Isaiahh Loudermilk is ready to make the call.
The 6-foot-7 260-pound Howard (Kan.) West Elk defensive tackle will announce his decision on Thursday and will choose between three schools: Kansas State, Wisconsin and Oregon.
“It’s all been great and it’s all been fun,” he admitted of the process. “It’ll be good to kind of get it off my back and finally have one school.”
Loudermilk has visited all three finalists and broke down each of the three finalists, starting with the program closest to him in Kansas State.
“It’s a school that’s in-state and I’ve always grown up hearing about K-State football,” he said. “So that’s always been a school that I’ve heard of. And then when I went on visits I loved the people and it just seemed like a place that I would like.”
Located a little under 10 hours away by car is Wisconsin, which wowed Loudermilk during his visit.
“I didn’t know anything about them at first,” he said. “After I went on my visit there I absolutely loved my official. I got to meet the coaches, the players and everyone was just really nice and it just seemed like a place where I would feel comfortable. But I think that I’d be able to fit in and it’s a great school academically. It’s got a bit of everything.”
Finally, there’s the Ducks. Loudermilk visited Oregon near the end of the season and, like Wisconsin, really enjoyed his visit there.
“They’re a huge program,” Loudermilk said. “They’ve been known to win. Great talent. That’s another visit that I had a blast on because I’ve always just heard of the Oregon Ducks. I mean, they’ve always been big and I went up on the visit, came home and just loved it. I loved all the coaches. They were all great.”
Three choices. One winner. Stick with Scout for the latest on Loudermilk’s choice later this week.
