Indianapolis DE/LB On His Second Visit

Ball State received a follow up visit from one of the Top LB/DE prospects in Indiana.

Indianapolis Pike DE/LB Ramon Stallings visited Ball State for spring practice on Saturday, it was his second visit to the Muncie, IN campus, but he still came away impressed.

"The visit was very fun and I enjoyed talking to the coaches and watching their practice," Stallings said. "How active the coaches were during the practice stood out to me the most. They were always talking to the players explaining how to do things. Especially Coach (Joey) Lynch - no matter where I was on the field watching them practice I could always hear his voice."

Another thing that stood out to Stallings during the visit was the Cardinals' newest member of the coaching staff - new Defensive Coordinator David Elson.

"Coach Elson yelling eyes....eyes...and grab grass," Stallings said. "Defensive intensity starts with the head."

Stallings, who has bulked up to 6-1 220, has been making the rounds on college campuses and getting his name out.

"So far I have been up to Notre Dame, Indiana, Toledo, North Carolina and Purdue." Stallings said. "Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Rutgers and Purdue have showing interest."

The son of a coach, Stallings has a lot of tools that college coaches are looking for in a versatile player on the edge, whether it is at DE or LB.

"I'm a very good tackler, I don't blow tackles," Stallings said. "I get off blocks and a read well. I'm a high motor guy. My dad is a high school coach so I'm a student of the game and love film.  I'm a leader, but I lead by example.  I'm becoming more vocal."
