Indiana has made Bloomington North running back D’Angelo Roberts a priority since it began recruiting the class of 2011.
That paid off today, when Roberts verbally committed to Indiana.
Roberts, who is 323 yards behind the Monroe County career rushing record entering his senior year, said he was talking to Indiana running backs coach/associate head coach Dennis Springer and “just felt like today was the day to become a Hoosier.”
“I’ve been here (in Bloomington) for a while,” Roberts said. “I see it as a good, up-and-coming program. And I have a real good relationship with coach (Dennis) Springer. That’s all I need right there.”
Roberts ran for 2,604 yards and 32 touchdowns as a junior, along with 12 catches (and three more scores). He was a workhorse of a back, with 388 carries in 12 games, during what is the state’s 17th-best single-season total.
