Miami DL Passmore commits to IU

Defensive lineman Jeramy Passmore joined the 2019 Indiana University recruiting class with his commitment to the Hoosiers on Friday.

“I Thank God for all the Gifts he has given me and the people he has put into my life that helped me get to where I am today. After a lot of prayer and discussing things with my family i have decided to commit to the University of Indiana. Go Hoosiers!!” Passmore said via social media.

The 6-foot-2, 250-pounder out of Columbus High School in Miami, Fla., is a three-star recruit according to, which also currently lists the former defensive end as a defensive tackle.

He is the fourth commitment for IU in the 2019 class and chose the Hoosiers over offers from Maryland, Baylor, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, Air Force, Florida Atlantic, Brown, Colgate, Dartmouth, Harvard and Yale, among others.


  1. He is a great pickup for IU football. A smart kid with offers from Ivy League schools and knows how important an education at IU Business School is. He looks very good on tape but he needs to gain weight over the next few years although a 2019 recruit has time.

  2. I do like this Florida pipeline that TA has developed. Even their 3 star guys are good.

    1. Actually that pipeline was initiated during the Wilson years. Wilson’s OL coach Greg Frey was from Florida. Played his college FB in his home state. He had solid connections with HS’s there. He is now the OL Coach and run game coordinator for his Alma Mater FSU. Allen has successfully leveraged that earlier prospecting into roots growing wider and deeper.

      1. HC,
        We’ve had this discussion before and I will agree that Wilson & Frey opened up the Florida pipeline successfully. That being said, I do not want to diminish TA’s own roots in Florida and the other areas of the south either. Yes, I think he is building upon the foundation already laid by his predecessors. However, with or without Wilson & Frey’s work in the state, Allen would have successfully done the same thing. I agree he is growing those earlier efforts wider and deeper. I think he is also moving much faster than otherwise would have been possible as a result of Wilson & Frey’s work. TA may have not drilled the well and primed the pump, but he sure is pumping the water.

  3. There is no water until the desert wasteland produced by decades of losing converts to plus .500 records in the Big East and something other than the mirage of a ‘waterfall’ in repeated ‘Urinal Cake’ Bowls. There hasn’t even been an oasis of plus .500 conference success since the Mallory years.
    The only pumping is air and empty hype until the well produces victories against opponents that matter(e.g. the top four to six teams in the conference).

  4. I don’t know about the same discussion but you’ve done a fine job supporting my post. Besides Hale, Westbrook, Brown and Crawford the upper classes of the roster are well represented by the impactful recruiting work Wilson and staff did in Ga., Fla. and the rest of the South. It was targeted as a recruiting priority. It was near nonexistent at IU before that.

  5. The question is will IU fb become a shifted geographical team from many Indiana and surrounding recruits to many Florida and surrounding deeper south recruits that produce a 4, 5, 6 wins and 6, 7, 8 loses?

  6. If the opponent’s offense decides to pass more, watch out for Passmore!

    Passmore is also be a good name for a brand of laxative….though not suggested to inhibit a running game.

  7. IU picked up an OL man from TN this afternoon :
    Matthew Bedford 6’6 260 and a high rated 3 star OT.

    This is what I would like to see the B1G do with scheduling as it would balance out the conference schedule and have every team playing each other every couple of years.

    Most college football conferences have divisions. The SEC started the trend in 1992, when it added a conference championship and needed a way to pick two reps. It made sense at the time.

    But several conferences have grown to 14 teams. That’s way too many for a division setup, since even a nine-game schedule means some teams go years without playing alleged conference rivals.

    Really, every conference should get rid of divisions and just assign a few annual rivalries, which would mean plenty of obvious benefits.

    Since each conference has its own unique issues, here are custom proposals for the entire Power 5. Most non-power conferences could also adapt one of these.

    2. In the Big Ten, teams would see each other even more often.
    The B1G’s nine-game schedule (as in, one more conference game than the SEC) means even non-rivals would play three out of every five years, in our system.

    Here are the annual rivalries chosen by a couple Big Ten fans, along with an explanation for the whole thing, including how this greatly improves schedule balance:

    Team Permanent opponents
    Illinois northwestern osu purdue
    Indiana purdue northwestern rutgers
    Iowa minnesota nebraska wisconsin
    Maryland northwestern psu rutgers
    Michigan minnesota msu osu
    Michigan State michigan nebraska psu
    Minnesota iowa michigan wisconsin
    Nebraska iowa msu wisconsin
    Northwestern illinois indiana maryland
    Ohio State illinois michigan psu
    Penn State maryland msu osu
    Purdue illinois indiana rutgers
    Rutgers rutgers indiana maryland northwestern
    Wisconsin wisconsin iowa minnesota nebraska
    Michigan State fans don’t like the idea of dropping Ohio State, but we’ve heard few major complaints otherwise.

  8. This article condenses the B1G proposed schedule published a couple of years ago by the same outfit and which I posted here back then. It’s a great idea. Some of the rivalries seem artificial, but 1) if they stick with it then the rivalries will seem natural after a decade or so, and 2) in the meantime we will have something to blab, argue, and whine about, which is 3/4 of the fun of being a sports kibbitzer.
