Hoosiers add Florida LB Dorian Jones; 2nd commit of Tuesday

Indiana’s recent recruiting momentum rolled through Tuesday morning with the addition of three-star inside linebacker Dorian Jones.

The Florida native announced his pledge on Twitter, becoming IU’s seventh commit since Friday and its second of the day. Ohio long snapper Sean Wracher announced his commitment to IU approximately an hour prior to Jones.

Jones is the first linebacker to commit to IU’s 2019 class, a 6-foot, 219-pound prospect who also held offers from Kentucky, Syracuse, South Florida and Temple, among others. He’s considered the No. 30 inside linebacker in the 2019 247 Sports Composite rankings and the No. 114 overall prospect from the Sunshine State.

“The IU coaching staff was outstanding,” Jones wrote in a message posted to Twitter. “(Thank) you all for giving me a home away from home.”

As a junior at Oxbridge Academy last fall, Jones earned Palm Beach Post All-Area second team honors, finishing with 69 tackles and helping his team to the Class 3A state championship game.

Jones’ commitment bumped IU’s 2019 recruiting class to No. 37 in the nation. The Hoosiers’ 10-man class is ranked No. 11 in the Big Ten.


  1. What a difference a couple of days makes. Hats off to T.A. and the staff! This class is really starting to take shape and more than 20 of our targets are still on the board.

  2. HC great news about Cooper as I was hoping he would commit after his camp. Jones is a thumper that has a big impact on his hits. He looks like a player that can develop with a redshirt year and then play his last three years at IU. This 2019 class is developing into another good class with the type of players coach Allen has been emphasizing.
