football – JOHN AMES – Illinois State University
"They were my first offer so from the start they got my attention. Just the relationships with the coaches really played a big part and it really fit academically. I have already gotten to meet the team and all the coaches, so I'm excited to strengthen those relationships. I'll be a red shirt so I'll just be getting bigger and stronger and getting ready to step on the field."
soccer – KYLE BARKS – Indiana University

baseball – NICK LOGUSCH – St. Louis University
"For me it was a really good fit academically and athletically for all the schools I looked at. It kind of had the best of both worlds and I really liked the coaches and the campus.

basketball – RYAN STIPANOVICH – Bradley University
