The state of Indiana is known as a hotbed for high school basketball talent, but there are always some fine football prospects in the state as well. The Hoosier State's 2011 class is no different. Offensive lineman Kiaro Holts (Indianapolis, Ind./Warren Central), the No. 143 prospect on the ESPNU 150, heads the list of Hoosier State stars. The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder has an impressive list of over two dozen scholarship offers which he has narrowed down to about a dozen or so. The list of schools he is still considering includes Florida, USC, North Carolina, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Arkansas, Purdue, Michigan State, Oregon, UCLA and Auburn. Nick Martin (Indianapolis, Ind./Bishop Chatard) is another talented in-state offensive line prospect who has plenty of great choices. The 6-5, 265-pounder is considering offers from Indiana, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Minnesota, Northwestern, Boston College, Cincinnati, Tennessee and UCLA, among others.
