IU Football Recruiting: 2020 Tight End AJ Barner Commits to Hoosiers

The balance of Indiana’s 2020 recruiting class is filling out fast.

A.J. Barner became the fifth new Hoosier commit this week, and the third on Sunday alone.

The Aurora, Ohio tight end announced his decision on Twitter:

The 6-foot-6, 225 pound Barner originally committed to Ohio University.  He took an official visit to Indiana this weekend according to a report.

A three star recruit, Barner is rated as the No. 56 tight end in the country according to the 247Sports Composite, and he has been moving up that service’s rankings fast after a senior season that ended with him being named the Ohio Division III player of the year.  Barner helped lead Aurora to the state semifinals.

Barner was also being recruited by Michigan State, Pittsburgh and other power five programs in recent weeks.  He becomes the 18th high school senior to join Indiana’s 2020 recruiting class.
