Football To Welcome Handful of Visitors

Bloomington - With signing day now less than a month away, Indiana Football continues to bring in players for official visits. The next couple of weekends are no different...

Bloomington – With signing day approaching, Indiana continues to welcome in recruits as it looks to wrap up its efforts for the 2010 class.

IU Coach Bill Lynch's staff is planning to welcome a handful of recruits to town next weekend for official visits. A couple of those visitors will actually be previously committed prospects whose schedules didn't allow them to make officials with most of the other verbals last month.

Among those who are expected in town:

- Kofi Hughes, Indianapolis Cathedral – The state's Gatorade Player of the Year, Hughes led his team to a 12-2 record and a berth in the semistate as a senior. The 6'3", 200-pound pound Hughes threw for 1,437 yards and 18 touchdowns while also rushing for another 1,574 yards and 20 more scores. He's been playing basketball for Cathedral this winter, but has a break next weekend.

- LeNeil Himes, Plymouth – A honorable mention All-State choice as a reciver/defensive end, Himes was the second player to commit to the Hoosiers last summer, doing so shortly after junior college corner Andre Kates gave his pledge. Like Hughes, Himes couldn't make his official in early-to-mid December along with the other pledges due to schedule conflicts with the Plymouth basketball schedule (Himes is a double-digit scorer for a team that is 6-3).

- Evan Kroot, Brebeuf Jesuit – A standout running back at the Indianapolis school, Kroot was slowed as a senior due to a bout with mononucleosis, which missed him by miss several games in late September and early October. But he returned in early October and still managed to carry 181 times for 1,398 yards and 20 touchdowns. Kroot might end up being more of a preferred walk-on possibility, but he'll be a player to keep an eye on if he does in fact wind up playing for the Hoosiers.

- Brian Williams, Peachtree (Ga.) Ridge – The Atlanta area safety is also expected in town this weekend for his official visit. Williams' Peachtree Ridge team made a deep run into the playoffs, losing to eventual state runner-up Northside 20-17 in overtime in the state quarterfinals. Top Stories
