Indiana signs juco cornerback Kiles

Indiana loses several difference makers on defense this year, and head coach Bill Lynch wants to fill the gaps with some experienced players.

The Hoosiers today signed their second junior college defender for 2010 in Lenyatta Kiles, a 6-foot, 190-pound cornerback from Cerritos College in California. Kiles joins fellow juco transfer Jeff Thomas, who signed with Indiana earlier this month.

Kiles earned all-conference honors this season with two interceptions, 11 pass breakups and 30 tackles. He'll be a candidate to fill the starting spot vacated by graduating senior Ray Fisher.
