Camp season is in full swing and the Hoosiers are out hunting for new recruits. On Friday afternoon one of their main targets Jeramy Passmore pulled the trigger in favor of the Hoosiers. He made his announcement on Twitter, saying "Thank God for all the gifts he has given me and the people he has put into my life that helped me get to where I am today. After a lot of prayer and discussing things with my family I have decided to commit to (Indiana University) Go Hoosiers!!"
Passmore is a three-star recruit who is rated as the 817th best player in the country, He is a six-foot-two 250-pound prospect out of Columbus H.S. in Miami, FL. He projects to be a defensive tackle at the next level. He was on campus when Indiana held their spring game back in April.
Passmore racked up 75 tackles and had 16 sacks in 12 games as a junior last season. Using his remarkable size, Passmore has the girth to blow up plays from the defensive tackle position. He also has the athleticism to rush the passer or sniff out the run from either defensive end spot. He’s shown the ability to shake blockers with his agility and speed, but at 250-pounds, Passmore can bull rush his fair share of high schoolers. At Indiana University,
Passmore will likely play defensive tackle. His current body type is most similar to IU defensive linemen Allen Stallings IV and Nile Sykes, but Passmore will hit the weight room hard with Coach Ballou and Rhea. Passmore fell in love with the family atmosphere and culture the coaching staff is building. Passmore and in-state standout Beau Robbins will help form a deep and formidable defensive line. The future up front is shining bright in Bloomington.
Passmore held offers from 32 total schools and IU beat out Boston College, Georgia Tech and Wake Forest for his services. Fans can watch his junior season highlight on HUDL. Passmore is the fourth commitment in the Hoosiers 2019 class. Passmore's high school head coach is Chris Merritt who played for the Hoosiers in the early 90's.
