Glover gone. Evans and Adkins commit to Indiana

Indiana lost one defensive back recruit over the weekend, but picked up two others.

Safety Sidney Glover of Warren, Ohio, who committed to the Hoosiers in July, has changed his mind. He has now given West Virginia a verbal commitment.

Glover told WVSports.com that he accepted Indiana’s offer because he wanted to ensure himself of a scholarship “but I had always planned to look around. I stayed in touch with them throughout the whole thing.”

Glover was one of the first two players – the other was Pittsburgh linebacker Dane Conwell – to commit to be part of Indiana’s 2007 recruiting class. He is a cousin of IU track athlete Trey Warfield, part of the 1,600 relay team that this season ran the second-fastest time in school history and finished fifth in the NCAA meet.

“(Indiana) was my first Big Ten offer,” Glover told the H-T in July, when asked why he’d picked IU. “My cousin promised me I’d have a good time there.”

The two defensive backs to commit to Indiana over the weekend were safety/quarterback Mitchell Evans (6-3, 195) from West Milton, Ohio and cornerback Chris Adkins (6-1, 175) from Indiana 5A state champ Warren Central.

Evans and Mitchell both chose Indiana over schools in the Mid-American Conference. We have phone calls into Evans and Mitchell and we’ll let you know more about them as soon as they call us back.
