Hoosiers land 4th commitment Tuesday; 3-star LB from Florida

Wait, there’s more.

A big recruiting day for Indiana started early Tuesday morning and continued into the late afternoon with the commitment of Florida linebacker Kervens Bonhomme.

The three-star prospect is the fourth commitment IU accepted Tuesday and the ninth landed since Friday. Indiana’s 2019 recruiting class now ranks No. 34 in the nation and No. 10 in the Big Ten.

Bonhomme’s commitment follows those of fellow Florida linebacker Dorian Jones, Florida tight end Gary Cooper and Ohio long snapper Sean Wracher, each of whom committed earlier Tuesday.

An Ontario native attending Clearwater Academy International in Clearwater, Fla., the 6-foot-1, 234-pound outside linebacker chose IU over offers from Nebraska, Rutgers, Central Florida, Temple, South Florida and Western Kentucky, among others.

  1. Yes it has been a good day for IUFB. Bonhomme is a Canadian who has only one year of FB in the USA heading into his senior season. He has a teammate that is a DT [Sio Nofoagatotoa]
    that I really hope follows him to IU.

  2. And then Simmons decommits. While watching his highlights last night I was thinking it might be hard to hang on to this kid. Sure enough, he decommits today for his home state Tarheels.

    1. I wonder if he is making a mistake knowing NC Coach Larry Fedora’s track record. If they win big, Fedora will be on to bigger and better things at the drop of a hat. If they continue on the same path, may find him run out the door.

  3. Per NCAA rules we are in the somewhat of a rough draft stage of recruiting. It is far from over as to what the final draft will look like. The less adjustments and corrections that have to be made the closer is the final draft.

  4. Wilson was great at landing powerful backs…Allen’s gotta land us some more ‘beast mode’ running backs.
    I’m just here on Scoop so I won’t get fined….

  5. It is disappointing that Simmons decommitted but it wasn’t a surprise when UNC lost a WR commit. thinkaboutit I also wonder about the choice based on the situation since coach Littrell left UNC. Coach Littrell has shown he really improves offense at the stops he has made. My favorite offenses at IU were when he was here. He also brought Nate Sudfeld with him to IU from AZ. Just imagine where IU’s offenses would have been without Sudfeld and play calling became questionable after coach Littrell left. I think UNC may be ina down slide with Fedora out in a couple of year, of course I could be wrong.

    1. V13,
      I agree with your sentiment on Fedora. I’m just familiar with his track record at Southern Mississippi as are most who reside in the deep south. Fedora left the program in shambles. Although he did have a successful tenure win loss wise. Basically left the cupboard bare with very poor recruiting overall. Did have a few hits which may be what has happened with Simmons, but overall nowhere near enough for his successors to compete.

  6. All the top programs have guys decommit. Simmons looked like a potential star. But I’d rather see IU go after that level of talent and come up short a few times than settle for guys with lower ceilings. Nobody remembers how many times Babe Ruth struck out.
