Cardinals add late addition to Class of 2010

Cardinals add late addition to Class of 2010

Ball State picked up another player for the Class of 2010 in a surprising twist on Thursday.

Center Grove DT Joel Cox was supposed to go to West Point at the end of summer and don the Black Knight uniform this fall, but things didn't go exactly as planned. So now Cox finds himself the newest member of the Class of 2010 for Ball State.

Cox, a 6-3 275 DT, had verbally committed last winter to play for Army, but because of back and asthma-related issues, he was unable to get into the United States Military Academy, forcing him to look elsewhere for a chance to play college football.

And Thursday, he did just that, signing his letter of intent papers to play for Ball State University and Coach Stan Parrish.

Stay tuned to as we talk with Joel about the process and his decision to come to Ball State. Recommended Stories
