IU football picked up its second 2023 offensive lineman commit on Friday when 3-star Austin Barrett announced his pledge to the Hoosiers.

“Thank you (head) Coach (Tom) Allen and (offensive line) Coach (Darren) Hiller for the opportunity and I can’t wait to play for you!” Barrett wrote in a message published on social media. “GO HOOSIERS!!!!”
