Ball State defensive tackle commit Adam Morris recently made his third trip out to Muncie, IN this past weekend, and had a chance to finally see the renovated Scheumann Stadium. "It was my first time seeing the stadium, and it was better than I expected."
Adam says the reasons he made an early commitment to the Cardinals are simple. "It was just a gut feeling for me, and I think they're a team on the rise. I also like that they play a tough non-conference schedule." He also added, "There's just something about Coach
Hoke and the other coaches, they were so enthusiastic about their current players and about me joining the program."
The 6'0" 290 pound lineman out of Dublin, OH most likely projects as an anchor in the middle of the line for the Ball State defense, but he is ready to play anywhere he can to contribute. "They see me as a nose in the three man front," Adam said. "I just want to work hard in off-season, and be ready to play wherever they need me."
For right now Adam is focused on getting his 4-3 Dublin Scioto squad into the difficult Division I postseason. After that he will be vying for a trip to the regionals in track & field, where he is a top performer in the area in shot put and discus.
