Weekly Recruiting Roundup 5-8-15

Written By: Nick Holmes (@HoosierHolmes)

It has been an incredibly busy week for Coach Wilson and his staff, racking up the frequent flyer miles as they travel all over the country identifying and evaluating talented athletes, searching for the team's next "Boom." The Hoosiers were particularly active in SEC country, extending multiple offers in the states of Alabama, Georgia, Florida, and Texas. The team did not stop there however, offering multiple prospects in conference opponents' backyards.

Coach McCullough was out searching for the Hoosiers next big talent at running back, looking to leverage the success the team had at the position this past fall. Among those who received offers were Texas' Darius Anderson, Alabama's Tyus Flakes, and Florida's Elijah Mack. The Hoosiers also extended an offer to an all-purpose back out of Alabama, Demetrius Davis. Clearly, the team has no shortage of options at the spot.

Although the Hoosiers took themselves out of the running for dual threat quarterback Terry Wilson when they picked up Peyton Ramsey's commitment, I have remained interested in Wilson's recruitment. This week the Oklahoma native committed to Nebraska. The Hoosiers are slated to meet up with the Cornhuskers in the 2016 and 2019 seasons. So while Wilson could see action during his first season on campus, there is a greater chance that the Hoosiers will have to gameplan for the dynamic athlete as he enters his fourth season with the program in 2019. Granted, all this is dependent on him staying committed to Nebraska and developing into a Big Ten starting caliber quarterback.
