Indiana signed 22 recruits Wednesday, but their most important additions may already be on campus.

Running back Jordan Howard and receiver Marqui Hawkins enrolled in school in January after transferring from Alabama-Birmingham. They will be eligible immediately because the Blazers dropped their football program.

Howard finished seventh in the Football Bowl Subdivision in yards rushing per game and is the likely replacement for Tevin Coleman, a first-team All-American.

At 6-foot-2, 210 pounds, Hawkins is a big, sure-handed receiver.

Coach Kevin Wilson also improved his depth at quarterback, signing six players who played the position in high school. But the only projected to be there in college is Austin King, who threw for more than 4,400 yards in his final two seasons at Alpharetta High School in Georgia.
