At 6-foot-5, 275 pounds, Wiginton is ranked as the No. 14 player out of the state of Indiana and is listed as the No. 117 offensive tackle in the 2020 class. He joins linebacker Ty Wise in IU’s recruiting class.
Both Wiginton and Wise are in-state products.
Under Tom Allen, Indiana has done a better job of recruiting in-state talent, which has become more evident with the last two classes. In the 2019 cycle, the Hoosiers received commitments from three of the top five in-state players.
Indiana’s 2019 recruiting class ranked 39th nationally and eighth in the B1G. It’s one of the best classes the Hoosiers have had.
