Football Recruiting Update: July 1, 2014

Here are several reports from national analysts involving IU recruits. Included is a story on Noah Turner from Mundelein Carmel (Ill.) who has two offers, one of which is from Indiana.

Here are some stories involving Indiana recruiting targets from several of our Scout national analysts for Tuesday, July 1, 2014:

1. Wednesday was expected to be a busy day for IU on the recruiting front as at least three recruits had said they would announce their decisions. Now, that number is down to one that we know plans to announce for sure.

2. Beth Long reported that 4-star wide receiver Miles Boykin of Providence (Ill.) Catholic will announce his decision on Wednesday via Twitter. His Twitter handle is @MBoykin814.

3. In addition, Allen Trieu said last week that Chicago Hales Franciscan S Patrick Nelson said he planned to announce his decision on Wednesday as well. But all of that changed when he picked up an offer from Illinois and committed to the Illini late last week.

4. A third recruit looked as if he was going to commit on Wednesday but now has postponed that announcement. Gabe Brooks who originally said that according to Scout's Arkansas State site, Greenville (Texas) WR D'erren Wilson would announce his decision Wednesday, has now said Wilson will wait. According to the site, Wilson has a final three of Arkansas State, BYU and Indiana. Now that's an interesting three. LINK

5. Trieu also had a story about Mundelein Carmel (Ill.) TE Noah Turner talking about his second offer which he picked up from IU. The other is Illinois. Turner said his dad played for the Hoosiers (and his grandpa played at Purdue). LINK

6. Dave Berk had this story about three SW Ohio new 3-star recruits: Messiah deWeaver, Roland Walder and Jango Glackin. LINK

7. Berk also had a commitment spotlight on Austin Dorris, who was IU's eighth commit in this class. LINK

8. Finally, Long had a story about IU's most recent commit, Omari Stringer, and reports how she believes Stringer will impact the Hoosiers. LINK
