No 4-star players in this class for the Hoosiers, but that’s o.k. because what they did haul in on Wednesday was highly impressive to me. Highlighting the class is composite 3-star (4-star by 247Sports rankings) safety Tyler Green, who the Hoosiers got out of Maryland powerhouse DeMatha Catholic.

Getting that pipeline to open up could not only help the much beleaguered defense, but this class was much more than opening things up for future recruiting classes. Indiana continues to slowly grow in to a sleeper on the recruiting trail. Winning a battle against Wisconsin and Northwestern for in-state product Isaac James was a huge one for Kevin Wilson and the Hoosiers coaching staff.

James will play wide receiver at Indiana, and they can really use a youthful injection at the position because the old days of quality and experienced players at wide receiver are over.

Additionally the Hoosiers did a great job of finding options at quarterback in No. 35-ranked dual-threat Andre Brown and No. 18-ranked pro-style Austin King.

This team continues to find ways to win battles in states like Georgia, Maryland, Illinois and Indiana — all states with some very nice talent in them. From top to bottom this is the strongest class the Hoosiers have put together on Kevin Wilson.
