Bloomington North star D’Angelo Roberts has committed to Indiana, a source said Tuesday.

The 5-foot-10, 180-pound tailback reportedly picked Indiana over offers from Cincinnati, Ball State, Bowling Green and Western Kentucky. He also had interest from Ohio State, Penn State, Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue, Tennessee, Louisville and Vanderbilt and took a visit to Florida. Roberts, a three-star recruit according to Rivals.com, rushed for over 2,600 yards and 32 touchdowns as a junior.

Hugh Kellenberger is on the case and will have more on this story soon.

  1. This is an absolutely tremendous pickup. It bolsters an already strong RB corps, and gives the line prospects we’re picking up a hell of a back to block for.

    Roberts is a tremendously underrated player. Pumped to have him dress in Cream and Crimson.

  2. What a great pickup for the staff!!! I hope this class buys Lynch another year, even if we only win 4 or 5 games this year (although I’m hoping for 7!!!).

  3. It is great to see IU getting higher star recruits for its football team. I wish Lynch and his staff well. I am one of those who feel the football team keeps moving in the right direction.

  4. He is a nice back. reminds me of Vaughn Dunbar he is quick to the hole and break away speed. I think he would be a nice addition to this young and up coming Hoosier team. Proud that he wants to be a Hoosier….Go get them..Hoosiers…

  5. Holy crap, we could possibly see the day when IU’s football team is better than its basketball team. Never thought I’d see that!

  6. Gotta hand it to Lynch, this is a great pickup. Hopefully he stays committed and hopefully the line can block for him. Congrats to the coaching staff and Roberts!

  7. Loving this, its tough living in the south and having to support such a bad team.

    The times are a changing.

  8. I have to give it up to Lynch and the staff on this one. I talked to a kid from North that said he wanted a big name school and wanted out of Bloomington. IU coaches get brownie points for this one. Great job guys!

  9. Wow…congrats Coach Lynch & IU, the 2011 Class is shaping up to be one of the best in Indiana history!

  10. Getting better and better recruits to verbal, now lets see if this staff can do anything this season, keep this class together, and continue to develop them.

  11. IU coaching staff have clearly demonstrated recruiting ability, particularly identifying underrated talent. While not all verbals will transition, having a good size funnel is key.
