Ball State added their fourth commit as OL Anthony Todd announced on Twitter. The two star recruit is Ball State's third in-state commit for 2016. Todd committed to the Cardinals, but had reportedly received interest from Indiana, Purdue, Minnesota, Buffalo, Ohio, Northern Illinois, Navy, and Indiana State.
Blessed to say I've committed to Ball State to extend my future in football! #ChirpChirp— Anthony Todd (@Anttodd7) May 28, 2015
Todd is also a dual sport athlete at Yorktown High School with baseball to go along with football. Todd plays first base and helped lead his team to the sectional championship.
We were fortunate up to catch up with the 6-foot-4 305 pound offensive lineman to ask him what made him choose Ball State.
"Ever since (Ball State) started to recruit me, I felt like all the coaches and I clicked well. Also my best friend Riley Neal is going there and I thought playing with him for a little longer would be a blast!"
Neal and Todd both grew up in Yorktown, Indiana and have played football together since third grade. Neal was a three-star quarterback who highlighted Ball State's most recent signing day class. These two best friends may eventually become prolific pieces in the Cardinals' future offensive scheme.
