Indiana secured a commitment Thursday night from an intriguing offensive prospect.
Kurt Rafdal, a 3-star tight end in the Class of 2017 from Carmel, Ind., committed to the Hooisers over Maryland, Nebraska, Auburn and others. He reportedly had 17 offers, including other Big Ten teams Purdue, Illinois and Michigan State.
Rafdal is reportedly going to take an official visit to Maryland this weekend. He was originally expected to be there two weeks ago when the Terps crushed Purdue 50-7, but he had to cancel.
Listed at 6-foot-7 and 230 pounds, Rafdal is the No. 28 tight end in the country, according to the 247Sports composite ranking. He’s the No. 6 player in the state of Indiana.
Rafdal is now the highest-rated player in Indiana’s 2017 recruiting class.
