And then there were two. Figure about 20 or so more to go.
Yes, Indiana football is back in the recruiting news now that offensive lineman Kirk Harris has orally committed to the Hoosiers. He’s a 6-5, 278-pounder from Stilwell, Kansas.
Harris joins linebacker Mike Replogle of Ohio, who committed last month.
Harris committed after visiting IU and its spring practice. He met with all the coaches, including new offensive line coach Mo Moriarity.
Harris isn’t ranked by any of the recruiting services, but considering the schools that were recruiting him (Nebraska, Michigan, Oklahoma State, Mississippi, Kansas and Kansas State), the talent must be there. He’s started 24 straight games for Blue Valley High School. He’s also a regional discus champion and that multi-sport nature fits what coach Bill Lynch and his staff like to see in recruits.
Players can’t sign national letters of intent until next February. Lynch and his staff can’t comment on them until they do sign. In the meantime, they're busy with spring practice, which ends April 17 with the spring game.
