As Tom Allen puts the finishing touches on his 2017 recruiting class, he’s starting to work on his haul for next year.
Lowell safety Jordan Jusevitch committed to Indiana on Saturday evening, giving the Hoosiers their first member of the 2018 recruiting class. The 6-foot, 200-pound high school junior was named Times of Northwest Indiana Defensive Player of the Year this past fall after making a team-best 104 tackles with seven tackles for loss and five interceptions.
Jusevitch took an official visit to Bloomington for IU’s game against Nebraska on Oct. 15. The Hoosiers offered Jusevitch a scholarship in December and he gave a verbal pledge on Saturday. Jusevitch has also taken unofficial visits to Louisville, Central Michigan, Toledo, Purdue, Wisconsin and Notre Dame.
According to 247 Sports, Central Michigan and Ball State are his only other offers.
“With a lot of though and conversations with my coaches and family, I know that this is the right choice for me,” Jusevitch wrote in a message posted to his Twitter account on Saturday. “With that being said, I want to finally thank coach Allen and the rest of the coaching staff for giving me this opportunity to play my dream of Division I football in the Big Ten.”
