Jackson, Ohio four-star linebacker Reagan Williams made the drive to Indiana for their junior day on Sunday and walked away from Bloomington with his first Big Ten offer.
"All throughout the day I talked to pretty much all the coaches," Williams said. "Then we went to the basketball game and they pulled me out of the basketball game to go back and talk to coach (Kevin) Wilson. He told me he was going to offer me."
Williams had picked up earlier offers from Kent State and Ohio, and was excited to land his first one from the Big Ten.
"It feels amazing," he said. "It is definitely an honor and a humbling experience. I'm glad my hard work has gotten me this far, but I can't slow down and just have to keep working."
Williams had previously attended an Indiana home football game back in September, but was able to spend more time with the coaches during Sunday's junior day visit.
"At a junior day like this they don't really have the pressure of going out and winning a football game," Williams said. "They can be a lot more personable with you, spend more time with you and get the face-to-face relationship going.
"It was very informative. I got to talk to the new defensive coordinator, coach (Brian) Knorr, and I really like what he had to offer. I have been in close contact with linebacker coach (William) Inge, and everything they said was very enlightening. I definitely love what they have to offer through their facilities."
The 6-foot-2, 235-pound Williams is ranked as the No. 9 inside linebacker prospect in the 2015 class, and he expects to man that position if he were to go to Indiana.
"From what they told me, I think they are thinking the MIKE, inside linebacker position," Williams said. "They talked a lot about how they are trying to evolve and change their defense. They talked about their guys being interchangeable and everyone having a responsibility."
Williams will follow up Sunday's trip to Indiana with a junior day visit to Purdue next weekend. The glow from the offer and time spent on Indiana's campus is not expected to fade soon, however.
"I definitely have high interest," Williams said. "I love what they have to offer and love what I saw today."
