Indiana head coach Tom Allen made it clear a month ago — he wants to add a quarterback to the 2022 recruiting class after losing former commit Josh Hoover to Texas Christian.
Since then one high school senior the Hoosiers have been focused on his Florida-based quarterback Davin Wydner.
The head coach of the Cocoa, Fla. (Cocoa H.S.) product tells The Daily Hoosier new Indiana offensive coordinator Walt Bell is in Florida today to meet Wydner and watch him throw.
The 6-foot-5-inch senior led the Tigers to the Class 4A State Championship Game in 2021 after leaving Melbourne (Fla.) Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy and enrolling there in advance of his senior season.
Wydner set a Cocoa single-season school-record with 3,529 passing yards. He completed 223-of-320 attempts (69.7 percent) and threw 22 touchdowns to go against eight interceptions. The 218-pounder ran for 172 yards and two more scores.
Wydner was also recently named MVP of the Elite 100 All-Star Game, an event for Central Florida’s top seniors. According to the 247Sports Composite he is the No. 68 quarterback in the class and a 3-star product. 247Sports’ own rankings list him as the No. 32 quarterback.
Pittsburgh, Georgia Tech, Maryland, Appalachian State, Florida International, Florida Atlantic, Princeton, Toledo, Tulane and USF have all offered, although at this point some of those programs have fulfilled their 2022 quarterback needs. Florida offered Wydner a preferred walk-on opportunity according to his head coach.
Indiana currently has four scholarship quarterbacks slated to be on its 2022 roster — Missouri transfer Connor Bazelak, and returners Jack Tuttle, Donaven McCulley and Dexter Williams.
