Week recap...

Indiana WR James Hardy was one of three college football successes this week. The Hoosiers' junior signed a pair of index cards care of the IU athletic department in 47 days. Hardy has been named Second Team All-Big Ten each of his first two seasons, accumulating over 1600 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns during that time. Coming into the season, he needed just ten more scores to tie the all-time school record. In the Hoosiers' opening game last weekend against Indiana State, Hardy hauled in 3 passes - 2 for touchdowns - and totaled 153 yards on the day.

Also signing was standout DB Dwight Lowery from San Jose State. The senior signed a pair of index cards care of the SJSU athletic department in just 22 days. Last fall, Lowery became the first Spartans player in school history to be named to two First Team All-America lists in the same season. Those honors followed a campaign that saw him set the SJSU record with 9 interceptions, the second highest total in the country in 2006. Lowery also averaged more than 8 yards per punt return for the Spartans last fall.

Louisiana-Monroe RB Calvin Dawson rounds out the week's activity. The senior signed a pair of index cards care of the ULM athletic department in 41 days. A Doak Walker Award candidate, Dawson earned First Team All-Sun Belt honors last fall after leading the conference with over 1200 yards on the ground, a total that ranked him among the top 20 backs in the country. Three of his seven 100-yard games came against SEC foes Alabama, Arkansas, and Kentucky.

All three players also completed questionnaires, which can be viewed on the message board. In addition, you can check out the exact addresses used to contact these players by taking a look at our Success Database.
