Hoosier TE Hendershot pleads to domestic trespass charge … Indiana junior TE Peyton Hendershot, one of the top players at the position in college football, plead guilty last week to a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespass as a result of an incident in February in which he was charged with residential entry, a felony, along with misdemeanor charges of domestic battery, criminal mischief, and criminal conversion. Hendershot had entered his ex-girlfriend’s apartment without permission and during an argument took her cell phone without permission, grabbed her by the neck and shoved her against a wall. The felony residential entry charge was later reduced to criminal trespass and the other charges were dropped when Hendershot plead guilty. He was initially suspended indefinitely by the team, but he was allowed to participate in some video team activities in recent week. Still not clear what happens to his status in the fall and the NFL will look hard at the situation when he does enter the draft, but it does appear Hendershot is in a better spot now than before the guilty plea. The 6-4, 260-pound Hendershot had a breakout year in 2019 when he hauled in 52 receptions for over 600 yards.
