Three-star prospect Matthew Bedford from Memphis (TN) Cordova H.S. told Peegs.com that he has confirmed to Indiana. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound offensive lineman is the fifth commit for Coach Tom Allen and his staff in the 2019 class, and the first pledge for IU from the state of Tennessee.
Matthews, who is a cousin of current Indiana wide receiver Jacolby Hewitt, committed to the Indiana staff today while he was in Bloomington for an unofficial visit.
The talented prospect chose Indiana over offers from Memphis, Middle Tennessee State, Austin Peay, Chattanooga, Eastern Kentucky and Tennessee-Martin.
Bedford is ranked the number 81 offensive tackle in the country and the 28th best player in the state of Tennessee by the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
