Indiana needed a safety to replace the loss of Antonio Allen.
They'll have to wait a season -- but they'll pick one up that was deemed even better than the hyped Ben Davis recruit was coming out of high school a few seasons ago.
Former Ohio State safety Jayme Thompson, who did not see action with the Buckeyes during his only season in Columbus, committed to Kevin Wilson's Hoosiers over Maryland today. He's Wilson's 9th commit for the 2016 class, and a three-star recruit per 247sports.
Thompson transferred to Iowa Western Community College in 2014, and posted 81 combined tackles at 2 INTs over the course of his first season of junior college football.
Predictably, Kevin Wilson is excited.
Thompson also held offers from Miami and Iowa State. He'd also visited Ole Miss, but was not offered.
