And true freshman Will Seger, from Jasper, Ind., will round out the team lineup for the Hoosiers, playing in his first collegiate event. He does come to IU with plenty of experience on the national junior golf level, having competed in the U.S. Amateur at Brookline over the summer.
Another freshman, Andrew Havill from Carmel, Ind., will also be seeing his first action as a collegiate golfer, as he will be competing as an individual this weekend.
BIG TEN GOLFERS TO WATCH
Mills, a senior, has played in every tournament since he arrived on campus four years ago. He has posted a career scoring average of 74.14 in 104 career collegiate rounds.
Andrew Fogg, a junior, came on at the end of the Spring season last year and found a way to break into the lineup. He played in each of the final four tournaments of the season, including the NCAA Regional in Fayetteville, Ark.
And freshman Will Seger was put on the list, as he brings a sterling junior career with him to Bloomington. In addition to his participation at the U.S. Amateur over the summer, he comes in ranked No. 42 in the country in his recruiting class and was the top ranked junior golfer in the state of Indiana when he ended his high school career.
