Swisher Adds Ball State Offer

Ball State is looking to add depth to the Defensive Line via a Junior College Transfer.

Ball State and Head Coach Pete Lembo, are not afraid to reach into the Junior College ranks to pull out talent to help the Cardinal Football team. On Thursday, the Cardinals looked to add another option to the defensive line when they extended an offer to John Swisher of Iowa Western CC.

“Their D-line coach (Nick) Siatras told me,” Swisher said of the news he had received the offer from the Cardinals.

Swisher, a 6-2 280 DT, also holds offers from Charlotte, Western Illinois, UT-Martin and Indiana State. Despite all the offers he is narrowing down his options to just one or two visits.

“I don’t have much time left (before signing day),” Swisher said. “So Ball State (visit) and possibly Charlotte too.”
