Gaines has five Big Ten offers

"I went to Michigan State and Indiana's camps," defensive end Josh Gaines said. "They were one day. They were basically the same."
"I visited Purdue, Indiana, and Michigan State this summer. I'm looking at those three."
"And I'm looking at Penn State, Wisconsin, and Michigan. All of those schools except Michigan have offered me."
"Right now I don't know who I like best. I'll take some visits and narrow it down."
The 6-foot-4 and 245 pounder from Ft. Wayne(Ind.) Northrop has played a number of positions since his freshman year when he moved into the varsity starting lineup. However Gaines is being recruited as a defensive end or tight end.
