It's a big BOOM for Indiana -- as the Hoosiers go in and take a 3-star defensive tackle out of Mississippi from home state schools

There's been no boom yet from Kevin Wilson, but this tweet seems as clear as day.

On the heels of visiting Bloomington, 3-star Mississippi lineman Jerome Johnson has committed to Indiana.

Johnson had offers and interest from Ole Miss and was projected by the 247Sports Crystal Ball to head to Mississippi State, but it's unclear if that had interest had softened in recent weeks.The big 6-4, 280-pounder out of Bassfield High in Bassfield, MS projects to either side of the ball -- he's played both offensive guard and defensive tackle in high school. It's a huge add for Indiana's class if Johnson lines up in the defensive trenches -- the Hoosiers have lost three southern defensive line commitments to SEC interest in the last two months.

Johnson is the 18th member of Indiana's 2016 class, and the 16th member of the class with a 3-star rating or better. Check out his full highlights from Hudl below.
