After a lineman heavy recruiting class a year ago, Ball State is adding a lot of athleticism in this year’s class. Their most recent commitment will definitely bring just that.
3-star wide receiver Justin Hall announced Hall announced a top three of Ball State, Ohio, and Georgia Southern earlier in the day. He announced his decision just a few hours later.

Outside of his top three schools Hall reported FBS offers from Colorado State, Georgia State, Troy, and Western Kentucky.
At 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, Hall will most likely work out of the slot at Ball State. It looks like Hall can develop into a valuable asset for the Cardinals in coach Neu’s offensive scheme.
According to RecruitGeorgia.com, Hall compiled 987 receiving yards on 74 receptions for 11 touchdowns as well as 204 rushing yards for four touchdowns.
It is clear that the Ball State coaching staff is fired up about the addition of Hall, as running-back coach Kevin Lynch sent out this clever subtweet about Hall’s commitment.
If there’s one thing that Hall will bring to Munchie, it’s versatility. Coach Neu will have plenty of different ways to incorporate Hall into their game plan on a weekly basis. This versatility should allow for him to compete for a spot on special teams early in his career, before eventually developing a role in the offense.
