Spring Practice Day Five Notables

March 21st, 2019

The Hoosiers got back to work after more than a week away from the field for spring practice number five. Once again the Hoosiers were inside the Mellencamp Pavilion. It may be officially spring, but the weather has not gotten the memo just yet. While we were not on the ground in Bloomington, Tom Allen spoke to IUHoosiers.com to discuss practice.

COUNTDOWN TO KICKOFF: #87- MICHAEL ZIEMBA

Height: 6’3’’
Weight: 245 pounds
Hometown: Lake Mary, Florida
Year: Sophomore
Position: Defensive End

While most schools recruited Michael Ziemba as a tight end coming out of High School, Mark Hagen identified him as a potential contributor on defense and recruited him to play that side of the ball at IU instead. Although athletic enough to be ranked by ESPN as the #23 tight end in the class nationally, many people around the program figured Ziemba would be a redshirt candidate in his first season in Bloomington. While he didn’t make much of an immediate impact on defense as a true freshman, Ziemba was all over the field during a total of 10 games in 2017, mixing in some on the D-Line while playing a large amount of snaps on special teams.

Michael Ziemba, 6’3”, 245 pounds, Lake Mary, FL (Lake Mary High School), DE/TE, 247Sports Composite Ranking: 3-star (82.55)

The Indiana Hoosiers continue to recruit the Sunshine State incredibly well as they added yet another prospect from Florida to their roster. Michael Ziemba, a 3-star prospect from Lake Mary, has sent in his fax letter and officially joined the “Hoosier Army”. Ziemba had an extensive offer list and he chose IU over Cincinnati, East Carolina, Purdue and Appalachian State. Ziemba would probably have been ranked higher than he ended up being but he suffered an injury that forced him to miss all but one game of his senior season at Lake Mary High School. IU linebackers coach William Inge has been supremely valuable as a recruiter in the Central Florida area and he was the lead man on Ziemba’s successful recruitment
