Adding defensive ends in the 2017 class is a top priority for the Indiana staff and one prospect they have been recruiting for quite some time is Olalere Oladipo. The 6-foot-4, 235-pound from from Huntley (IL) Huntley H.S. announced today on his Twitter account that the Hoosiers are one of his top six schools.
Oladipo told Peegs.com that Indiana is in good shape with him because of the respect he has for defensive coordinator Tom Allen and defensive line coach Mark Hagen.
“I like them both a lot. I like Coach Allen’s background and he is just a good guy,” Oladipo said. “With Coach Hagen I was at the spring game and I liked the energy he brings to the football field. I also like his background and how he played there and how he just wants to make Indiana great again. I respect him for that. I also like how both coaches in the SEC, which is one of the best football conferences. They both definitely know what they are talking about.”
