Michigan DE takes in Spring Game

Ball State hosted several players for their spring football game on Saturday.

Berkley (MI) High School DE Jake Bills has seen his recruiting start to take off recently, especially from Ball State, whom he visited for during the Spring Football Game on Saturday.

"The visit was great," Bills said. "It was my second time out there in two weeks and I love it."

Bills, a 6-4 240 DE produced 3.5 sacks and 25 tackles a season ago in his first season of varsity football, says there was plenty to be impressed with at Ball State.

"I got to see the weight room, which is an intense place with the Strength and Conditioning Coach (Dave Feeley)," Bills said. "The thing that stood out the most was the relationship these players have with everyone. It really was a big family. Coach (Pete) Lembo and Coach (Nick) Sitaras really stood out, they are my main reasoning for loving this school so much."

So with two visits already under his belt, what are the prospects for an offer?

"Not yet," Bills said. "I am hoping though. They are planning a visit to come see me next month at school."

Bills states that he is currently being recruited by Saginaw Valley, Northwood, Hope, Ohio & Wayne State.
