The 3-star safety/outside linebacker hybrid may be cut out for the Husky role in the Hoosier defense that is currently occupied by Marcelino Ball. Casey was ranked 104th among safeties nationally and 120th among recruits in the state of Georgia.
The two-sport athlete (he also plays basketball) made 120 tackles last season. That’s a lot of tackles! That number included a pair of tackles for a loss. He also deflected 5 passes and picked off 5 passes. Also of note, Casey kicked the ball off 7 times for Alexander High with a long of 60 yards and 4 touchbacks.
The 6’1”, 209-pound recruit also had offers from rutger, West Virginia, Iowa State, and Central Florida among others. He originally committed to the Hoosiers on June 20 after a unofficial visit to Bloomington on June 3.
Casey will join a defensive unit that will be trying to recover from the loss of some key players from 2017 such as Tegray Scales and Rashard Fant. Here are the highlights from his high school career:
