Mobile (AL) St. Paul's DB Bradley Flott found out that Ball State had offered when one of his assistant coaches pulled him aside at school to tell him, but it wasn't until he told his mother the news that it sunk in completely.
"It is the greatest feeling in the world to see the look on my mom's face when she found out," Flott said of telling his mother the news of his first scholarship offer.
Flott, a 6-2 175 DB, admits that he doesn't know a whole lot about the Cardinals' football program, but that isn't stopping him from wanting to visit the Indiana school when the chance comes up.
Flott is being recruited by new Ball State assistant Chevis Jackson, who is a Mobile native. Ball State, who is stretching its recruiting area to new parts of the country, has not had a player commit from an Alabama High School in several years.
Aside from the offer from Ball State, Flott said that he knows that Tennessee has inquired about him, but doesn't have a lot of teams recruiting him yet.
Flott, is a long and rangy DB that projects either as a cover corner or a safety at the next level thanks to his size.
"I'm a a ball hawk I love catching picks," Flott said of his game. "I'm 6'2, so that helps a lot with preventing deep balls. I have good footwork and I'm very competitive. I feel I can win against whoever is in front of me."
