A few weeks ago, we took a look at the top five linebackers in Indiana for the Class of 2022. As noted then, I want to take a look outside of the state’s top five and discuss the less-heralded stalwarts in the middle of the defense. These are guys who have a chip on their shoulder attitude to go along with their elite talent. Let’s take a look at five exceptional Hoosier state linebackers who are preparing to have standout Senior seasons in the fall.

Ben Davis High School has an outstanding linebacker who comes in at number 46 overall in our Class of 2022 rankings: Keoke Toomer Keoke Toomer 6'1" | LB Ben Davis | 2022 State IN . Toomer is an extremely instinctive linebacker. He knows where the hole is going to be and where exactly he needs to fill in order to blow up the play. This could explain his total of 99 tackles a season ago. Toomer demonstrates a tremendous ability to cover from sideline-to-sideline. He can also get after the quarterback as shown by his seven sacks last year. Toomer is a smart linebacker who has the qualities to lead a defense for an entire career at the next level.
