Kris Smith, and OLB from Georgia chose the Hoosiers last night. He held offers from IU, Cinn, Purdue, Syracuse, UCF and others. ESPN ranks him as a four star player while Rivals has him at three stars.
He's a big, rangy kid at 6-4 205lbs, I'd expect him to put on fifteen or twenty lbs in IU's weight room. This is a really nice pickup and our defense needs him. Four star rating from ESPN is good to see, must have a big upside.
We're after his teammate too, Noel Padmore who's a DB and has IU right at the top. He has a ton of BCS offers too, be nice to get him in the fold. Our defense finally looks to be attracting the talent to be good.
