08/13/2013 - OTHER INDIANA PROSPECTS WORTH WATCHING: WR Kofi Hughes (6-1, 215, 4.54)...Like Latimer, Hughes flashes a good size/athleticism combo and good ball skills. Is raw as a route-runner though, and will need to display better overall consistency as a senior to warrant a pick. Caught 43 passes, including 3 TDs as a junior. - Derek Stephens, NFLDraftScout.com
