Ball State target has 5 offers

Athletic LB from Ohio boasts 5 offers from Mid-American Conference schools including Ball State. Read on to see who has offered and who else has interest.

Dan Molls is an excellent athlete. At 6-1 215 he is already solid size to play LB at the collegiate level, factor in his 4.57 speed and his weight room exploits, it looks as though Molls is a no-brainer when it comes to Division 1 coaches. After watching film, though, is when Molls' athleticism shines through.

"I am currently running track for the spring," Molls said of his off-season sport choice. "I used to play baseball, but I decided to switch when I came to the conclusion that I wanted to go to college to play football."

Molls will definitely be doing that in about 18 months as the Padua Franciscan LB has already raked in 5 offers from the likes of Ball State, Kent State, Bowling Gree, Miami of Ohio and Ohio U. But his recruiting probably won't just stop there.

"Some other schools that seem to be pretty interested are Central Michigan, Pittsburgh, Akron, Indiana, Wisconsin, Stanford, Vanderbilt, and South Carolina," Molls said.

But despite all the focus on him and his recruiting, Molls still is thinking team first.

"Off season is going real well" he said. "Our team had a very strong winter training session. Many goals were reached and there were many visible gains in attributes and performance, including myself.

"My plans for the summer are to pick up where I left off with the winter training program. I have a job for the summer working in landscaping. I do plan on attending camps. As of now though, I am not sure which ones or how many, I have to make a schedule and see where I can go."

So what is Molls looking for in terms of a college?

"The factors that will impact my decision the most would be to just be comfortable with the school, the educational opportunities the school provides, having a chance to play, and the coaching staff." Molls said.

Stay tuned to to see how Dan's senior season pans out.
