Indiana picks up commitment from 3-star DE Brandon Wilson #iufb

Indiana added the 18th member of its 2015 recruiting class on Sunday evening, picking up a verbal commitment from three-star defensive end Brandon Wilson.

The 6-foot-4, 240-pound prospect from Charlotte, N.C. decommitted from Virginia earlier Sunday. He visited Bloomington on Dec. 12.

Wilson, who most recently played for West Orange High School in Winter Garden, Fla., joins Westfield’s Jacob Robinson and Avon’s Joey Belden as the third three-star defensive line recruit in Kevin Wilson’s 2015 class. Not included in the 18-man class are former UAB players Marqui Hawkins and Jordan Howard. Hawkins, a receiver, and Howard, a running back, both recently announced they are transferring to Indiana and will be immediately eligible next season.

Wilson originally picked Virginia in September over a list of finalists that included Wisconsin, Kentucky, Georgia Tech and Central Florida.

With Wilson’s commitment, Indiana’s 2015 class is now ranked. No. 6 in the Big Ten according to Rivals. IU is No. 7 in the conference in the 247 Sports Big Ten rankings.


  1. Excellent pick up…if the Hoosier D can develop a consistent pass rush, then watch out!
    I’m also interested in seeing if speedy Laray Smith can become a top notch CB in the B1G. There will definitely be some interesting story lines heading into the 2015 season…

  2. Get signed on the dotted line young Mr. Wilson and become a part of Hoosier Nation. Keep the recruiting Mo going CKW and staff. Go Hoosiers!!!

  3. congratulation to all!!! Coach Wilson and his staff have done a wonderful job of putting together a very very good recruiting class…a recruiting class that brings some depth and competitiveness to the IU football program. Coach Wilson continue the excellent work i believe in the program you are building!!! GO IU

  4. I’m guessing IU’s new Defensive Coordinator had a lot to do with this commitment! Most encouraging is that young Mr. Wilson chose IU over numerous other major conference schools. Any time IU is beating out schools like Wisconsin and Georgia Tech for a recruit’s commitment, it’s making great progress improving the level of talent on the team.
