The losses for Indiana keep on coming. While the current Hoosiers were defeated in New Jersey 45-23 by Rutgers a future Hoosier, running back prospect Titus Booker, decommitted and will be heading to Madison, Wisconsin to play for the Badgers. Booker announced his decision to flip to Wisconsin to night via Twitter. Booker committed to Indiana in July after receiving an offer after taking an unofficial visit back on June 21st. Booker was also on campus for the Indiana-Maryland game on September 27th. Coach James Patton for the Hoosiers recruited him.
A 3-star cornerback/running back out of Grayslake, Illinois. 247 Sports ranks booker as the 24th best prospect in the state and the 74th best running back in the nation. However, Booker projects to play corner at the next level. At 5’11” and 172 lbs. Booker has the size to match-up with receivers in the Big Ten and according to Rivals.com possesses 4.47 speed and a 37-inch vertical, so he can go up and get the ball. This week has to be very concerning for the Hoosier coaching staff who has seen their recruiting class drop to just 10 prospects and are now ranked 71st in the nation. Right now it would look as if the decommitment of Tommy Stevens may start a mass exodus from the #CrimsonArmy15.
