The big catch for the Boilers this year was four-star guard Ryan Watson, a Maryland kid who chose them over offers from his home-state Terrapins, Penn State, Michigan, Wisconsin and others. Two wide receivers, Jordan Woods and Danny Anthrop, aren?t big names, but have big time ability to go with strong senior years.

Woods, an Ann Arbor native is smooth and a knack for big plays, while Anthrop regularly ran his forty in the 4.3-4.4 range. The Boilers were also able to keep two of Indiana?s top defenders at home in safety Jordan Shine, who has a chance to play early, and Jimmy Herman, a 6?4 high school safety who is expected to move to linebacker in college.
