This is a flip that you don’t see too often in the college football world.
On Friday, four-star athlete Juwan Burgess (6-foot-0, 185 pounds, Tampa, Fla.) announced that he was decommitting from USC, ending what had been a four-month long pledge. Instead, Burgess has now announced a commitment to Indiana.
A Florida recruit flipping from USC to Indiana may seem pretty odd, but there is actually some sense behind it; Burgess is now the third member of his high school to commit to the Hoosiers for 2017. Burgess is the highest-rated of those three, and he is now Indiana’s highest overall commitment.
Indiana now how 20 members as part of their 2017 recruiting class.
