Indiana football lands 2024 OL commitment from Mitch Verstegen



The Indiana football program picked up its second commitment of the 2024 class on Tuesday when Kaukauna (Wisc.) offensive lineman Mitch Verstegen announced his pledge to Indiana.

Verstegen chose the Hoosiers over an offer from South Dakota State as well as interest from programs such as Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Minnesota and others. While he’s an unranked member of the 2024 class, the interest around the midwest for Verstegen was peaking.

Verstegen visited Bloomington during the Indiana football spring scrimmage on April 15. That’s also when he received the official offer from the Indiana staff.

The 6-foot-4 and 300-pound lineman was a unanimous First-Team All-Conference and Region selection this season. He helped lead Kaukauna to a State Semifinal appearance.

As expected, Indiana offensive line coach Bob Bostad was instrumental in getting the pledge from Verstegen. Bostad came over to join Indiana’s staff this spring following a stint at Wisconsin.

Verstegen played the majority of his junior season at right tackle.
