After recently securing a verbal pledge from offensive lineman Dominick Mathis (Indianapolis,IN/Warren Central) Ball State has added another under-the-radar gem to their class of 2016. Loveland (OH) quarterback Drew Plitt walked away from his Wednesday visit to the Ball State campus as the fourth and latest prospect penciled in to play his college ball in Muncie, Indiana for head coach Pete Lembo and crew.

QB | 6'3 | 200 lbs.
Joining Mathis, tight end Dylan Koch (Plainfield,IL/Plainfield East), and lineman Anthony Todd (Yorktown,IN/Yorktown) in the class, the 6'3 200 pound, Plitt decided to fly with the Cardinals over scholarship offers from programs such as Bowling Green, Eastern Michigan, and Lafayette.
Coming off of a 15-0 State Championship season in 2013, Plitt helped lead Loveland to an overall record of 6-4 as a junior and was named Second Team All-Eastern Cincinnati Conference after accounting for 1,346 yards and 13 touchdowns through the air.
Loveland head coach Fred Cranford had the following to say to the Cincinnati Enquirer soon after Drew's commitment:
"Drew's quarterback style and talent will allow him to be crazy successful there. Ball State is getting a championship, high character quarterback. Ball State loves his talent and style, his leadership and quarterback intangibles."
