Indiana head football coach Gerry DiNardo took small steps towards building a successful football program this off season. DiNardo's staff has recruited heavily throughout the country, particularly in the Southeast where DiNardo commands respect from his coaching days at LSU.
Indiana's best incoming recruit is running back Kenni Burns from Sacred Heart Griffin High School in Springfield, Illinois. Foot injuries bothered Burns his junior season after a superb sophomore season. Burns returned to form his senior season rushing for over 2500 yards and 31 touchdowns.
After Burns signed with Indiana, HoosierInsider sat down with him on January 11th to discuss his strengths, weaknesses and future plans for himself and the IU football program.

The Insiders.com features a Midwest Top 100, rating the 100 best players in the Midwest. Burns is rated as number 79, however many recruiters have not given him the credit he deserves because of the injury he suffered his junior year. With speed, vision, and the ability to cutback, Burns could me a force in upcoming years for the Hoosiers.
