Chalk up another recruit

Colin Rodkey, a 6-foot-4, 260-pound offensive lineman from Monroeville, Pa., announced a verbal commitment Friday afternoon to play football at Indiana.

Rodkey’s decision brings IU’s total of verbal commitments for its 2009 recruiting class to 15. The 52nd-ranked guard in the nation according to reportedly had scholarship offers from West Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina State, Minnesota and Army.

Rodkey plays for Gateway High School’s prominent program, which has recorded seven straight winning seasons, a Top 10 USA Today national ranking in 2007, five unbeaten seasons, five one-loss seasons and a pair of mythical state titles.


  1. We now have 11 3-star recruits according to Rivals. The coaches are doing a great job.

  2. Yeah, we just need to land some more athletes or defensive guys now.

    Scout is not as high on some of these guys as Rivals is, and from what I hear, Scout is a lot better at judging football talent. I believe last years recruiting class is better than the current one on Scout.

  3. Scout has us with 7 3-stars this year, and they had us with 7 3-stars in the 08 class as well. Either way, its a good class.

  4. THe shear number of recruits so far is impressive. Only a handful of Big Ten schools have put together a class equivalent to IU’s so far.

    They will only sign maybe two more guys. A DE & maybe a RB if the right one accepts.

  5. The fact that we’re even having this conversation indicates an upgrade in IU’s football recruiting. I mean, since Bill Mallory was coach, when have IU football fans had much reason to evaluate the ratings of recruits?? This guy has to be pretty good if WVU and Maryland had offered scholarships. Good job coach Lynch!!

  6. Chris,

    Excellent job on the website.

    Now get a haircut, will ya?
