IU football adds 3-star recruit

DYLAN SINN | The Journal Gazette

Indiana football scored a major recruiting victory Thursday when 2019 three-star cornerback Tiawan Mullen chose the Hoosiers over Nebraska.

Mullen, a native of Pompano Beach, Florida, is the second-ranked recruit in Indiana's class, per 24/7 Sports, and is the No. 46 cornerback in the country. He is the 15th commitment in Indiana's class, which ranks No. 48 nationally.

The 5-foot-10, 160-pound corner took an official visit to Indiana this past weekend when the Hoosiers beat Virginia at Memorial Stadium. He'd visited Nebraska the week before, but the Cornhuskers' game against Akron was canceled because of bad weather.

Mullen is the seventh player from Florida in Indiana's class as coach Tom Allen expands the Hoosiers' recruiting base. Mullen's older brother, Trayvon Mullen, is a defensive back at Clemson and the younger Mullen has received an invitation to the Army All-American Game in January.
