Tom Allen & Co. have dipped their toes in the Florida talent pool once again as three-star cornerback Tiawan Mullen signed with IU on Wednesday.

The Coconut Beach-native chose Indiana over offers from Kansas State, Kentucky, Nebraska, and a slew of other schools. The Hoosiers offered Mullen in May 2017, but he didn’t choose IU until just a couple of months ago. Since then, he’s been steadfast in his commitment and one of the program’s most vocal commits on Twitter.

This signing makes it the second year in a row that the Hoosiers have brought in a player with an invite to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl. Last year it was kicker Charles Campbell. Mullen is just the third IU signee to play in the game, joining Campbell and class of 2013 safety Antonio Allen.
He told USA Today in an interview that he chose Indiana because of the family mentality of the program, which reminded him of his high school program and made him feel at home.
Mullen’s older brother Trayvon is a cornerback for the Clemson Tigers.
