After a stand out high school career, Bedford played in the Blue-Grey All-American Bowl at AT&T Stadium and the 2018 East-West All-Star Classic.

Bedford was one of Tom Allen and his staff’s most important signees in the 2019 class. The Hoosiers needed to start building young, quality depth along the offensive line and Bedford is a great pillar to build around.
