Raheem Layne seemed long destined for Minnesota, until Tom Allen and Noah Joseph were able to flip the Florida cornerback within the final few days of the 2016-17 recruiting period.
Now, he’s headed to Bloomington after inking with the Hoosiers today.
HOW HE STACKS UP
Layne, out of Sebastian River High School in Sebastian, FL, was a 3-star corner with offers from Virginia Tech, Iowa, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, and, of course, Minnesota. He’s fairly new to Indiana’s radar, and I’m not going to lie to you: I don’t know a ton about him other than that. Fun!

WHAT IT MEANS FOR INDIANA
Another big (for corners) corner. Size is valuable in the secondary, and you’ll notice on film that Layne’s physicality and athleticism also jump off the page. It’s also yet another commitment for Indiana from the state of Florida, which is never a bad place to take footing.
