A football player has decided to attend Indiana University – and play football for the Hoosiers, believe it or not:
Ralphael Green, a 6-foot-5, 325-pound offensive lineman from Sam Houston High School in San Antonio, Texas, has committed to Indiana according to a report from Matt Weaver of Peegs.com on Sunday.
Green had offers from Missouri, Colorado, Houston, New Mexico, New Mexico State and North Texas according to Rivals.com. He was also hearing from Notre Dame, Florida, Alabama, LSU, Oklahoma and Baylor. He is listed as an offensive lineman, but told Weaver the Indiana coaches have told him they want to play him on defense.
Nothing against Green, but if he was “hearing from” the Irish, Gators, Tide, Tigers, Sooners and Bears but chose Indiana, I’m guessing he didn’t like what he was hearing from them.
Disclaimer: This negativity will continue as long as the Hoosiers are a one-, two- or three-win team. At four wins, we start saying things like “Hey, this is moving in the right direction!”
