Tommy Mister likes what he sees in Bloomington

Coach Kevin Wilson continues to add solid pieces to Indiana's 2014 recruiting class.

Athlete Tommy Mister – who will likely line up at running back for the Hoosiers – committed to the program on Saturday afternoon on a Chicago-area podcast.

The 6-foot, 198-pound Mister played quarterback as a senior this past season for St. Rita High School in Chicago. He threw for 1,434 yards and 10 touchdowns and also rushed for 1,610 yards and 28 touchdowns as a dual-threat signalcaller.

Mister averaged 7.4 yards per rush for St. Rita.

Mister committed to Iowa State last June, but when coaching changes were made, he decided to look at other schools. He identified Indiana as a destination due to the offensive schemes the Hoosiers run, with the ability to break off big runs within the offense.

Mister is ranked as a three-star recruit by Rivals.com, a national Internet recruiting service. He is the No. 23 prospect in Illinois and the No. 41 running back in the country overall.

Mister had nine other Division I offers in addition to Indiana, including Michigan State, Notre Dame and Wisconsin.

The Hoosiers recruiting class for this cycle is now up to 19 players with less than a month to go until National Signing Day. Indiana has moved up to No. 44 in the country in recruiting team rankings and is seventh in the Big 10.
