With signing day just a week away on Feb. 4, is hoping to introduce Indiana football fans to some of its commits. The first way we’re doing that is looking at players who have Scout Spotlight videos that have been done on them.

Monday, we looked at Brandon Wilson, the 6-4, 238-pound defensive end from Winter Garden, Fla. West Orange High School.

Tuesday, we introduced IU fans to quarterback prospect Austin King, a pocket passer from Alpharetta, Ga.

Today, the focus switches to a player who made what might be considered an unusual flip of colleges back in mid-December.

Tyler Green, a 6-2, 180-pound safety from DeMatha Catholic in Hyattsville, Md., committed to Indiana on Dec. 14 after announcing a week earlier that he was de-committing from Ohio State.

Here is his Scout Spotlight video.

Green is one of four safeties in this IU class joining Reakwon Jones, Jonathan Crawford and Andre Brown.

He initially committed to Ohio State at a camp last June. He was offered there and committed to Ohio State coach Urban Meyer on the spot.

He didn’t give a reason why he de-committed in December. He chose the Hoosiers over finalists that also included North Carolina State, Virginia and Maryland.
