Indiana lands Florida running back

The Hoosiers land a power running back prospect from south Florida in Myles Graham. He committed to Kevin Wilson and his Indiana staff last night.

Myles Graham (Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade-Madonna) made his college decision yesterday. This running back prospect from the Sunshine State committed to Indiana.

"I committed to Indiana last night," Graham said. "I just like the program overall. The facilities are nice and the coaches are great. I really like what coach [Kevin] Wilson is doing. I want to be a part of something great."

Graham visited both Western Kentucky and Indiana last week. It was his first time in Bloomington and he liked what he saw.

"I did and I have a lot of family up north in St. Louis and Chicago," Graham said. "I really liked the city and campus."

Graham, 6-foot-0 and 210-pounds, is a big back that runs with a tremendous amount of power.

"I am a power back that fits that Big 10 style," Graham said. "I have pretty good open field speed but I can be better. I need to be able to make that one cut and make people miss."

Last season as a junior Graham had a very productive season despite only playing in seven games. He rushed the ball 75 times for 852 yards and 13 touchdowns.

"I missed four games because of a foot and ankle injury and I think that scared away from teams," Graham said. "I know Nebraska and Clemson are a couple of schools that told me that they wanted to see me play before they offered.

"I did have other scholarship offers from teams like Bowling Green, Ohio, Tulane and Western Kentucky. Right now I am very healthy and happy to be committed to Indiana. I wanted to get it down before the season."
