Ben Davis DT LeShaun Minor headed to Indiana #iufb

The Indiana University football team picked up its second 2017 commitment in as many days on Monday, as defensive lineman LeShaun Minor from Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis tweeted his pledge to the Hoosiers.

Minor is listed as a 6-foot-3, 255-pound defensive tackle, but can play both inside and outside on the line. He is a three-star prospect according to both 247 Sports and Rivals, who collected 61 tackles (13 for loss), three sacks, two forced fumbles, an interception for a touchdown and six batted passes as a junior at Ben Davis. He counted Ball State, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa State among his other offers.

This is the third in-state 2017 recruit for head coach Kevin Wilson’s Hoosiers, as Minor joins Avon defensive back Bryant Fitzgerald and Carmel defensive end Britt Beery.

  1. Minor is a good get for IUFB and I hope he follows through on his commitment. Earlier he said he was waiting on OSU to offer but I hope he is now committed to IU. Add him to Reece committing and the defensive future is looking better.

  2. Exactly, These are and have been the type of players Wilson and Co. target regularly. The long term contract and last seasons success is starting to pay off landing a few more of those targets. Even before the new contract QB Lagow became 1 of those targets who committed.

  3. HC you are right as Minor’s Head Coach says he is now up to 293 pounds; I wish Scott Price would get his figures correct. Minor is a player that could see playing time as a freshman in 2017.

  4. Wow… he has the quickness of a defensive end. If he can stay quick at 293, he could start as a freshman. But 2017 is a long way away. Hope an OSU, MSU, Michigan or Notre Dame doesn’t take him away.

  5. 123, I hope Minors comment bout staying close to home and playing for the state team is really what is important to him. It would be a shame for IU to lose a player like this that they need so much. He does play to high right now and can get away with it but he will have to learn to play lower or B1G OLs will dominate him.
