Indiana chases speed, Purdue gets familiar names

  •  

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - The Indiana Hoosiers got exactly what they wanted from this year's recruiting class -- speed and big hitters.

Purdue wound up with some familiar names.

On Wednesday, the Hoosiers signed nearly two dozen players including hard-hitting defensive back Antonio Allen from Indianapolis and one of the nation's fastest sprinters in Anthony Young out of Lakewood St. Edward in Ohio.

Purdue coach Darrell Hazell's first recruiting class was expected to include Keith Byars II, son of the former Ohio State running back; linebacker Garrett Hudson, son of the Boilermakers new defensive coordinator, Greg Hudson; and defensive end Jake Replogle, who had three older brothers play with the rival Hoosiers.
