“Tom Allen is one of the best coaches in America because he is one of the best people,” Foley said. “I’ve felt that I’m a part of family already without being on campus. Coach (Kevin) Wright is a great coach and person, as well. I’ve built up a great relationship with him.”
A 3-star recruit according to the 247Sports Composite, Foley is the No. 494 overall player in the 2022 class and the No. 26 tight end.
The Cincinnati, Ohio (Anderson High School) product previously committed to Tennessee in May.
After comparing the 6-foot-5 and a half and 236 pound Foley to former Penn State star and current Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth, 247Sports national analyst Allen Trieu wrote this about Foley on his profile page:
“Comes from a background of linebacker and also running back before he hit a growth spurt. Still shows that athleticism after the catch and as a route-runner. Shows solid ball skills and ability to make catches in traffic. Defensive film and glimpses as a blocker show physicaility as well as when he runs through tackles on offense. Has to keep growing into his body but has the frame to do so. Should continue to get faster in college as well. Projects as a complete, all-around tight end and has the markers we look for in an impact college player.”
Foley had 13 receptions for 129 yards and five touchdowns in nine games for his senior season at Anderson.
He is the fifth member of the IU 2022 class who hails from Ohio, including another tight end, Ryan Miller. In total IU now has 16 commits in the class with the early national signing period beginning on Wednesday. The class ranks 20th nationally and No. 5 in the Big Ten as of this writing.
In addition to IU and Tennessee, Foley also had notable offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Cincinnati, Duke, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisville, Michigan State, Minnesota, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Rutgers, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.
