"This class continues to grow our program's athleticism both positionally and on the mound. It's a group with great upside and I look forward to their development." - Jeff Mercer (Head Coach, Indiana)

Head Coach Jeff Mercer and staff are once again bringing in some of the top in-state talent to Bloomington. All five in-state recruits are ranked in the Top 20 of Indiana's class of 2020 rankings, with four in the top ten and four in the PBR national rankings. Kip Fougerousse (Linton-Stockton HS), ranked No. 2, is a strong 6-foot-3, 210 pound right-handed hitting corner infielder that should be a huge addition to the Hoosiers' offense once he lands on campus. RHP Costa Sirounis (Munster) boasts a large 6-foot-6, 225 pound frame with a fastball up to 94 and feel for his 77-79 mph curveball. LHP Zach Behrmann (North Central HS) is another big arm at 6-foot-5, 200 pounds. Behrmann currently has a consistent upper 80's fastball (T-90) with a sharp breaking ball in the mid-70's. Casper Clark (Columbus North HS) adds even more size on the mound at 6-foot-6, 255 pounds. Clark reaches the low 90's with his fastball with a power type breaking ball in the mid-70's. SS/RHP Tyler Nelson (Andrean HS) is a potential two-way player at IU. The 5-foot-10, 170 pounder has solid defensive skills up the middle of the field with speed (6.73-60). Nelson is also a reliable arm on the mound with a fastball that gets into the upper 80's and one of the better breaking balls in the class at 73-77.
