Three star ranked Joliet Catholic senior offensive lineman Jim Jadron has ended his recruiting process tonight, and Jadron gave Indiana University and head coach Gerry DiNardo his verbal commitment just minutes ago.
"I had an incredible visit to Indiana this weekend, so after we got home today I talked it over with my parents" said Jim Jadron. "I really felt at home at Indiana, so I called Coach DiNardo and gave him my verbal commitment."
"Indiana offered everything that I was looking for in a school. From the facilities to the players and the coaches, I just had a feeling that I belonged. I really got along well with the players at Indiana and that was a factor. I know I'll get a great education at Indiana and I also think I'll have a chance to contribute early as well. I love the coaches, yet I also realized that I need to be happy wherever I decided to go to school, and I can see myself being happy in Bloomington for the next four years."
Jadron had several scholarship offers, and had made official visits to Illinois, Colorado and Indiana. Jadron as recently as this afternoon had narrowed his final choice to those three schools. Jadron added that "my family was very supportive, but they also didn't interfere and left the final decision up to me. That's was actually sort of tough because I would ask my Dad what he thought of this school and that school, but he insisted that I make my decision on my own. My family is really excited that I decided on Indiana."
"I wanted to set my own path, and I feel that Indiana is the best place for me. I'm a solid verbal to Indiana University."
