Indiana adds two cornerbacks

After adding bulk to the defensive line last week, Indiana’s most recent additions brought speed to the secondary.

The Hoosiers received commitments from a pair of speedy cornerbacks in Nick Stoner of Center Grove High School in Greenwood and Kenny Mullen of Bishop Luers in Fort Wayne.

Stoner was the more sought after of the two. He passed on scholarship offers from Illinois, Iowa State, Louisville, Toledo and Western Kentucky. He said he’d also planned on attending camps at Penn State, Ohio State and Notre Dame and was receiving recruiting interest from all three powerhouses. The 6-foot-1, 155-pounder has been clocked at 4.42 seconds in the 40-yard dash and recently finished second in the state in the 100 meters with a time of 10.72. (more…)

So I slipped a little. Anyway….


This story isn’t much different then yesterday’s blog, but here’s my story for the paper on Milton Owens leaving for Illinois State.


Your chance to speak with Dustin Dopirak!

We’ll have our usual Thursday chat at 11 a.m. today, in the usual spot.

Don’t miss out on the opportunity to discuss sports with Dustin. Just don’t. Seriously. It’ll be fun.

IU soccer adds Wake Forest transfer

Well, Todd Yeagley continues grabbing top talent out of the Indianapolis area. This time, it’s in the form of a Wake Forest transfer.

Who says IU can’t pluck the best kids out of Indy anymore?

From IU:

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University men’s soccer head coach Todd Yeagley announced today that forward/midfielder Chris Estridge (Indianapolis, Ind.) will join the Hoosier program this fall.

Estridge will enter IU as a junior after spending his first two seasons at Wake Forest University. The 2008 Brownsburg High School graduate played in 19 games for the Demon Deacons last fall, scoring a pair of goals against South Carolina and Duke. He also saw time in each of Wake Forest’s NCAA Tournament matches. As a freshman in 2008 he appeared in seven matches.


Indiana DT Milton Owens transfers to Illinois State

Junior defensive tackle Milton Owens has transferred to Illinois State according to the school’s website.

The 6-foot-2, 318-pounder from Gary didn’t see any game action last season and played in just two games as a freshman. Owens said he made the move because of the lack of playing time, but also because he was a walk-on at Indiana and was hoping to secure a full scholarship somewhere else. He has a full ride at Illinois State.

“I just went into the bookstore, grabbed my books and walked out,” Owens said. “I’ve never done that before. I used to go in and say, ‘OK, I’m going to spend $250 on books.’ Now I can use that for grocery money.”

Owens said he first broached the topic with Indiana coach Bill Lynch after the Hoosiers’ final game of the season against Purdue.

“He wasn’t overjoyed about it,” Owens said. “I think he wanted me to stay, but he understood my financial situation.”

Hoosier Morning

I find that pulling this off in the morning works better if you start before you go to bed at night. Regardless …


Newly minted Herald-Times intern Robbie Levin and I examine what Nebraska will bring to the Big Ten in each of its programs. (more…)
