Indiana recruiting: 2015 DB Dante Redwood breaks down visit

Dante Redwood was another class of 2015 prospect from Ohio to visit Indiana over the weekend. Find out what he had to say about his trip and more.

Galion, Ohio safety Cario Davison wasn't the only under the radar Buckeye State defensive back to attend Saturday's football game.  Midview High School (Grafton,Ohio) junior Dante Redwood also made the trip to Bloomington. "The IU visit Saturday went good" Redwood told The Crimson Quarry.  "The atmosphere around the stadium and around the players was amazing.  The IU fans excitement stood out to me".

While on campus Dante had the opportunity to socialize with some of the Hoosier coaching staff.  " I spoke with the defensive backs coach Brandon Shelby.  We had a nice little talk.  He encouraged me to keep doing what I'm doing because the coaches have already taken notice and that's why I was invited".  Redwood also had the chance to catch up with coach Deland McCullough.  " He told me that he was aware of the good things that we are doing at Midview and would be in our area soon to check us out".

Last season as a sophomore for the Middies, the 5-10 160 pound Redwood racked up 35 tackles, 3 interceptions, one forced fumble and also had a fumble recovery.  He is off to a rather impressive start to his junior campaign as well.  So far this season he has 10 tackles and six pass break ups.  On offense Redwood hasn't disappointed either.  Over the first two games he currently has 130 receiving yards on nine catches for 2 touchdowns and has also returned a punt 60 yards for a score on special teams.

Programs like Akron, West Virginia, Illinois, Penn State, Northwestern, Cincinnati and Pittsburgh are starting to take notice of his talents but Saturday was a day of firsts for Redwood.  " It was my first time in Bloomington and taking a visit.  This process is all new to me".  Just cause Indiana was his first doesn't mean they will be his last.  Redwood plans to check out Cincinnati on November 9th, when they take on SMU and also would like to visit Akron sometime in the very near future.

Even with all those teams now in contact, Dante has yet to receive a scholarship offer but knows exactly how it would feel to have a chance to suit up for the Hoosiers.  " If Indiana would offer me, it would be amazing" he went on to add " a Big Ten school would suggest "BIG" things in the future, perhaps".
