Indiana has lost its quarterback in the 2024 recruiting class.
Timothy Carpenter announced on Saturday he has de-committed from IU.
Carpenter announced the news on his X account.
It’s best for me to decommit from Indiana University and re open my recruitment. Respect my decision, Thank you IU for everything. It’s in God hands.

The Trotwood, Ohio product is a consensus 3-star recruit. 247Sports says he’s the 23rd best quarterback in the 2024 class. That outlet had him as the highest graded player in IU’s class.
This marks the second time in three years IU has lost a high school senior quarterback late in the recruiting cycle. Texas based signal call Josh Hoover de-committed two years ago. Indiana ended up signing Brendan Sorsby in that class.
IU may have to wait until the spring to identify and sign a quarterback in the current high school senior class.
But a pair of in-state 2024 quarterbacks have recently become available.
Cathedral H.S.’s Danny O’Neil (No. 40 QB according to On3 average) backed out of his Colorado commitment, while Center Grove’s Tyler Cherry (No. 19 QB according to On3 average) has been hearing from other schools and could change his mind about Duke after a coaching change.
The early signing period stretches from Dec. 20 through Dec. 22 this year.
