Fiacable is the fourth player to commit to Indiana in the class of 2021, and all four hail from the Hoosier state.
Fiacable’s ties to the program run deep, and thus his commitment to play for IU does not come as a surprise.
His brother Mike Fiacable was a quarterback for IU from 2015-18, and brother Steve was an offensive lineman from 2009-10. Their father Steve Fiacable played for Bill Mallory in the late ’80s, early ’90s. A third brother, Nick, was also a student assistant with the program.
Vinny’s Twitter post announcing his commitment expressed his love for the game and his teammates, views that are part of the foundation of head coach Tom Allen’s program.
“My favorite part of this game is the fact that 90 guys can all come together and be bought into the same goal,” Fiacable said. “The bond that we all have and the love that we have for each other, really deepened my love for football.”
The 6-foot-4, 290 pound Fiacable played tackle in high school but projects as a guard in college. According to 247Sports, he is a two-star recruit, the No. 86 guard in the class nationally, and the No. 25 player in the state of Indiana.
Fiacable chose IU over more than a dozen other schools that had offered including Louisville, Cincinnati, and a few Ivy League programs. Indiana offered a scholarship last week.
