At the end of it all there was a certain amount of comfort that Louisville (KY) Manual DB Bryce Cosby had with the staff at Ball State. It was that comfort and the ability to see great things in the Cardinals' future that led Cosby to commit to Coach Mike Neu and staff this weekend.
"It feels great because this was the right decision," Cosby said. "This was something I wasn't pressured into or felt obligated to do since my senior year was coming up. I visited multiple times, had great relationships with the coaches, and in turn, I made my decision."
Cosby, a 5-11 170 DB, had lots of schools to chose from - holding offers from Bowling Green, Army West Point, Navy, Air Force, Eastern Michigan, Georgia State and a couple of FCS schools - but it all came down the Neu and his staff. Not only because of the way they made Cosby feel off of the field, but the high expectations that they have set on the field.
"These are gonna be the people that I will interact with the most in the next 4-5 years of my life," Cosby said. "So by them showing such a genuine, persistent interest in me. It always kept them in the lead. I feel like the program is going to be a force to be reckoned with here soon. Coach Neu has a plan and we as recruits believe in it. Seeing all these guys committing to Ball State who can really play made it a no brainer that I wanted to join the family. I believe that we can be on top of the MAC soon."
Cosby has high expectations for his class and for the Cardinals squad overall.
"BSU (graduating class of) '21 is coming," he warned. And we believe him.null
