IU lands 4-star Carmel DE Beau Robbins

Tom Allen kicked off the month of June with a major recruiting victory.

Four-star Carmel defensive end Beau Robbins announced his commitment to Indiana on Friday, becoming the Hoosiers’ third addition to their 2019 recruiting class.

Robbins chose IU from a long list of offers that included Michigan State, Iowa, Nebraska, Northwestern, Purdue, Minnesota, Louisville, Arkansas and others.

“Thank you to everyone who’s helped me throughout this process,” Robbins wrote on Twitter. “I’m very excited to announce my commitment to Indiana University.”

The 6-foot-4, 238-pound prospect is considered the fourth-best recruit in the state of Indiana and the No. 18 weak-side defensive end in the nation. IU defensive line coach Mark Hagen — himself a Carmel graduate — served as Robbins’ lead recruiter.

As a junior, Robbins posted 11 sacks and 58 tackles, including six for loss.


  1. This exactly what the doctor ordered! A great 4 star Recruit from the State of Indiana! Keep up the great work Coach Allen and Staff!

  2. My daily checking on IU recruiting has finally been rewarded! I have been getting worried that we hadn’t had any commitments for quite a while, and now a 4* and the 4th ranked player in the state. Let’s hope his commitment starts the ball rolling with several more over the next couple of weeks, including some more highly rated in state prospects. Wouldn’t it be great if Hunter Johnson also decided to commit to IU? That would be so huge!

    We keep seeing these articles about highly ranked recruits having IU in their top 3 or 4. Maybe Robbins commitment will get some of these guys to pull the trigger for IU. We can all dream!

  3. Ranger 67, your post is what I have been say on other sites because I see it the way you do. Getting HJ would be very big for recruiting, in my eyes, as it would signal to others IU is a place to come to with these coaches. Like you I can dream for now and maybe our dreams will come true.

  4. This is great news for a few reasons. 1) He looks to be an impressive prospect with huge upside potential, 2) a top recruit from within the state of Indiana chose to play for IU, reversing a negative trend that has haunted IU for years, and 3) IU beat out some very impressive football programs to get this guy. I think Allen is building a reputation as a man that can build outstanding defenses and that’s going to help him recruit defensive players. If we can do the same thing for a few top offensive players, we could have something special in a few years!
