"I'm would compare myself to Fred Russell and Warrick Dunn," Ball said. "I have speed, balance and vision."
Ball indeed has speed. He has been timed in the 100 meter in 10.7 seconds. He also has tremdous strength for his size with a 450 pound squat.
In addition to Florida State, he has offers from Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Northwestern. His favorite schools are Florida State, TCU, LSU, Miami and Northwestern.
"I like Florida State a whole lot," he said. "They aren't afraid to play smaller backs like myself. I plan on camping there over the summer."
