Indiana's Bernard Pollard

Bernard Pollard is considered one of the hardest hitting defensive prospects in the nation. Pollard gives a new top five. Is there a leader?

"Nothing much has changed," said safety Bernard Pollard. "I'm still looking at Michigan, Purdue, Indiana, Michigan State and Texas A&M.

"Wisconsin and Ohio State are in there as well but I wouldn't put them in my top five.

"I don't have a leader. Coach Moeller (Michigan), coach Tiller (Purdue) and coach DiNardo (Indiana) have all called this week.

"I haven't set up any official visits yet."

Bernard, a 6-foot-2, 207-pounder, from Ft. Wayne (Ind.) Southside is living up to his reputation as ferocious hitter.

In two games this year, Bernard has 35 tackles and 11 forced fumbles.

"We're 0-2 right now but we should be 2-0. We could have won both of those games." Pollard said.

Pollard was an all-state selection as a junior. All favorites have offered except Michigan State and Purdue.
