He's been clocked anywhere from a sub 4.4 to a low 4.5 forty which makes him one of the faster players in the south this season. Recently he showcased his speed with a kickoff return against Douglas High.
"That was my first kick return for a score this season," said Ball. "I've gotten a lot of long ones, but that was the first one I got to score on."
Ball has come up with a lot of big plays on defense for the Jaguars. He hs 43 tackles, 10 pass break ups, and three interceptions on the season. Has he drawn the eyes of any college recruiters?
"Georgia Tech has offered me a scholarship, and South Carolina seems close. It's really just those two schools that I'm looking at. I've been to every Georgia Tech home game though to watch my brother (Reggie) play. I don't really like to travel that much. I haven't committed yet, but Georgia Tech is my leader."
One has to think it's only a matter of time before Raeshon and Reggie Ball are teammates once again.
Editor's Note: Ball will in all likelihood receive an offer from South Carolina in the very near future - height seems to be the only drawback. But the inside scoop is that Ball may need an exceptional test score to enroll at Ga Tech - the jury is still out on that one which could give South Carolina an edge before all is said and done.
