BLOOMINGTON, IN — The Hoosiers sign two additional pieces to the 2019 recruiting class, which now stands at 38th on 247Sport’s Composite Team Rankings. If these rankings hold true, Indiana would have signed their highest rated class since 247Sports has been producing composite team rankings. (In 2000, Indiana also had a 38th ranked class when that ranking was still in its infancy.)
Josh Sanguinetti — Safety
Indiana football has struck gold once again in the sunshine state. Sanguinetti is a 6’2” safety out of University School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He comes in as a 3-star, top 500 player nationally, and top 50 player at the safety position. He held over 30 offers from schools such as Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Penn State.
Indiana is building a top-notch safety group. Sanguinetti is going to be somebody that plays at least the four games allowed to redshirt, but no one should be surprised if he finds himself in a rotation at safety and is a key player on special teams.
Tim Weaver — Offensive Line
Weaver brings great size and athleticism to Bloomington this summer. He is a 6’5”, 285 pound tackle from Saucon Valley High school located in Hellertown, Pennsylvania. Weaver is ranked as a 3-star recruit, 1683 nationally, and 142nd tackle in the country. Indiana was able to pull Weaver away from Rutgers as their 20th recruit in the 2019 class.
Weaver has all the tools to become a starter for the Hoosiers over time. He will probably move down to an interior lineman to increase his chances to play earlier. Weaver will contribute to the Indiana program, but it might be in 2-3 years as the Hoosier staff expects offensive lineman to play multiple positions across the line.
