns.

Coyne is a 6-1, 240-pound junior quarterback who also comes to Indiana State from Cincinnati. He did not see game action with the Bearcats but has spent time on the travel squad at quarterback. Coyne spent a redshirt season at Cincinnati in 2011.

A native of Cincinnati, Coyne enjoyed a standout career at Badin High School, where he suffered an injury in the team’s first game of the 2010 campaign. He threw for 1,642 yards and nine touchdowns while rushing for 491 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior.

Kris Davis is a 6-1, 275-pound freshman defensive lineman who enters the program after transferring from Miami (Ohio). Davis was a redshirt in 2013 with the RedHawks. He is the brother of Jordan Wallace, who is also transferring into the Sycamore program this offseason.

At Warren Central High School, Davis earned honorable mention all-state honors and was his team’s Academic MVP. In addition to football, Davis is an accomplished wrestler and plays both the piano and oboe while staying active in church and community service. He led Warren Central in tackles for a loss.

Wallace is a 6-0, 235-pound sophomore linebacker who has transferred to the Sycamore program from Indiana. In 2013, he did not see game action but was named the scout team Player Of The Week prior to the season opener against Indiana State. He spent the 2012 campaign as a redshirt was named the Scout Team Player Of The Week following the Wisconsin game.

Wallace also played at Warren Central. He was an All-State selection as both a junior and senior. Wallace made 68 tackles with three quarterback sacks, 10 tackles for a loss, two forced fumbles and one interception as a senior.
