Muncie, In- Ball State third-year head football coach Pete Lembo announced the 2013 recruiting class. The recruiting class features 21 signees from nine states. The Cardinals signed student-athletes to national letters of intent from North Carolina, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Missouri, Florida and Oklahoma.
"We are excited to welcome this outstanding group of student-athletes to Ball State, Muncie and to the Mid American Conference," Lembo says. "This fine group of new players is the result of a year's worth of hard work by our coaching staff. It has been a pleasure getting to know these young men and their families throughout the recruiting process. We have added a lot of talent to our roster with this class, but perhaps more importantly, we are surrounding ourselves with some terrific leaders and charismatic personalities. Two new Cardinals have already joined us for the spring semester and we are anxious to get the rest of them on campus this summer."
Ball State's recruiting class includes 14 student-athletes that were team captains at their respective schools, and 11 who own at least a 3.0 grade-point average on their high school's 4.0 scale.
