Indiana needed to add depth at tight end, and the signing of TJ Ivy will help with that.
The 3-star recruit out of Chicago lined up at tight end, wide receiver, and defensive end for Marist High School last season. He caught 20 passes for over 300 yards and 7 touchdowns. On defense, he registered 6 tackles and .5 sacks. He was teammates with fellow Indiana signee Gavin McCabe.
Ivy was originally committed to West Virginia in June, but decommitted in October. Four days after his decommitment from WVU Ivy committed to play for Indiana on October 23. He also had offers from Purdue, Iowa, Illinois, and rutger among others.
The 6’5”, 207-pound tight end will share a position room with Ryan Watercutter, the projected starter, as well as Peyton Hendershot, fellow signee Matt Bjorson, and others. He could compete for the second strong spot as well as some time on special teams.
Here are the highlights from Ivy’s senior season:
