Released by IU this afternoon – the Hoosiers have signed Fort Wayne wide receiver  Damarlo Belcher.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana head coach Bill Lynch announced Damarlo Belcher has signed a National Letter of Intent and will attend Indiana University in the fall of 2008.

Belcher, a wide receiver from North Side High School in Fort Wayne, Ind., stands 6-5 and weighs 210 pounds. The big target earned second team Summit Athletic Conference (SAC) honors and set the North Side single-season record with 688 receiving yards last year. Belcher played for head coach Casey Kolkman and earned three letters.

"We are excited to have Damarlo join our football program," Lynch said. "He is an outstanding two-sport athlete who comes from a great athletics conference in Fort Wayne. Damarlo will be a great addition to our program."

In addition, he earned two letters in basketball and collected first team SAC and all-area honors in 2007. Belcher also claimed the team's rebounding award in the same season.

Sounds like James Hardy 2.0 to me.

“Sounds like James Hardy 2.0 to me.” – Joe

Not even close. Decent receiver, all the tools to develop, but not the natural talent that Hardy had in High School.

Hardy was an All-SAC and All-State receiver.

We may need him for the basketball program next year also (if he has a good attitude and can stay out of trouble).

Damarlo is a very gifted and nice kid. I was one of his high school basketball coaches. He is not Hardy, but is a very pure athlete and I think we will compliment the football program (and maybe basketball?) nicely.
