Sometimes in the passing game, you just need a guy that can go up and get the ball over smaller cornerbacks. The Hoosiers have signed just that in big-bodied receiver Jordan Jakes. Jakes played his senior season in Baltimore, Maryland at St. Frances Academy. Jakes held 18 offers but chose the Hoosiers in August over the likes of Virginia, Michigan, and Michigan State. Despite his size, Jakes has proven he can move around at the receiver position and catch balls both on the outside and in the slot: versatility which will come in handy at the next level.
