The transfer commits for Curt Cignetti and Indiana football just continues to roll today as the Hoosiers landed their fourth, and arguably best, transfer on the day.

As it was announced on his Twitter, former James Madison wide receiver Elijah Sarratt has committed to the Indiana football program. This commitment comes after Sarratt went on an official visit to Indiana just yesterday. Sarratt held offers from Wisconsin, South Carolina, Cal, Purdue, Utah and others in to Indiana.

Sarratt is coming off of a terrific season with the Dukes. He finished 2023 with 82 receptions for 1,191 yards and eight touchdowns. He had six 100+ yard games with four in a row to end the season. He was named an All-Sun Belt selection in 2023.

This is a massive get for Cignetti and the Indiana football program as they were able to land of the top players for James Madison while Curt Cignetti was at the helm. The 6-foot-2 and 207-pound wideout averaged 14.5 yards per reception and caught 82.8 percent of his targets (82-of-99). He had an overall grade on Pro Football Focus of 90.2.

He was rated the second-highest group of five wideout on PFF and the fourth-highest in FBS.

Before James Madison, Sarratt starred at Saint Francis. He earned FCS Freshman All-American honors after catching 42 passes for 700 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Since Curt Cignetti left James Madison to become the head coach for the Hoosiers, 11 total players have transferred to Indiana from JMU.

Indiana football added three wide receivers through the transfer portal this winter as well as retaining Donaven McCulley who had originally entreated the transfer portal, and EJ Williams and Omar Cooper Jr.

Sarratt has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
