MIDWEST RECRUITING: Bishop Dwenger OL Luke Wiginton chooses IU after stock quickly rises

He’s been one of the buzziest college football prospects of the offseason. Now, he’s a Hoosier.

Fort Wayne Bishop Dwenger junior offensive lineman Luke Wiginton committed to Indiana University over the weekend, capping a whirlwind two months where his recruiting stock shot through the roof. IU was the first power-conference offer to come his way in mid-February. Within days, the floodgates had opened. Purdue, Illinois, Minnesota and Cincinnati quickly came in with bids. Vanderbilt soon followed.

Last fall, Wiginton (6-foot-6, 280 pounds) won a state championship with his Bishop Dwenger squad in Class 4A. He is the second in-state recruit from the Class of 2020 to pledge his loyalty to Hoosiernation in the past month. Back in March, Carmel linebacker Ty Wise’s committed to IU.
