Tom Crean and the Indiana coaching staff had put in a lot of work with top 20 recruit Theo Pinson over the last year. Despite being the only school to get him on campus for an official visit the in-state powerhouses were just too much for the Hoosiers to overcome. Theo Pinson of Greensboro, North Carolina opted to stay closer to home than taking his talents to the Midwest. The very talented SF made his only official visit to Indiana this past winter, but it wasn't enough to land the potential McDonald's All-American. Pinson's list whittled down to Duke, North Carolina, Indiana, Louisville and Georgetown although the latter two weren't considered much of a contender towards the end. When it all came down to it, Pinson selected the home state Tar Heels over the Hoosiers. Indiana is now left trying to recover and focusing more on the guys left on the list. Luckily it is early and there is plenty of time to go after other top prospects. I imagine that Trevon Bluiett becomes an even bigger priority than he was before.

Every Big Ten team will rely on a handful of freshmen (sometimes more than a handful) to fill key roles when the 2013 season rolls around. Which newcomers will make the biggest impact in the league? Tom Luginbill, RecruitingNation's senior national recruiting analyst, has identified five names to remember among incoming freshmen who will enroll this summer. Luginbill already singled out Ohio State cornerback Eli Apple as an early enrollee who could make a difference this fall. Two Big Ten freshmen make Luginbill's new list. Neither needs much of an introduction. Michigan running back Derrick Green is expected to compete right away for a starting job. Ranked by RecruitingNation as the No. 5 running back (No. 38 overall player) in the 2013 class, Green will be Michigan's best option in the backfield as the Wolverines go back to a more traditional pro-set scheme that will emphasize power running. No Michigan back distinguished himself this spring, and Green likely will face the most competition from Fitzgerald Toussaint, who comes off of leg surgery. Luginbill also likes the impact potential of Ohio State incoming ...

Indiana football hosts Navy this fall and will include a freshman lineman who ultimately opted to be a Hoosier rather than a Midshipman. Nate Hoff, a Solon (Ohio) High School graduate who attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School in Rhode Island this year, will matriculate at IU this fall with four full years of eligibility. A four-year starter at Solon who played in the Ohio North-South Classic all-star game, the 6-foot-2, 320-pound Hoff was also a wrestling standout and excels in the weight room. Hoff is eligible to play right away, has five years to play four college seasons, and can play on either side of the line. He recorded 24 tackles-for-loss as a Sol0n senior defensive tackle and, at offensive guard, blocked at an 84 percent efficiency rate with 77 pancakes. He also recorded 21 TFLs as a junior. Hoosier graduate assistant Ryan Stanchek coached Hoff in 2010. As a Solon junior, Hoff finished fifth in the heavyweight division at the Ohio state championships. He also lettered in track. In the weight room, he sports a bench press of 475 pounds and a squat of 600. Related content: Read more in
