If a quarterback targets a wide receiver covered by IU redshirt senior cornerback Rashard Fant, chances are that's not a good idea.

According to Pro Football Focus, Fant leads all returning Big Ten cornerbacks with a conference-low 53.3 quarterback rating, ahead of Ohio State's Denzel Ward and Penn State's Christian Campbell.

Fant decided to return to IU for 2017 after weighing professional options following a successful 2016 campaign. Last season, his 17 pass breakups tied for the second-most nationally.

Fant also recorded 34 tackles and three interceptions last season.
