One of the 2022 class quarterback contenders Indiana is interested in was on an unofficial visit to the Hoosiers on campus yesterday. Caden Veltkamp of Bowling Green (KY) South Warren HS, six feet tall, weighed 215 pounds, traveled to Bloomington to see the IU program and train for the coaching staff.
The three-star recruit said the highlight of the visit was the opportunity to hang out with Tom Allen and some of his assistants.
“The trainers were great,” said Veltkamp when asked what was noticed about the IU visit. “They were very hospitable and I loved the way they trained me. I finally got to know Coach Allen, which I was looking forward to. “
Veltkamp said that while at Coach Allen they spent most of their time talking about things other than football.
“Coach Allen was great,” he said. “We only talked about personal matters.”
The talented prospect was given a tour of the facilities and was impressed with Memorial Stadium and all that is there for the players.
“You were really nice,” he said of the facilities. “I liked the facilities and the stadium was great.”
Veltkamp also had a chance to see Bloomington town and the Indiana campus, and liked what he saw.
“Bloomington was a great city and the campus was beautiful,” he said.
The Kentucky native did personal training for the Indiana coaches and they told him he did well.
“It was good,” he said of the personal training for the IU staff. “They said they liked me and had a few more people coming on campus that they wanted to see.”
Veltkamp currently has offerings from Akron, Appalachian State, Kentucky, Miami (OH), Western Kentucky, and Indiana State. He is the tenth best candidate in Kentucky and the number 42 pro-style quarterback in the country in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.
