Indiana football coach Tom Allen got an early gift in the recruiting game Wednesday when 4-star DB Daeh McCullough has made a verbal commitment to Indiana in 2023. McCullough is the son of former Indiana RB Coach Deland McCullough (2011-16).

McCullough is a 6-2 195 pound defensive back ranked 78th in the nation by 247sports and chose Indiana over Penn State, Michigan, Florida, and Arizona State.

His brother Deland McCullough Jr., is now a defensive back at Miami (Ohio). Dasan McCullough, like Daeh, is considered a four-star recruit. He’s a 6-5, 220-pound linebacker committed to Ohio State.
