Five mid-major football recruits on the line from the Class of 2020 on the verge of Power 5 interest:

1 Martes Lewis (Merrillville OL — 6-foot-7, 325 pounds) — We’ll be talking about Lewis next Signing Day the way we were talking about Ben Davis’ Ohio State-bound Dawand Jones last Signing Day … raw power and a typhoon of talent in the trenches.


2 Kyle King (New Palestine DE — 6-foot-5, 255 pounds) — On-the-rise rush end with a GINORMOUS upside at the next level.


3 Joe Solomon (Indianapolis Bishop Chatard OL — 6-foot-5, 275 pounds) — No ordinary Joe at the point of attack, a battler, a grinder, ‘ya know, a BOSS HOGG TYPE.


4 Dane Middlebrook (Brownsburg DL — 6-foot-2, 315 pounds) — Rugged run plugger who plays with a chip on his shoulder.


5 Tex Elliott (Indianapolis Cathedral OL — 6-foot-5, 285 pounds) — Brings the noise every snap, pancake prince material all the way.
