We hope everyone had an enjoyable Mother’s Day weekend, but while you were off at brunch or another meal the Hoosier coaching staff continued to pepper the southern states with offers looking for future athletes to don the Cream and Crimson. The most recent off was announced Monday morning when Georgia cornerback/athlete Korey Banks Jr. announced on Twitter that he was offered from Indiana. Corner is a need position for the Hoosiers and Banks would be a great steal if he does indeed commit to Kevin Wilson and his staff. However, IU is battling Michigan for the prospect and all four “Crystal Ball” predictions have him heading to Ann Arbor as part of Jim Harbaugh’s second class.
Banks is a 247 Sports Composite 3-Star corner, who did play receiver in at Sandy Creek in Tyrone, Georgia. He is ranked 860th best player in the nation, 82nd best at his position, and 83rd in his home state of Georgia. At 6-0, 170 lbs. he projects in the secondary but could become a weapon in the return game as well. He has excellent feet and speed. He had 941 total yards as a junior in 2014. The Hoosiers are in desperate need of a home run threat on special teams and depth at corner so if they can pry him away from the Wolverines he would be a treasure for IU. His has 18 offers including Indiana, headlined by Michigan, Arizona, Wisconsin, Syracuse, and Wake Forrest.
