Hoosiers get pledge from former MAC tight end
Indiana has added a tight end through the transfer portal.
James Bomba, who previously was at Miami (OH), announced on Twitter on Monday that he has committed to Indiana. He spent one season with the RedHawks before deciding to enter his name into the NCAA database.
This will be a homecoming for Bomba, who is from Bloomington. He initially picked Miami over offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Memphis and Western Michigan at the Group of 5 level.

“Bloomington has always been home. In a few weeks, Indiana University will be. I’ll officially be a Hoosier pursuing my degree and playing football for the school and team I’ve loved my whole life,” Bomba wrote. “Thanks to Coach [Tom] Allen for giving me the opportunity to play for Indiana Football. It’s an honor to follow in the footsteps of my dad & both of my grandpas. Now it’s my turn and I’m excited to get to work!”
As a high school prospect, Bomba was a 3-star tight end and was ranked as the No. 88 player at his position and the No. 20 prospect out of Indiana.
