Cardinals add talented Michigan DB

Michigan DB wants to help "build something special" at Ball State

Ball State added another piece to their defensive backfield overhaul on Thursday when Grand Blanc (MI) DB Brett Anderson pledged to the Cardinals.

Anderson, a 5-11 173 DB, fell in love with the program, especially the coaches he will be spending the next 4-5 years with.

"Pretty much the entire staff," Anderson said when asked about the coaches he has developed a relationship with already. "Me and (Ball State DB) Coach (Chevis) Jackson and (Defensive Line) Coach (Keith) Mckenzie are all real close along with (Defensive Coordinator) Coach (Tim) Daoust. I love the entire staff they really welcomed me along with the other commits into the family."

Anderson also pointed out how special Ball State was on the visits he took to the school.

"The hospitality of the coaching staff, along with the desire to be great," Anderson said. "Really excited about the potential."

Anderson, who picked Ball State over offers from Eastern Michigan, Lehigh, Columbia and Colgate, knows that something special is brewing with the new staff in Muncie.

"Ball State is building something special," Anderson said. "I plan on helping Ball State bring the MAC championship back to Muncie. Ball State is going to be the "DBU of the MAC" thanks to Coach Jackson."
