” They were the first place that believed in me and didn't just look at how many stars or offers I had,” Plate said. “They recognized a hard worker and devoted football player that has high potential.”
The speedy and overlooked, 5-10 170 receiver fits perfectly into the Ball State offense. Another large factor in his selection of the Cardinals.
”Coach (Alex) Bailey and Coach (Joey) Lynch think I can be a huge threat as a slot and on special teams,” Plate said. “They said they love to have fast slots to go up against match ups with linebackers. They consider me a steal.”
Plate, who boasts a 4.39 40 time, had one more message to coaching staffs around the nation.
”Teams are going to be sorry they overlooked me.”
