Coaches Instilled Wallace With Confidence

Newest Indiana commitment Jordan Wallace believes he will win a Big Ten championship alongside his brother at Indiana.

Indianapolis Warren Central linebacker Jordan Wallace and his brother, wide receiver Kevin Davis, committed to Indiana today.

"It's a great feeling for me and family," Wallace said, "Knowing I'll be playing football with my brother."

The 6'1, 220-lb Wallace and 5'10, 175-lb Davis both held offers from many other schools, but they said Bloomington was the place to be.

"First off, it was the perfect fit for me and my brother. We always wanted to play together since little league. It was top on list our list to have the opportunity to play at the same school. Second was the academics. I'm going into broadcast journalist, and for my brother, the school of business is second to none."

The third piece was the coaches, which turned out to be, possibly the most important factor.

"Every coach there has won national championships. They're winners, and if you surround yourself with positive people, good things will happen."

Wallace says he and his brother actually left campus and were to the highway before they decided to turn around, come back, and commit.

In a day where the Hoosiers landed two others, Wallace and Davis say they are about to recruit more top players to Bloomington.

"Man, I'm recruiting the whole world for IU. If you want to win a Big Ten Championship, come to IU. I'm telling you, the coaching staff is unbelievable. I wouldn't have committed if I didn't believe that. I didn't wake up today knowing I was going to end my recruitment, but after talking to the coaches, something big's about to happen at Indiana. Tell every recruit that."
