IU football recruiting: Tiawan Mullen’s brother Trevell commits to Indiana

Trevell Mullen, a four-star cornerback from Coconut Creek High School in Pompano Beach, Fla. and the younger brother of Indiana All-American Tiawan Mullen, announced on Sunday that he has committed to Indiana.

“I’d like to thank all the coaches that reached out to me and recruited me throughout the whole process,” Mullen posted on his Twitter account. “With that being said, after speaking with God and my family, I will be announcing that I am committed to Indiana University. #LEO.”

Mullen made the announcement upon the conclusion of his official visit to the Bloomington campus.

“The culture, they treated me like family when they first offered me,” Mullen said in a Rivals video posted on YouTube.  “Once coach Shelby started talking to me he treated me like family.  Indiana felt like home.  It’s home to me.”

Mullen is the No. 181 rated player and the No. 22 cornerback in the Class of 2022 according to the 247Sports.com Composite Rankings. Mullen is the fourth commitment in the Class of 2022 for Indiana and the second four-star recruit in the class, joining Deland McCullough’s son Dasan, who is listed as an athlete from Bloomington South High School and expected to play linebacker.

Trevell is also the younger brother of Las Vegas Raiders corner Trayvon, and the cousin of Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.  At around 6-foot, he is a bit taller than Tiawan, but Indiana’s trust in his brother despite his relatively slight stature helped Trevell build trust with the program.

“There were a whole bunch of schools that gave up on Tiawan, but Indiana got the right one, and they got another one coming,” Mullen told Rivals.

Mullen also had reported offers from Arkansas, Auburn, Florida, Kentucky, Miami, Oregon, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Southern Mississippi, Syracuse and West Virginia.

Mullen is the fourth overall commit in Indiana’s 2022 class.  Three of the four are ranked No. 409 or better nationally.
