Bloomington – Avon Lake (Ohio) offensive tackle Adam Schneid is back home from IU's one-day camp Tuesday, and he knows exactly where the Hoosiers will stand if they offer a scholarship.

"They'd be on top," Schneid said.

Now, the question is if and when that scholarship offer will come. The Hoosiers haven't offered the 6-5, 255-pounder yet, but Schneid didn't anticipate that happening during his trip to town.

"I knew I wasn't going to get an offer (Tuesday) because they need to see all the kids before they can go offer," Schneid said. "That's fair to everyone."

But Schneid is clearly hoping the offer will come. He's already been offered by Bowling Green, Miami (Ohio), Eastern Michigan, Air Force, Ball State and Richmond, but Indiana represents a significant jump up in his eyes.

Indiana still has a series of one-day camps to go over the next 10 days, and once that period comes to a close Schneid expects to find out where he stands with the Hoosiers.

"I think it's very possible I'll get offered by them," Schneid said. "I was really comfortable with how I performed. Their last camp is June 20th, so hopefully around the 21st or 22nd I'll get a phone call from those guys."

Schneid made the trip to Bloomington along with Avon Lake teammate Zach Murray. The trip gave the duo a chance to not only workout for the IU coaches and look around campus, but also for them to get a feel for their prospective position coaches.

In Schneid's case, that's IU offensive line coach Bobby Johnson. Schneid said he enjoyed working out for Johnson, and considers the chance to participate in these camps invaluable.

"I wouldn't make a decision without working with the coach," Schneid said. "That's the next five years of your life. You have to like the coach no matter what."

Schneid liked Johnson, and he said he liked what he saw from the program as well. In addition to Johnson, Schneid also had a chance to meet IU Coach Bill Lynch and IU graduate assistant Justin Frye, along with looking around the facilities and campus.

"They're a staff that's going to stay for a while," Schneid said. "They seem like they are getting settled in, putting some new additions into the stadium. I feel they are going to be there together for a while."

Schneid could very well decide to join them if Indiana opts to offer. He said IU is looking for linemen who are versatile enough to play anywhere on the line, and he has some of the traits that suggest he's capable of doing just that.

"Coaches say I have good, quick feet, and they like how I move in the agility drills," Schneid said. "I come from a school that's about power running, running it down people's throats, and they like my ability to do that."

While Schneid waits to hear from IU, he is headed to Michigan State's one-day camp Thursday and then to Ohio State on Sunday.

But he's clearly hoping to hear from the Hoosiers soon.

"I like the setting (in Bloomington), I like the area," Schneid said. "It's a really nice campus, and I like the addition they are putting on. Overall, I liked Indiana a lot."
