With signing day less than 24 hours away, Indiana has picked up a pair of last-minute commitments.
HoosierNation.com has learned that Aaron and Adrian Burks, a set of twins from Phoenix, Arizona's Desert Vista H.S., have committed to IU Coach Terry Hoeppner and plan on signing national letters of intent on Wednesday. Adrian is a 6-0, 185-pound wide receiver/running back, while Aaron is 5-11, 190-pound safety.
"They did commit to Indiana," said the boys' father, Mark Burks.
The pair, which have yet to make an official visit to Bloomington, are expected to make their officials this coming weekend. Both were receiving interest from Minnesota, Boise State and Colorado as well.
The twins helped guide Desert Vista to a 6-5 record this past fall. Adrian rushed 134 times for 684 yards and four touchdowns, while also catching 14 passes for 141 yards as well. Aaron, meanwhile, totaled 56 tackles from his safety position and had a team-high four interceptions and three fumble recoveries.
HoosierNation.com will have more on IU's latest commitments later today.
