More on Belcher's return

Indiana has officially announced Damarlo Belcher's decision to return to the football program for his senior year.

"I believe it is my best interest to return to Indiana University for my senior season," Belcher said in a statement. "One of my goals is to earn my degree and this gives me the opportunity to accomplish that. I am also excited about what we can achieve as a team. I look forward to playing for coach (Kevin) Wilson and getting back to work with the rest of my teammates."

Belcher, a North Side graduate, led the Hoosiers with 78 catches for 832 yards in 2010. He had four touchdowns and averaged 10.7 yards per catch.

Belcher's 6.5 receptions per game topped the Big Ten. His 69.8 yards per game average ranked fourth in the league.

He received All-Big Ten honorable mention recognition from the coaches and media.

"We are very pleased Damarlo is returning for this upcoming season," Wilson said in a statement. "He obviously is a tremendous talent and we are excited to continue his development into one of the top receivers in the nation. Not only is he going to improve on the field, but he is going to work very hard toward earning his degree, which is an important goal for all of our student-athletes."
