HOOSIERS SIGN TWENTY-TWO ON NATIONAL SIGNING DAY
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana head football coach Kevin
Wilson announced Wednesday the signing of 22 student-athletes to National
Letters of Intent to play for the Hoosiers in 2013.
"We executed our plan very well and are excited about this
class," Wilson said. "We are very fortunate to have a good amount of returning
starters, but we backed that up with, what on paper, is a very, very strong
class, which is critical in building our program. There is potential to help on
the defensive side, up front, at linebacker and on the perimeter. Offensively,
we have 14 returning linemen and three quarterbacks. With those returners, we
were able to concentrate on some other positions, including running back, wide
receiver, tight end and the defense."
IU signed 13 defensive players, five offensive players and
four athletes. The Hoosiers added six defensive linemen, four linebackers and
three defensive backs on defense and two tight ends, two wide receivers and one
running back on offense.
The class features players from eight different states,
including five from Indiana, five from Florida, four from Georgia, four from
Ohio, one from Illinois, one from Louisiana, one from Nebraska and one from New
"We recruit as a team," Wilson said. "There was not one
lead recruiter on any one student-athlete. We had multiple coaches going to
schools over and over, whether it be the areacoach, the assistant coach, the
position coach, the coordinator or me. We also had tremendous behind the scenes
administrative help and support. It was a great team effort that put together
what is a very strong class."
