LeVante Bellamy is still running through the state playoffs with his Indianapolis (Ind.) Brebeuf Jesuit team, but the junior back took time off from his title quest last weekend to make an unofficial visit to an in-state school.
"I went down to IU to see how the campus was and watched a little bit of the game against Illinois," Bellamy said. "They showed me a lot of love, lot of respect. I met their running backs and a lot of their players, met some more of the coaches, walked around the weight room and a lot of that stuff."
The 5-foot-9, 175-pound Bellamy said Indiana could be looking at him to play the running back or slot receiver positions.

"They said to keep doing exactly what I have been doing," he said. "I'm quick, elusive and my blocking is everything they want in an all-purpose running back."
Indiana has yet to offer Bellamy, but he does hold early offers from Cincinnati and Toledo. The Bearcats were first on the board this past summer.
"I went to a camp at Cincinnati," Bellamy said. "They already knew that I was going to come down and saw my [film], so when I came down I met the head coach and all that. At the camp I ran a 4.4 and they told me they wanted to offer. That next week I had an offer from Cincinnati.
"They are definitely high in my mind because they were the No. 1 offer. It was a great experience because I saw the facilities, the weight room and met some of their players."
Bellamy said he is receiving regular mail from the likes of Oregon, Florida State, Auburn, Alabama, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Michigan, Texas, Tennessee and Minnesota.
Through 12 games this season, Bellamy has rushed 212 times for 1,970 yards and over 30 touchdowns.
