A homegrown tight end has decided to continue his football career at Indiana.
On Friday, three-star tight end and Bloomington, Indiana native Aaron Steinfeldt announced his decision to commit to the Hoosiers. He’s the second in-state player to commit to Tom Allen’s 2021 recruiting class. Steinfeldt tweeted out his pledge to the program.
“I’d like to thank all the coaches who’d take time out of their day and recruited me, you’d really make my dream come true of being a Division I athlete, and I wish you all the best of luck in your upcoming season,” Steinfeldt wrote. “With that being said, I’m excited to announce I’m staying home and I’m committed to Indiana University!”
At 6-foot-5, 230 pounds, Steinfeldt is ranked as the No. 12 player from the state of Indiana and is listed as the No. 32 tight end for the 2021 recruiting cycle. He received nearly a dozen offers during the recruiting process.
In addition to Indiana, Steinfeldt received offers from Virginia, Boise State, Cincinnati, UCF, Ball State and Central Michigan, among others.
Earlier this week, the Hoosiers also received a commitment from three-star defensive end Cooper Jones, a native of Valparaiso, Indiana. He is ranked as the No. 5 player form the state.
IU now has three members committed to its 2021 class.
