Indiana football recruiting 2013: Three new commitments in October, all from Ohio

Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

The Hoosiers still have work to do if they want to climb out of the bottom quartile of the conference, though.

It's been a busy October for the Hoosiers, who added three new recruits to their 2014 class. That flurry of moves hasn't moved the needle much, though -- Indiana's class of 14 still ranks 60th in the country according to the 247Sports composite, and ninth in the Big Ten. The Hoosiers are currently in a tight battle for that ninth spot, barely edging out Illinois this month. A couple of well-timed commitments from either side could change that.

The first new Hoosier to commit was Cleveland (Ohio) St. Ignatius safety Dameon Willis. A top-100 player at his position this year, the three-star Willis has fantastic size to boot. His reported 6'0, 208-pound frame should fill in nicely once he arrives in Bloomington.

Following Willis were two more commitments from Ohioans: first from Dayton (Ohio) Beavercreek linebacker Airius Moore, considered a top-40 linebacker this year, and then from Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville running back Devine Redding. Both are three-star players on the 247Sports composite, with Redding becoming Indiana's second-highest rated recruit in the 2014 class. A mere .0004 on the composite separates Redding from Cincinnati (Ohio) Summit Country Day's Michael Barwick, a three-star defensive tackle who leads the Hoosier class.

Redding will have plenty of blocking coming with him, as well -- Indiana has commitments from three offensive linemen in this class, including St. Petersburg (Fla.) Admiral Farragut Academy's Delroy Baker and three-star guard DeAndre Herron, who will be transferring over from Iowa Western Community College.
