Ruston, La., junior cornerback Kentrell Brice knew offer No. 1 would come eventually.
He just had no idea when and from whom.
On Monday afternoon, the suspense ended when Indiana pulled the trigger.
"I was shocked," Brice said. "But grateful at the same time."
Right now, Brice is just getting to know the Hoosiers.
"I like them," Brice said. "I'm gradually learning more and more about them."
Which program might be next to offer. According to Brice, it could be one from the Southeastern Conference.
"It depends on how I do at a one-day camp there in June," Brice said. "I think they will offer. They said they like the way I play. They think I'm the type of guy they offer. They want me to come up there and see how I backpedal and turn and run. Things like that. Their cornerbacks coach came by the school [Wednesday]."
Besides Arkansas and Indiana, Brice said he also is hearing from Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, Louisiana Tech, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ole Miss, Texas A&M and Tulane.
A two-year starter, the 6-foot, 172-pound Brice also is a standout in the high jump, long jump and triple jump. According to Brice, the skills utilized in those events also are what make him an effective cornerback.
"It helps me when the ball is high, and when the receiver is 6-3 or 6-4 and taller than me," Brice said. "It helps me leap up with them, and I have the ability to knock the ball down."
