Indiana had its first of two planned junior days on Sunday afternoon, with many of the top 2015 prospects on their radar in attendance. Offensive lineman Gabe Megginson was one of the recruits who made his way to Bloomingon to visit the coaches, check out the school and take in the Hoosiers 56-46 victory over Illinois.
"A few things that stood out were the high academics, the coaching staff, and the game atmosphere was good" Megginson told The Crimson Quarry of his time on campus.
The 6-5 295 pound Jacksonville, Illinois native was offered by Indiana while on a unofficial visit in August and the staff reassured him that he is still one of their top priorities for the future on Sunday. "I talked with Coach Frey, Wilson, Stancheck, and Inge the most" Gabe stated. "They all said that its a lineman based school, with Coach Wilson as a former OL coach, and that I could come in and compete as a freshman, which is always a good situation. And that I could be apart of the turn around there." He added.
A four star prospect, Megginson is currently the 36th offensive tackle and 327th player in the 2015 class by the 247Composite. The Hoosiers aren't the only ones in the mix, as Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, Wisconsin and Illinois, where he will visit this upcoming weekend, are a few of the scholarship offers he holds at the moment.
Wanting to visit other programs and make sure he finds the right overall place to continue his education and playing days, Gabe is still months away from a decision, but without a doubt feeling the love from the IU coaching staff. "It's (Indiana) definitely up there. It's still a toss up, no one is leading quite yet."He said.
