A little over 24 hours after picking up a verbal commitment from three-star wide receiver Khalil Newton, Mike Neu and the Ball State coaching staff have received a pledge from another talented class of 2017 prospect.
On Friday evening senior linebacker Michael Robinson of Allatoona High School in Acworth, Georgia announced via his Twitter page that he will leave the peach state for Muncie, Indiana.
“The coaching staff was just welcoming. I built a really good relationship with the linebacker coach, coach Curtis and I just felt good around the current players. I talked to a few on my visit and I just felt good. Also they recruited a lot of guys from my area. Why would I not want to go ball with the same kids in my area? That's what I liked most about Ball State.” Robinson stated to Hustle Belt soon after announcing his commitment to Neu and crew.
Receiving scholarship offers from more than 12 programs, the 6’1 205-pound Robinson is the 23rd overall prospect to give Neu and the Cardinals coaching staff a commitment. Before ending his recruitment, Mid-American Conference programs such as Buffalo, and Kent State were reportedly among the schools that showed interest in Robinson throughout his recruiting process.
