Ball State Cardinal Commitment Capsule

Who: Mitchell Larsen >

Vitals: 6-1 185, S, Fairfield (OH)

Other offers: Bowling Green, Morehead State

Breakdown: Larsen does it all for Fairfield. He is a solid cover corner, which will serve well at the next level as he converts to Safety. He has a nose for the ball and good ball skills, so he should be able to generate turnovers. He isn’t afraid of contact, which is a bit of an understatement. The young man absolutely brings the heat. He has the explosive hip action and quick twitch to lay the heat quickly on opposing receivers and ball carriers. A great open field tackler, Larsen will also serve as a playmaker in special teams coverage.

Projection: I like what I see with Larsen. His ability to get down field and make plays on special teams adds value that will help him see the field right away. He has the combination of coverage skills and physicality that could translate nicely into the role of safety at the next level.
