(BALL STATE RELEASE)

MUNCIE, Ind. — The Ball State football program added to its 2021 signing class Wednesday with three more high school standouts. Along with the recruits signed during the early period in December, BSU’s class now stands at 21.

The Cardinals’ latest additions feature Indiana’s Mr. Football in Center Grove running back Carson Steele, one of Florida’s top quarterbacks in Colin Blazek of Venice, and one of Missouri’s top wide receivers in Chevalier Brenson of St. Louis.

“Our program got better again today with these three phenomenal student-athletes, all of whom were among the top players in their states,” Ball State head coach Mike Neu said. “They are tremendous additions to this well-rounded and versatile signing class of 2021. We are excited about what the future holds for each guy in this class.”

The full class comes from across the Midwest and beyond, now with five from Illinois, four from Indiana, three from Missouri and Ohio, two from Florida and Michigan, and one each from Maryland and Virginia. The Cardinals filled positions all over the field in this class, signing four running backs, three tight ends, three linebackers, three defensive backs, three quarterbacks, two offensive linemen, two receivers and one defensive lineman.

The 2021 class will join a Ball State program riding high. The MAC champion Cardinals went 7-1 last fall, winning the Offerpad Arizona Bowl and finishing No. 23 nationally in both the AP Top 25 and the Amway Coaches Poll.
