Archie Miller and the Indiana Hoosiers picked up their fourth commitment in the 2018 class Monday night as Jake Forrester announced he will be taking his talents to Bloomington.

Forrester, a 6-foot-9 forward from Pennsylvania, chose Indiana over Seton Hall, Virginia Tech, Pittsburgh, and Xavier.

A three-star recruit, Forrester is ranked 168th in the 2018 class and the third best player in the state of Pennsylvania.

Forrester visited Bloomington this weekend and it didn’t take long for him to decide where he’d play college ball.

"I think that between (assistant coach) Bruiser Flint and coach Miller, they made him feel like a priority," Dwight Forrester, Jake Forrester's father, told the Indy Star. "They made him feel that if they got him, it would give them one of the best-recruiting classes in the country for 2018."

Known for his versatility out on the wing, Forrester can play both the three and four position at the college level. Teaming up with fellow 2018 forwards Damezi Anderson and Jerome Hunter will be something to watch for heading into the 2018-19 season, but all three of these guys' have different play styles to complement each other's strengths.

With Forrester under wraps, all eyes will be looking towards New Albany, and five-star shooting guard Romeo Langford as people around the Indiana program have started to become more optimistic about landing Langford.

Langford recently cut his list to seven schools and will be visiting Bloomington for Hoosier Hysteria in October.
