"Auburn, Georgia and Florida—not in any order," he says of his favorites. "I'm looking for great academics, of course, and great team chemistry, which Auburn has.
"It went well. It went real well," he adds of his visit. "It wasn't what I expected, it was better than I thought. I viewed the campus. I thought the campus was going to be boring, but actually it was more exciting than boring. I met some of the guys and some of the coaches. The coaches are great.
"(It was) way better than I thought," Ball continues. "I wish I had come earlier so I could have had time to know these guys."
Asked what the best part of his visit was, Ball responds, "The way the coaches treated me. They've got great team chemistry. There's great chemistry between the players, me, the coaches, Coach (Ted) Roof and Coach (Tracy) Rocker, Coach (Gene) Chizik, all the guys."
Ball's older Brother, Neland Ball, is a sophomore defensive end at Georgia who was also recruited by Auburn.
"It came down to Auburn and Georgia, so he loved it (Auburn)," Neiron says.
Ball plans on visiting Auburn, Georgia and Florida before making a decision.
"(Georgia has) four defensive ends committed, but I'm going to give them one more visit to see what everything is looking like. That helps out Auburn and Florida.
"I'm going down to Florida for the Friday Night Lights camp this Friday," Ball continues. "It'll be my second trip (to Gainesville)."
"I'd say it's going to be before my high school season," Ball notes.
