Here's what I found with a simple google search:
Mountain Storm Martial Arts (Judo) - http://www.mtnstmjudo.com/
It's fairly far away (30mi) but looks pretty legit.
Webster's Mixed Martial Arts (MMA?) - No website
Out in Muncie...no idea on this one
Judan Judo (Judo) - http://judanjudo.datapitstop.us/
About 9 mi away in Portland, IN. They seem to have a few Judo instructors with competitive backgrounds.
That's all I'm going to give you at this point. My computer is freaking slow as hell and this stuff is pretty easy to find with a google search. Just show up to the places and go through a class and see if you like it.

I am guessing that you are looking for an art with ALLOT of ground and pound and still retains much of its defensive techniques. The US Army has adopted allot of BJJ because if it's defensive capabilities in its' Modern Army Combatives Program. Though the biggest problem I have found is finding and instructor that actually wants to focus on the self defense stuff. Most of my instructors that I have had blatantly gloss over it and focus on what works in the ring.
So although I recommend the BJJ I would say that you need to shop the schools and talk with the instructors. Ask them questions about how much time they spend learning disarms and how tactics are different from the street and the ring. (Bear in mind the ring is a controlled environment where as the street has no rules and you may have to deal with factors such as multiple opponents and or weapons.)
The only reason I don't recommend the Judo is I have no experience with it, but it may be a good art to consider also.
I am guessing you didn't notice this thread is two years old?
Then you bump it with disarms, street vs ring and multiple opponent arguments? As is mentioned repeatedly, you need to learn how to fight one person before you every worry about multiple opponents.
