Indiana football has multiple reasons to celebrate on this July 4th.
The Hoosiers picked up a commitment on Tuesday from class of 2024 edge rusher Shamar Meikle. The Hollywood, Fla. native announced his decision on social media.
Meikle is big, at 6-foot-5 and 205 pounds. 247Sports composite ranks him as a 3-star recruit, the No. 88 edge in the class of 2024, and No. 170 among all recruits from Florida in the class.
Indiana was Meikle’s only power-five offer, but he drew extensive interest from group of five programs. His other offers included FIU, Florida Atlantic, Liberty, Kent State, Coastal Carolina, Eastern Michigan, and Appalachian State.
Meikle visited IU the weekend of June 24. He becomes the 14th member of Indiana’s class of 2024, and the first pass rusher of the bunch. IU has four other defensive players in the class so far, in linebacker Quentin Clark, cornerback Christian Peterson, cornerback Judah Jenkins, and safety Keion Dunlap.
