Bloomington, Ind. – It's a big week for Brownsburg (Ind.) linebacker Jayme Comer.
The 6'2", 220-pound linebacker is expecting to receive word about potential scholarship offers in a matter of days from two Big Ten programs – Indiana and Northwestern. Comer participated in a Northwestern camp last week and is currently in Bloomington with his high school team to take part in the Hoosiers' Team Camp.
"(The Indiana coaches) said we'd talk at the end of camp and find out where I am with them," Comer said. "After Northwestern's camp, I talked to Coach (Pat) Fitzgerald for about a half hour, and he said he's going to call me Tuesday or Wednesday and let me know if they are going to offer."
Comer is also in steady contact with Purdue as well, which will welcome him to West Lafayette June 18th for their camp. Soon afterwards he should know where he stands with all three Big Ten programs, and will begin the process of coming to college decision.
While he has recently added scholarship offers from Army, Air Force Illinois State and Wyoming, he admits he hopes the Big Ten schools come through with offers in the next week or two.
"(I hope they offer) a lot, because I want to try to stay close to home," Comer said.
A month ago Comer was still waiting on his first scholarship offer, but has seen his interest pick up as of late. A big reason for that was his performance at the Scout.com Combine in Chicago, where he was named the top linebacker in attendance. Army offered immediately afterwards, while Air Force, Illinois State and Wyoming have extended offers in the last week.
"It was a big relief (to get the offers) to get that off my shoulders," Comer said. "I feel it's a lot better now – I'm not as nervous."
Now, Comer's attention turns to weighing through the offers he has, and potentially to adding some more from a trio of Big Ten schools. He'll find out about IU's intentions Wednesday, when the IU Team Camp comes to a close.
"(Indiana's camp) has been good so far, because I've been able to work witkh the coaches and find out how they are," Comer said. "I get a sense they are keeping a close eye on me, but I'll figure more of that out as camp goes along."
Comer earned first-team All-State honors as a junior, totaling 90 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, one sack and one interception.
