Currently, 247Sports lists the Hoosiers as “warm” in the recruiting list for Kettering (Ohio) Alter quarterback Connor Bazelak.

Furthermore, the Hoosiers have offered 37 receivers, and 247Sports gives the crimson and cream an early shot at landing 3-star Eli Pancol (Pendleton Heights, Ind.) and 3-star Kevin Barnett (Hattiesburg, Miss.).

Current wide receivers at Indiana

In the recruiting class of 2018, the Hoosiers collected two receivers in Jacolby Hewitt and Miles Marshall. Indiana also has ten more receivers on their 2018 spring roster, including two seniors that would graduate before Simmons arrives. Simmons may not be a starter immediately upon arriving to Bloomington, but he will certainly get some playing time.

According to Simmons’ twitter, he has also taken a visit to North Carolina State University to meet with Wolf Pack coach George McDonald.
