Coach Tom Allen riles up his players Sept. 11, 2021, at Memorial Stadium. Indiana’s class of 2022 is ranked No. 20 nationally.

Indiana football signed its 2022 recruiting class Wednesday on National Signing Day. 

"Really, really good foundation here that we have," Allen said. "I'm excited about the group that we put together as a staff and guys that believed in us and stuck with us through some challenges this season."

The Hoosiers signed four four-star recruits, including outside linebacker Dasan McCullough from Bloomington High School South. 

McCullough, the son of running backs coach Deland McCullough, is the No. 58 recruit nationally, according to 247sports. McCullough is also Indiana’s highest ranked recruit in program history.

"Obviously got a perfect connection with him with father here, but Dasan has earned this," Allen said. "He's pretty special." 

Indiana’s other four star signings are running back Gi’Bran Payne from Cincinnati, Ohio, defensive lineman Dominick James from Bradenton, Florida, and cornerback Trevell Mullen from Pompano Beach, Florida. Mullen is the younger brother of junior cornerback Tiawan Mullen.

"Known him for many years because of that connection, but he's coming here to become his own guy and to be able to establish his own identity and his own legacy," Allen said.

Four-star Omar Cooper, a wide receiver from Lawrence North High School in Indianapolis, committed to Indiana July 7 but has yet to sign.

Indiana signed 14 three-star recruits, highlighted by tight end Brody Foley from Cincinnati, offensive tackle Bray Lynch from Austin, Texas, and running back Jaylin Lucas from New Orleans, Louisiana.

Indiana’s class of 2022 is currently ranked No. 4 in the Big Ten and No. 20 nationally.
