    Indiana freshman men's golfer Jorge Campillo headlined a Hoosier freshman class that earned the No. 3 ranking in Golfstat's final Freshman Class Impact Ranking of the fall season. Campillo carded a team-leading 72.87 mark and appeared in all five of the club's tournaments. The Caceres, Spain, native recorded four top-25 finishes and produced the team's best finish in four of the five events. Campillo's tie for 14th at the Gopher Invitational (Sept. 17-18) was his best finish during the fall.
