03/06/2012 - With eight NFL scouts in Bloomington Monday for Indiana's Pro Day, Damarlo Belcher decided it was time to come clean. Belcher, who was dismissed from the Indiana football team nine games into the 2011 season for a violation of team rules, told the scouts what he had previously kept to himself regarding why coach Kevin Wilson had kicked him off the IU team. "Failed a drug test," he told reporters assembled for IU's Pro Day. "I tried to keep it low key. They had to know sooner or later. I just tried to keep it a secret all the way until then." At the time of his dismissal in late October, the senior wide receiver was within two receptions of becoming IU's all-time career leader. He had 189 catches. James Hardy holds the school record with 191. Injuries and a one-game suspension, however, had only allowed Belcher to play in six of the first nine games. He had 25 catches for 286 yards and a touchdown when he was kicked off the team. As a junior, Belcher had 78 catches for 832 yards and four touchdowns. Belcher said he told the scouts that he was hanging around with the wrong crowd. "I basically told them, ???Man, I just gotta watch who I hang around with and watch my peers because it's easy to do bad things when those guys aren't doing the same things as you.' I just told them my word is my bond and I won't let the same things happen again at the next level." Even though Belcher had been dismissed from the team, Wilson allowed him to be part of IU's Pro Day to work out for the scouts. Wilson also let Belcher use IU's weight room facilities to prepare for the workout. - Terry Hutchens, The Indianapolis Star
