Prior to the flip of Sampson James late in the fall, Beau Robbins was the gem of the 2019 class. The fact that a four-star recruit is no longer the standout gem speaks volumes of where Indiana is going as a program and certainly means nothing bad about Robbins. In fact, it’s the first time since 2013 that the Hoosiers have multiple four-star recruits in the same class.

The defensive end out of Carmel helped the Greyhounds reach the state finals, all after committing to the Hoosiers in the summer.
Thank you to everyone who's helped me throughout this process... I'm very excited to announce my commitment to Indiana University!! #IUnit19 pic.twitter.com/DIBqBMNX3t— Beau Robbins (@beau_robbins35) June 1, 2018
At 6’5” and 220 pounds, Robbins is already a big man that could step in as a freshman and give Indiana some depth on the line. Robbins lived in the backfield as both a pass rusher and a run-stuffer for Carmel.
Despite not being the top recruit in the class for the Hoosiers, Robbins is the sixth-highest recruit in the modern era for Indiana, per 247Sports. He’s also the fourth-highest recruit in Indiana, right behind James, and he’s the 17th-highest defensive end in the nation.
Robbins and James together give Indiana two jewels as part of a talented Class of 2019.
