IU football recruiting: Hoosiers get commitment from 2024 OL Mitch Verstegen

Class of 2024 offensive lineman Mitch Verstegen went public with his verbal commitment to Indiana on Tuesday morning.

Verstegen announced his commitment on his Twitter page.

“Thank you Coach Allen and Coach Bostad for this amazing opportunity,” Verstegen wrote in a graphic attached to his post.  “I am extremely excited to be an Indiana Hoosier.”

A Kaukauna, Wis. product, Verstegen was offered by IU on a visit to Bloomington a couple weeks ago during the program’s Spring Football Saturday event.  He projects as an interior offensive lineman.

New offensive line coach Bob Bostad no doubt played a significant role with the Wisconsin product.  Bostad joined the Hoosiers over the winter after being the offensive line coach for Wisconsin.

The 6-foot-4 and 300-pound Verstegen was a unanimous first-team all-conference and region selection last fall after helping lead the Ghosts to a state-semifinal playoff appearance.

Verstegen does not appear in the rankings by the major recruiting outlets thus far.  He also had an offer from South Dakota State along with interest from Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Minnesota and others.

Verstegen is Indiana’s second commit in the 2024 class.  Michigan based tight end Brody Kosin committed on Saturday.
