Eyeing IU

  • Indiana State...then an off week
      Indiana’s 2014 season is just mere hours away from kicking off.
  • Hoosiers announce remainder of sked
    Indiana formally announced the rest of its schedule today, with the season opener on Nov. 14 against Mississippi Valley State. There is only one exhibition game: Indianapolis visits Assembly Hall for a glorified scrimmage on Nov.
  • Hoosier offense belongs to Sudfeld
    BLOOMINGTON – The shared journey is over. Indiana’s quarterback role belongs to one man, Nate Sudfeld.

Pair of prospects make IU commitments official

Per several reports, Indiana notched a pair of commitments that leaked out Friday, one of which happened Wednesday.

Ocala (Fla.) West Port offensive lineman Delroy Baker released his decision via Twitter in the morning. The 6-foot-6, 275-pound guard was down to Florida and the Hoosiers, and in a surprise move strayed from the Gators.

Before announcing his finalists, Baker had offers from Miami, Florida State and other, more established programs. It came down to relationships and a feel for the program, he told Luke Stampini of

"I chose Indiana because after the first hour of being there, I felt like this is where I belong," Baker told Stampini. "It's just my gut feeling, and thankfully, everything else fell into place."

Another, lesser-known commitment gave his pledge to IU a couple days ago. Willie Yarbary, a 6-foot-2 defensive end out of Academy of Richmond (Ga.) County, picked the Hoosiers earlier in the week, but news of it did not surface until Friday.

The two latest commitments bring IU's class to six, including three three-star prospects, according to 247Composite, a service from that aggregates rankings from four major recruiting sites into one composite ranking.

Four of the future Hoosiers are top-100 prospects in the class at their positions.
