    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -

    The Indiana University Men's Golf team and head coach Mike Mayer announced the signing of three golfers that will join the team for the 2013-14 season. All three signees are from the state of Indiana and have extensive experience on the local, state and national level.

    The three signees are Andrew Havill (Carmel, Ind.), Will Seger (Jasper, Ind.) and Keegan Vea (Evansville, Ind.).

    "These three players will make an immediate impact on our program," Coach Mayer said. "They have a chance to contribute right away, with the ability to continue to lead our program on the national stage. They all have a tremendous amount of national experience and have all enjoyed success both statewide and around the country. They are best of friends while at the same time fierce competitors and I think they will bring the best out of each other. They are also outstanding young men with outstanding attitudes and we are thrilled to have them join our Hoosier family."

    Here is a little more info on each of the signees:
