With only a few weeks until Signing Day the Indiana Hoosiers are picking up steam on the recruiting trail. Earlier Wednesday afternoon IU received a commitment from three-star offensive line prospect Mackenzie Nworah from Manvel H.S. in Manvel, TX. Nworah marks the third offensive lineman to commit to the class of 2016. Indiana featured two all-American lineman this past season which he said was "very impressive".
In an interview with Peegs.com he said that his visit to Bloomington "was great. It was nothing I expected it to be. It was really a great campus and it's really beautiful. It was good to meet the coaches and players. They made me feel like I was one of their own. It was just a great experience all together."
At 6-foot-4 and 305-pounds Nworah is a big body who will fit into the Big Ten. He played guard in high school and his highlight tape shows that his is explosive off the ball and is solid in pass protection. He could be in play to crack the two-deep as a freshman. At worst he will be added depth across what should again be a strong front. Nworah is ranked at the 901st best prospect in the country according to 247 Sports and bumped the Hoosiers up to 12th in the Big Ten, jumping Rutgers, and up to 69th nationally. He received offers from Missouri, Illinois, Maryland, Purdue, Arizona State, Boston College, Colorado, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Houston, Louisiana Tech, Utah State, and Texas State.
