Big weekend: Hoosiers add to 2020 class with two commitments
It’s been a great weekend for Indiana football.
Not only did the Hoosiers learn of their bowl destination this weekend, Tom Allen was able to land commitments from to players in the 2020 recruiting class, giving IU a huge boost with the Early Signing Period rapidly approaching.
On Sunday, Indiana received a commitment from three-star running back Tim Baldwin, a 6-foot, 195-pound athlete out of Nokesville, Virginia. He ranks as one of the top 50 ball carriers in the 2020 class and is a top 20 talent from the state of Virginia.
The Hoosiers also received a commitment from three-star defensive back Bryson Bonds, a Crowley, Texas native. The 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety is listed as one of the top 70 players at his position and sits at No. 139 from the state of Texas.
Both players made their announcement via Twitter.
