Ball State Cardinal Commitment Capsule

Who: Damon Hazelton >

Vitals: 6-3 205, Reisertown, MD (Franklin)

Other offers: Florida Atlantic, Kent State, Delaware, Maine, Rhode Island, Villanova

Breakdown: The first thing that jumps out on film about Hazelton is his size. At 6-3, Hazelton is an immediate matchup problem for DBs. His 6-3 is strong and sturdy already, and he will only get more physical in college. The second thing that jumps out is his ball skills. He fights through traffic to get the ball and high points the ball well using his height and jumping ability to outcompete defenders for the ball. Hazelton is not lightning fast, but solid on a straight line.

Projection: Hazelton gives the Cardinals offense a much needed boost of size and skill on the outside. Until he develops fully, Hazelton will be a solid target in the redzone and also as a field stretcher. Look for Hazelton to also be an exceptional blocker as his career progresses as he has the size and tools to dominate defenders on the second level..
