Ron Thompson of Eastpointe (Mich.) Southfield thought he had cut his list to just three schools, but Indiana has turned the heat up, forcing the three-star tight end to add another program to the mix.

"They've been talking to me a lot," Thompson said of Indiana. "They told me I could take my time, and I'm not trying to rush into a decision."

Thompson, who is 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, said he was previously down to just Michigan, Syracuse and Maryland before Indiana put on the full-court press for him.
