Beavercreek (Ohio) linebacker Airius Moore has had a lengthy recruitment with Indiana, but Saturday was the first time he ever attended a Hoosiers home game.
"For the first time, it was pretty good," Moore said. "That was the first time I have seen a school put the recruits next to the student section."

The 6-foot, 215-pound Moore spent much of his visit to Indiana on Saturday mingling with the other recruiting visitors.
"I talked to a junior named Kraig Howe from my area and sat next to him while I was there," Moore said. "I talked to the quarterback commit from California (Alexander Diamont) and a couple other guys who sounded like they were pretty interested in Indiana. One was from Georgia and the other one was from Florida. They are both wide receivers."
Pre-game gave Moore a chance to spend time around the coaching staff. He received his Indiana offer in the spring and has built a strong relationship with their staff.
"The three I really talk to the most is Coach (Kevin) Johns, Coach (William) Inge and Coach (Kevin) Wilson," Moore said. "Coach Johns is from our area, and we played against his high school on Friday. I know him pretty well.
"I think Indiana is actually a pretty good team. Coach Johns told me before the game they were a little young, and you could see that a little bit."
Two weeks ago Moore had Indiana and Marshall tied at the top of his list, and that is where his recruitment still stands after Saturday's visit.
"They are still kind of head-to-head," Moore said. "Marshall is coming to my practice tomorrow. I plan on going there Nov. 2."
Moore does not plan to take any official visits before making his college selection, and he may not wait until Nov. 2 to commit to his school of choice.
"It could come earlier, or it could come after," Moore said. "It just depends."
