Indiana lands CB Kates after all


Junior college cornerback Andre Kates was the first player to commit to Indiana for the 2010 class back in May. He was the last to sign with the Hoosiers.

After reportedly wavering on his decision, Kates told Scout.com that he will play for the Hoosiers this fall. He'll provide a big boost for an Indiana secondary that loses three starters, including top cover man Ray Fisher.

Indiana had a ton of early commitments this year, and while the Hoosiers have lost a few key commits, including defensive end Jibreel Black, their overall class is decent.
