This year is no different, and Ball State is really taking notice, as Thursday saw two of the top players from the area make visits to see the Cardinals in spring practice.
One player, Columbus North's Keenan Noel, officially picked up an offer from the Ball State coaches during his visit. Noel, a 6-1 240 athlete that has played multiple positions as a prep, projects as a TE/H-Back/FB hybrid that can split out or line up in the backfield, a position the Cardinals use a lot of in their offense.
Also in town was Columbus East's Shane Henderson. The 6-1 185 WR is a shifty and effective playmaker who surely is high on the Cardinals radar.
