Hoosiers sign 26
The number is 26. That's how many Indiana officials confirmed this morning had signed letter of intent to be a part of the Hoosier freshman class this coming season for football coach Kevin Wilson.
Coming into today Peegs.com had confirmed 23 expected signings. The day brought news of four new additions and one subtraction.
Derrian Meminger - 6'4, 270-pound DT out of Sparta, Georgia. First reported on Peegs.com, Meminger's signing was the first significant surprise of the day. Chose Indiana over Cincinnati and Louisville.
Robert McCray III - 6'3, 245-pound OLB/DE out of Conyers, Georgia. Made his decision final just this morning at his Rockdale County High School. Made his official visit to IU over the weekend. Had offers from Georgia Tech, Boise State, East Carolina, Ohio, Southern and Valdosta State. Peegs.com story on McCray's signing.
Zeke Walker - 6'2, 205-pound safety out of Cayce, South Carolina Rumored for awhile as a commitment but the door may have really opened for him when Christian Campbell, another safety, surprised everyone with a Penn State commitment this past weekend.
Chris Covington - 6'2, 215-pounds DB/LB out of Chicago (All Raby HS), Illinois. We featured Covington last month but his signing came as a surprise. New DC Brian Knorr said today that Covington could end up at safety or grow into an outside linebacker.
During the morning word broke that former commit Airius Moore, a linebacker out of Beaverton, Ohio, had flipped his commitment to North Carolina State.

"We are pleased with the way our class came together," said Indiana head coach Kevin Wilson in a press release. "With a few years under our belt we have gotten comfortable within the Midwest region, our ties in Indiana and the surrounding states. We continue to do well in Georgia and Florida. Our strategy of how we sell our school and how we sell our program has really given us the chance to land back-to-back strong classes. On paper, they are the best back-to-back classes in school history. But now we need to take that paper product, work with it in the years to come and keep building our program."
