Recent IU Commit Caleb Murphy feels like IU, Bloomington are Home

Written by Sammy Jacobs (@Hoosier_Huddle)

West Washington High School product Caleb Murphy committed to the Indiana Hoosiers on June 4th. For those that do not know about West Washington, it is a small 1-A school in southern Indiana about an hour south of Bloomington. Usually when a southern Indiana prospect is talking about IU, it is because they grew up on IU basketball, however for Caleb Murphy when he wanted to watch Big Ten football on Saturday’s the Hoosiers were on his TV.
