Natee was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week earlier this week after running 18 times for 111 yards and a touchdown last week in the Hoosiers’ win over Maryland last Saturday. It’s his first 100-yard game of his college career.
In his high school career, Natee racked up more than 4,500 yards of total offense and left Trinity as one of the best rushers in school history, finishing with over 3,000 yards. He also was a versatile fit in the Trojans offense, starting as a fullback before taking over at quarterback his junior and senior year. Known for his size, Natee also showed great agility and impressive ability as a runner.
The star in Trinity’s offense was a late addition to Indiana’s recruiting class, but he’s left a big impression on his coaches and teammates during his time in Bloomington, earning the nickname ‘Big Bacon’.
Natee is officially listed at 270 pounds on Indiana’s roster. After a standout performance against the Maryland Terps, perhaps this could be a sign of things to come for the former quarterback.
At 4-4, the Hoosiers need to win two more games to become bowl eligible. The Hoosiers are known for spreading it out and going no-tempo, but after last week’s stand out performance, Natee could become a major strength and key in getting Indiana back to a bowl game.
