Cleveland running back committed to IU

Devine Redding, a 5-foot-10, 200-pound tailback from Glenville High School in Cleveland, has been verbally committed to Indiana for a few weeks, he said Sunday.

Redding didn’t have any other scholarship offers, he said, but that he had been in contact with most of the teams in the Big Ten, especially Michigan State. However, Indiana had been after him the longest and Redding said he believes it’s the best fit.

“They recognized my talent when I was a sophomore, and that played a big part,” Redding said. “The coaches, the relationships, the players, their offense, and just the feeling that when I’m there I’m at home.”

Redding rushed for over 1,100 yards last season at Mineral Ridge High School before transferring to Glenville this year. By rule, he had to sit out the first five games, but he’s scored a touchdown in each of the three games he’s played so far.




  1. Thank goodness Dustin is back with some good news. Never leave us on an IU football weekend again! I don’t know what was more disturbing, Miller’s “shot in the foot” comment or his Justin Bieber light haircut.

  2. Redding is probably a decent running back but recruiting some defensive stalwarts might be a priority, one would think.

  3. Just so the record is before your very eyes, IU has 14 commits for 2014, 7 on the O and 7 on the D. The 2 highest ranked are a DT and an LB.
