Good athlete who is almost always in good position to make plays and seems to think the game very well. Can play in a variety of roles and positions. Committed to Notre Dame.
2. Asmar Bilal, LB, Ben Davis
Fast, athletic kid who has more of a longer, wiry frame, but does not shy away from contact despite that. Upside is high.
3. Darrin Kirkland, LB, Lawrence Central
Michigan commit was very productive as a sophomore and junior. Good, smart football player who showed this summer that he could play in space and cover.
4. Justin Tranquill, S, Fort Wayne Carroll
Explosive, competitve athlete who can play man to man and has good ball skills. ACL injury will keep him out as a senior, but he had a great junior year followed by a strong offseason.
5. Tommy Stevens, QB, Decatur Central
Indiana commit fits the Hoosier offense and mold of today's quarterbacks. He can run, throw on the move and give a defense multiple looks.
6. Mykelti Williams, S, Warren Central
He surprised me with his coverage ability at the NFTC in Chicago. Couple that with the production he's had at Warren Central throughout his career and he's a top in-state guy this year.
7. Jacob Robinson, DE, Westfield
Edge rusher who can run and pursue and should fit in well in Indiana's new defense, especially as he continues to fill out.
8. Brandon Knight, OT, Noblesville
Didn't camp this summer, so we didn't get to see him much, but on film, he's a good athlete who can move his feet and finshes his blocks.
9. Isaac James, WR, Carmel
Fast, explosive athlete who can line up in the backfield, slot, or variety of other roles. Wisconsin and Northwestern are battling hard for him.
10. Adam Solomon, OT, Bishop Chatard
Big frame and good ability to move that frame on film. Committed to Illinois where he has a chance to be a good one for the Illini.
