Hoosier Football Adds Another Commit

Deonte Mack

Improving the Hoosiers' in-state recruiting efforts was a top priority of Terry Hoeppner's staff, and if this week is any indication, he's done just that. On Friday, the Hoosiers received their fourth verbal commitment of the week from an in-state recruit.

Improving the Hoosiers' in-state recruiting efforts was a top priority of Terry Hoeppner's staff, and if this week is any indication, he's done just that. On Friday, the Hoosiers received their fourth verbal commitment of the week from an in-state recruit.

Deonte Mack, a 6-3, 270-pound defensive tackle from Elkhart Central, verbally committed to the Hoosiers this week, becoming the 12th commit of IU's 2006 class. He's also the fifth in-state verbal, joining Hamilton Heights' offensive lineman Cody Faulkner, Indianapolis Pike's Greg Middleton, Bloomington South's Ben Chappell and Indianapolis Arlington's Greg Brewer.

Mack, who played defensive end as a sophomore before switching to defensive tackle as a junior, is the second defensive lineman to commit in the '06 class, joining Middleton who is expected to play defensive end.

HoosierNation.com will have more on Mack's commitment in the coming days.
