BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) Indiana quarterback Richard Lagow will start Thursday night at Florida International.

Coach Kevin Wilson announced Friday that the highly-touted junior college transfer beat out junior Zander Diamont, who had more experience in the Hoosiers' system.

Wilson made it clear Lagow's hold on the job will only last as long as he stays healthy and produces on the field.

Lagow initially signed with UConn but left school before the 2013 season opener. He then walked on at Oklahoma State, where he redshirted, then spent the next two seasons at Cisco (Texas) Community College.

He threw for 4,506 yards and 38 touchdowns, becoming one of the top junior college recruits.

Lagow has two years of eligibility remaining.
