Indiana had a 5-7 season this year and had built a strong recruiting class before the school decided to make a change at the top of the football program. Kevin Wilson, who spent nine seasons as offensive coordinator for the University of Oklahoma has now stepped into Bill Lynch's vacated role and Wilson eased the concerns of at least one Hoosier prospect.
"Yes, there were (doubts)," said Hardin. "I didn't think I would still have my scholarship to Indiana," he said.
But Hardin didn't have to wait long before he heard from Coach Wilson. "I talked to him yesterday and he told me about the energy that he is going to bring to the program. He is going to make the players into winners," Hardin continued.
So is Hardin still part of the Indiana family?
"Yes, everything is on schedule," he said. "I think (Wilson) is going to make a positive change at Indiana and lead us to a Big Ten Championship," he finished.
