Kevin Wilson's squad is getting better every day. Former Ohio State commit and Lawrence Central star committed to the Hoosiers for the 2014 season. Gardner originally signed with the Ohio State Buckeyes for the 2013 season but was dismissed from the team prior to the season and decided to go the prep school route. He attended the Milford Academy in New York. This is the same prep school that another recent Hoosier commit, Jordan Fuchs, attended.
Gardner is 6'4" and 320 pounds. He should be able to step in and fill some holes that were on the offensive line due to injuries. He is ranked as a four star recruit by 247's composite rankings. His commitment marks the second day in a row in which the Hoosiers picked up a player out of the Milford Academy, and is the 16th commitment for the 2014 class.
