Ball State Cardinals College Football Preview 2021: Top Players
Best Ball State Cardinals Offensive Player
WR Justin Hall, Sr.
The receiving corps has excellent options – Yo’Heinz Tyler might be the most dangerous target on the right day – but the shifty Hall is the steady playmaker with 257 career catches averaging close to 11 yards per grab with 13 scores. In his fifth year, he’s a true No. 1 target who’ll also be an All-MAC return man again, too.

3. QB Drew Plitt, Sr.
4. OT Curtis Blackwell, Sr.
5. C Anthony Todd, Sr.
Best Ball State Cardinals Defensive Player
LB Brandon Martin, Sr.
Injured almost all of 2019, the 6-0, 232-pound leader of the D came back strong with a team-high 90 tackles with a sack and 6.5 tackles for loss.
Ball State has a big group of linebackers that all works around the man in the middle – he came up with double-digit stops in six of his first seven regular season games and made nine in the other.

Top Incoming Ball State Cardinals Transfer
WR Chayce Bishop, RFr.
Will he end up working as a corner or a wide receiver? He was thought to be a defensive back at Tennessee, but he’s likely going to be a deep ball threat for the other side. The 5-11, 190-pounder has special speed, and now he’ll try to be a home run hitter in a deep group of receivers.
