Curt Cignetti and Indiana football continue their busy 48 hours full of commitments from both the transfer portal and high school ranks.

The most recent commitment for the new look Indiana football Hoosiers came this afternoon as 2024 three-star defensive end Daniel ‘Duke’ Ndukwe flipped commitment from James Madison University to Indiana, he announced on his Instagram page. This commitment comes after Ndukwe took a campus visit to Bloomington over the weekend.

Earlier this month, Ndukwe announced that he would be decommitting from James Madison University due to the coaching change and would almost instantly receive an offer from Indiana football.

At 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, Ndukwe is a Lithonia, GA native and is rated as a three-star defensive end on in the 247Sports Composite rankings. During his senior season at Arabia Mountain High School (GA), he totaled 35 tackles which included six tackles for a loss as well as adding one sack, an interception and a fumble recovery.

He joins three-star quarterback Alberto Mendoza and fellow three-star defensive end Mario Landino as players that flipped their commitment from James Madison to Indiana.
