Add Lemuel Neely-Watley to the list of talented Michigan prospects Tom Allen has added to the 2020 recruiting class.
The three-star wide receiver with good speed and better hands committed to Indiana on Sunday, picking the Hoosiers over the hometown school Michigan State. Neely-Watley becomes the second Michigan native to commit to Indiana.
Earlier in the year, IU landed a pledge from four-star receiver Rashawn Williams out of Detroit, the highest-rated high school prospect to commit to Indiana. Neely-Watley comes from Harper Woods.
“First I’d like to thank God for my abilities, my family for believing in me throughout this process, Coach Oden for guidance, and lastly I’d like to thank all the schools that have reached out and talked to me,” Neely-Watley wrote in his announcement on Twitter. “Blessed to announce that I’ll be committing to Indiana University #LEO.”
Neely-Watley is ranked as the No. 27 player out of the state of Michigan and is the No. 156 receiver in the 2020 class. He received nine total offers, which included five offers from Power Five schools. He ultimately chose Indiana over Michigan State, Iowa State, Kentucky and Syracuse.
Indiana now has seven commitments in the 2020 class, six of which are from Indiana or Michigan. The Hoosiers rank 11th in the B1G and 67th nationally.
