Hoosiers announce signing day list

BLOOMINGTON, IN (WFIE) - 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 2015.

IU signed 10 offensive players, seven defensive players and five athletes. The Hoosiers added four offensive linemen, three wide receivers, one running back, one tight end and one quarterback on offense and three defensive linemen, two defensive backs and two linebackers on defense.

The class features players from 10 different states, including five from Florida, four from Indiana, three from Ohio, two from Georgia, two from Illinois, two from Maryland, one from Missouri, one from Tennessee, one from Texas and one from Virginia.

“We signed 22 players today on top of our two mid-year transfers from UAB, running back Jordan Howard and wide receiver Marqui Hawkins,” Wilson said. “Both of those guys are here helping us at positions of need. We added seven linemen, six guys who played quarterback in high school and are very athletic. They can play a lot of positions.

“There is one true quarterback in Austin King and one true running back in Devonte Williams. Devonte is in a group of athletes that includes nine guys who play wide receiver and defensive back. I love the speed of the group, the length of the group.

“We were not big at linebacker this year having taken a number of linebackers in the previous two classes, but we are really excited about Reakwon Jones and Omari Stringer. This is really a big class with a lot of fast, athletic skill guys that I think will help us on both sides of the ball.”
