Jibreel Black is honest, confident and ready to win.
“(Indiana) is the perfect opportunity for me to make a difference,” Black said during a phone conversation. “For me to be a groundbreaker at Indiana University.”
Black will likely play defensive end for the Hoosiers, and, with the loss of Jammie Kirlew and Greg Middleton after next season, expects to see playing time early.
But Black (6-foot-2.5, 265 pounds) seems to also see himself as the player who can move mountains — like making Indiana football a winner.
“I am ready to come in, have a winning attitude and win some games,” Black said. “I don’t care about the history of the school. It’s about now. … And hopefully, we’re going to win some championships.
“Hopefully, I can be the one that sets it where other recruits aren’t going to be ashamed to come here. I can be that spark.”
Indiana assistant coach Mike Yeager, Black’s lead recruiter, told Black earlier Monday that he will make a difference at Indiana.
“I can be the Michael Vick of Indiana University,” Black said.
Black was also considering Cincinnati, Michigan, Michigan State and Kentucky.
Jibreel Black, considered by Scout.com the 16th best defensive tackle in the 2010 class, committed to Indiana today. Rivals.com ranks him the No. 23 strongside defensive end in the class.
Black is the younger brother of current Hoosier Larry Black.
