RB Myles Graham set for Big Ten

8/9/2012

The Indiana Hoosiers have dipped into Florida and secured a commitment from two-star running back Myles Graham (Hollywood, Fla./Chaminade Madonna).

"It was just a good fit for me," Graham told ESPN.com on Thursday. "I really like the coaching staff and I think it is a great school. I also felt like I could play right away there."

Other schools that made offers to Graham include Akron, Bowling Green, Ohio, Tulane, Western Illinois and Western Kentucky also extended scholarship offers to Graham. Boston College and Illinois were among the others showing interest.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound prospect rushed for 852 yards and 12 touchdowns on 74 carries as a junior despite missing four games with an ankle injury.

Indiana now has six players on board for 2013. Graham is the first RB commit for the Hoosiers.
