The Indiana football earned its third commitment of Thursday as North Carolina running back Elijah Green made the call for the Hoosiers.

Green played in 27 games across four seasons. This past year he redshirted after injuries buried him on the depth chart.

He played in just two games this season, totaling 12 yards on four carries.

2022 was Green’s best season and most effective for the Tar Heels. He had 558 rushing yards on 4.3 yards per carry and had eight rushing touchdowns. He also had 17 receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown.

The 5-foot-11 and 215-pound Green led UNC in carries and rushing touchdowns in 2022.

Green had 21 carries for 65 yards and three receptions for 18 yards in the ACC Championship game. He finished had six games in a row to end the regular season with at least one touchdown.

In 2021, Green rushed 11 times for 39 yards. In 2020 he had 55 yards on 10 attempts.

Green has two years of eligibility remaining.

Green is the fourth running back to transfer to the Indiana football program this offseason. He joins JMU running backs Ty Son Lawton and Kaelon Black as well as Wake Forest back Justice Ellison.

The other two commitments on Thursday came from a pair of Old Dominion defensive backs in Shawn Asbury and then Terry Jones.
