Indiana football adds 3 commitments for 2025, now has top-25 recruiting class


As Indiana football head coach Curt Cignetti prepares for his first season in Bloomington this fall, he and his staff have an eye toward the future — and they’re continuing to add talent to the 2025 recruiting class. 

The Hoosiers landed three recent commitments, starting Saturday with defensive back Jaylen ‘Hollywood’ Bell, a 3-star recruit who’s ranked as the No. 55 cornerback in his class by 247sports. 

A native of Loganville, Georgia, Bell ventured to Bloomington last Friday alongside several others during a weekend designed for official visits. As a junior at Grayson High School, the 5-foot-11, 170-pound Bell recorded 46 tackles and an interception. 

The next domino to fall in the Hoosiers’ strong recruiting run came Monday, when 3-star running back Sean Cuono announced his verbal pledge. 

Cuono, a 5-foot-10, 185-pound standout from Clearwater, Florida, rushed for 1,024 yards and eight touchdowns on 145 carries last season. In 2022, he saw 222 attempts for 1,786 yards and 20 touchdowns. 

From 2022-23, Cuono caught 29 passes for 384 yards and eight touchdowns. He’s rated as the No. 60 running back in his class. 

Indiana’s strong stretch culminated with a commitment Tuesday morning from 6-foot-2, 270-pound defensive lineman Jhrevious Hall. The Columbia, Tennessee, native is listed as a 3-star recruit and the No. 45 defensive lineman in the 2025 class. 

Hall chose the Hoosiers over several prominent suitors, including Southeastern Conference schools Auburn University, the University of Mississippi, the University of Tennessee and the University of Missouri. 

With the trio of commitments, Indiana’s 2025 recruiting class now ranks No. 25 nationally, according to 247sports. Hall, Bell and Cuono are the team’s third, fourth and fifth highest-rated recruits, respectively, in the 11-member group.
