COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF: #54 Grayson Stover
Weight: 302 pounds
Hometown: Spring Hill, FL (Hudson)
Year: RS Sophomore
Position: Offensive Line
The offensive line is a position group that the Hoosiers aren’t too worried about depth and personnel wise. Grayson Stover, a redshirt sophomore, is a player that adds to this depth. Coming out of Hudson High School in Florida, 24/7 Sports ranked Stover a 3-star prospect and he committed to the Hoosiers in January of 2016. In high school, he played in the Blue-Grey All-American Game and was a two-time all-conference selection. Stover redshirted his freshman year and during the 2017 season he played in eight games making his debut in the win over Virginia.
As the Hoosiers return all the major contributors from 2017 in the upcoming season, Stover will battle to see field time as he adds depth to an already experienced and strong offensive line. Last season the run game was inconsistent and in order for it to become a weapon for the Indiana offense, this offensive line needs to stay healthy and step up their game a bit. Over the summer and heading into the fall we will get to see what the depth of the O-line looks like and how Stover and the rest of the position players fit into it.
