IUFB Adds Defensive End

New, 3 comments

Indiana football has added their 20th new player for 2015, strong 3-star defensive end Brandon Wilson.

On the same night he decommitted from Virginia, Brandon Wilson wasted little time in choosing a new school. Late Sunday, the defensive end out of West Orange High School in Charlotte, NC, chose the Hoosiers. Wilson cited more comfort with the coaches and the system as his main reasons for switching schools. Wilson adds depth, skill, and size to a defensive line that has struggled to get pressure on the opposing quarterback.

While he will likely not play right away, he has the tenacity that coaches want from their defensive ends, and is quick off the ball when given the opportunity to rush the passer. His 6'4" frame coupled with 240 pounds of size allows him that aforementioned quickness but gives him the ability to overpower smaller tackles and guards.

Indiana has become quite adept at getting players to commit after they decommit from their previous schools or leave their schools altogether. Brandon Wilson joins Tyler Green, Austin King, Jordan Howard, and Marqui Hawkins in that department. Check out his senior highlight reel here.
