Mike Neu and the Ball State football program received some great news on Tuesday morning. Just days after having Kings Mill standout Dan Sichterman on campus for a visit, the class of 2017 defensive end is now the latest prospect to give the Cardinals coaching staff a verbal commitment.
“I chose Ball State for a lot of reasons. I had been able to develop a great relationship with the coaching staff over the past few months and I know they are bringing the program in the right direction.” The 6’3, 235-pound senior stated to Hustle Belt as a few of the reasons why he decided to pick Ball State over reported scholarship offers from programs such as UConn, Air Force, Eastern Kentucky, Fordham, Holy Cross, and Youngstown State.
With plenty of options on the table, Ball State offered Dan, who finished his junior campaign with a team leading 10.5 sacks, everything he was looking for in a program.
“Ball State is close to home and where all my relatives live so I will have a lot of support from my family over the coming years and I value family a lot. Ball State is a place that I think I will be able to make a big impact at, and the coaches will definitely lead me into the right direction.” He added on his pledge to the Cardinals.
Dan isn’t the only Sichterman heading to compete on the Division I level next season. His brother Matt, a three-star offensive tackle, will attend Nebraska, while his sister Megan is currently committed to swim at the University of Tennessee.
