"It's a real nice school," Cry told MichiganVarsity. "They have been sending me letters. They came up to my school (around) a week ago. They have been up there around three or four times to talk to me, and they have been showing a lot of interest.
"They like me. They want to get me on campus. They want to just talk to me, and sending me emails, and a lot of good stuff."
At 6-foot-2, 215-pounds, Cry says he planning a trip Ball State in the near future and will be looking for certain criteria on his visit.
"Just how the family atmosphere is and how the coaches are," he said. "I always wanted to go to a school where it is like a family and the coaches want the best for you. That's what I am looking for."
Cry said Michigan State has invited him to their spring practice. Bowling Green and Toledo invited him to their junior days, as well. He said he has talked with Michigan defensive coordinator Greg Mattison and coaches from Indiana.
What exactly is Cry looking for in a program?
"How the coaches are," he explained. "The coaches who want the best interest for you. Because at the end of the day, I mean that's all that really matters is how the coaches really feel about you, and how they want you to succeed at in the college level. So that's what I am really looking for."
As far as decision timeline, Cry says he wants to checkout all his options before he makes his college choice.
"I'd rather just play the process out," he said. "I don't want to rush anything. It's real big decision. It's the college you're going to go to for the next four years. So, I'll just wait it out."
