Nicolas Radicic announced his commitment to the Indiana football program on Thursday. 

Radicic is rated as a five-star recruit and the No. 3 kicker in the nation, according to Kohl's Professional Camps. He is 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds out of Coppell High School in Texas. Radicic is slated to play in the 2023 All-American Bowl. Indiana's current kicker, Charles Campbell, also played in this game.

Radicic recently competed in the Kohl's May 2022 Texas Showcase Camp, where he received high praise. This camp is directed by Jamie Kohl, who is widely viewed as the most creditable source for NFL and college coaches.

"[Radicic] once again showed that he is one of the more pure ball strikers in his class," Kohl said. "His timing and athleticism allow him to maximize his energy into the football and create great hang-time and distance in all three disciplines. Radicic was one of the top performers during the 2021 Kohl's Winter Ranking camps. He hit multiple field goals that are at the college level and also demonstrated that he has the leg strength on punts to be a great combo specialist. Radicic has the talent to play in college at the Power Five level!"
