If Indiana is trying to establish a pipeline from Georgia to Bloomington, this an interesting start.
According to a tweet from Kenyatta Watson, a former coach at Grayson High School in Loganville, Ga., the Hoosiers on Wednesday offered football scholarships to nine Class of 2019 players. What’s more, those nine players all play at the same place: Grayson High School.

According to 247Sports, of the nine players, one is rated as a 5-star player, three are rated as 4-star players and four are already committed to Florida State.
OLB Owen Pappoe is the biggest name on the list, rated the No. 1 outside linebacker and fourth-best player in 2019 per the 247Sports rankings.
After Pappoe, OL Wanya Morris, ATH Ronald Thompkins and OLB Kevin Harris are rated as 4-star players. Morris and Thompkins have already committed to Florida State.
A pair of 3-star prospects, DT Tru Thompson and DB Kenyatta Watson II, have also committed to the Seminoles.
The other three players, OL Trente Jones, WR Kenyon Jackson and DB Jalen Alexander, do not yet have ratings on 247Sports. However, there’s a very good chance they could come this time next season.
All the aforementioned players helped Grayson to a 14-1 record and a 6A state championship last season.
As it currently stands, Indiana has four commits in its Class of 2019. All four of those players — ATH Cam Jones, DB Elijah Rodgers, S Jordan Jusevitch and RB Kristian Pechac — are 3-star prospects.
