Indiana picks up interest in Florida back

As the high school season progresses, so does the recruiting outlook for many high school seniors. Lakeland (Fla.) Kathleen's Terrell Colston made a commitment in the early summer with Troy but then immediately backed out. Now, with three games under his belt, the all-purpose back is still weighing his options as some new schools have picked up interest.

"Georgia Southern offered me and Indiana has been talking to me a lot," Colston said. "Indiana calls me just about every day so I've got a pretty good relationship with those coaches. I love Indiana and it's an up and coming program."

Colston is taking his time with his decision but already knows what will and won't play a factor in his recruitment.

"I don't really have a time frame right now," he said. "I'm just gonna weight my options and see what opportunities I have. I want to go somewhere where I can play early and distance isn't a factor at all."

With distance not playing a factor, Indiana's interest of late has been encouraging to the running back.

"If I get an Indiana offer, they'll most likely go to the top of my list," he said.

Despite IU's interest, Colston is still is keeping his eye on Troy and got a chance to see the Trojans take on SEC competition in Gainseville.

"I went to see Troy play Florida earlier this season," he said. "I had already been to the Troy campus so it was good just to see the college experience."

As a junior, the 5-foot-6 159-pounder ran for 788 yards and 12 touchdowns.
