IU Football: Lemuel Neeley-Watley Becomes Seventh Class of 2020 Commit

Score another win for Indiana in Big Ten enemy territory as the Hoosiers land a package deal from Detroit.

After four-star receiver Rashawn Williams committed to Indiana back in April, his former high school teammate Lemuel Neeley-Watley has decided to join him in Bloomington.

Neeley-Watley announced his decision on Twitter:

The 5-foot-11, 170 pound Neeley-Watley played both ways in high school and at various camps and other offseason events.  It isn’t clear which side of the ball he will play on in college, although cornerback appears to be the more likely path.

Neeley-Watley was teammates with Williams at Detroit King High School for his junior season.  The pair helped to lead King to the Class 3A state title.  Neeley-Watley had six tackles in the state title game.

Neeley-Watley will play for Harper Woods for his senior season.  He is a three-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite.

According to Rivals, Indiana was the first school to offer Neely-Watley in December of 2017. His official visit to Indiana was his first, and it ended up being the only one he took.

Neeley-Watley spurned in state Michigan State, as well as Kentucky, Iowa State, Syracuse, and Cincinnati, among others.  He had been projected by both Rivals and 247Sports as a Michigan State commit.
