2019 Recruiting Class Breakdown: Indiana


Phil Wade
Indiana Executive Director

With the NCAA's early signing period wrapped up, we take a look at the 2019 high school recruiting classes for each D1 school in Indiana with in-state recruits.  We start off by looking at Indiana's class.

Total Commits: 13

Total In-State Commits: 6

Top 50 Players (IN): 6

"This class provides the athleticism, physicality, length and tools we covet. We like the mentality of the group and believe they'll fit in well with our culture of work as they develop into great players." - Jeff Mercer (Head Coach, Indiana University)

Head Coach Jeff Mercer and staff are bringing in a talented group in 2019.  All six of the in-state recruits are ranked in the top 25 of Indiana's class of 2019 rankings.  Leading the way is the ultra-athletic Ethan Vecrumba (Edgewood HS), a physical 6-foot-4, 205 pound outfielder that runs a 6.38 60-yard dash with raw power from the left-side of the plate. Four of the in-state recruits are pitchers. Jack Walker (New Palestine HS) is a projectable 6-foot-6, 210 pound southpaw up to 92 mph this fall. Jo Wilkinson (Providence HS), Reese Sharp (University HS) and Dylan Steele (Bloomington North HS) are all hard throwing right-handers sure to add depth to the Hoosiers staff. Garrett Manous (Munster HS) is an athletic, speedy outfielder that runs a 6.58 60-yard dash.
