Commit No. 4: WR Clayton Cook

After going the offensive line route with the first three commits to the 2015 class, Ball State picked up a verbal from a  potential deep threat with commit No. 4.

Syracuse, Indiana wide receiver prospect Clayton Cook committed to the Cardinals back in mid-May, nearly a full month after the Cardinals picked up their third commit.

At 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Cook has a solid frame that already makes him bigger than many MAC receivers. His hands and speed make him a solid prospect for the Cardinals high-octane offense which turned into one of the top passing attacks in the nation in 2013 thanks to talented wideouts.

Considered a Top-30 prospect in the state of Indiana, Cook is another great in-state grab for a Cardinals program on the rise.

Repeated attempts to contact Cook for an interview were unsuccessful.


Commit No. 3: OG Andrew Poenitsch

Shortly after notching his first two commits for the 2015 class, Ball State head coach received a verbal from 2015 offensive guard prospect Andrew Poenitsch in mid-April.

The 6-foot-4, 285 pound prospect hails from Sussex, Wisconsin, and is regarded as the No. 11 player in the state for 2015. Needless to say, getting the early verbal from this 2-star prospect was a nice get for the Ball State class.

Like the previous two members to BSU's class, Poenitsch is a big offensive line prospect, who seems best suited to be an interior lineman. While Ball State was his only confirmed offer at the time of his commitment, he was receiving interest from several B1G programs, including Iowa, Nebraska, and Wisconsin.


Commit No. 2: OT Zac Ricketts

Back in mid-April, 2015 offensive tackle prospect Zac Ricketts pledged his commitment to Ball State University. The 6-foot-5, 290 pound Bremen, Indiana native provides the Cardinals with a solid o-line prospect.

Considered a Top-30 prospect in the state of Indiana, Ricketts also continues head coach Pete Lembo's tradition of locking up high-caliber in-state prospects. Ricketts has the frame to contribute to the o-line early on, but his skills need some work.

Considering the success Ball State has had with grooming offensive lineman lately, a season under the tutelage of Lembo and his staff should help the currently unranked prospect turn some heads.
