C.J. Robbins, a three-star defensive end, has decommitted from Indiana and given a verbal commitment to Northwestern, Rivals.com is reporting.
Robbins is the second player to switch from Indiana to Northwestern, joining Nick VanHoose.
There’s also the continuing case of Raymon Taylor, one of two four-star prospects in Indiana’s class of 2011 (Zach Shaw, a firm commit, is the other). Taylor visited Iowa over the weekend and told HawkeyeReport.com that if he did not go to Indiana, it would probably be because he is headed to Iowa.
Keep in mind that HawkeyeReport.com is an Iowa-based site and there are ways to produce quotes that seem to indicate Taylor is wavering more than he actually may be (he has told Dustin several times that he is firmly committed to Indiana).
The losses of VanHoose and Robbins leave Indiana with 19 verbal commitments in the class of 2011.
