Purdue Football: Elijah Ball Signs LOI

Coach Brohm snagged an in state corner that blew up this summer.

NCAA Football: Indiana at Purdue Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Elijah Ball

Position/Size: Defensive Back (Corner), 6’1”, 190 Pounds

Ranking: 3*

Other Offers: Cincinnati, Colorado State, Ohio, Miami (OH)

Impact: Elijah Ball didn’t even have offers in February. Now he is headed to the B1G.

Eli Ball hits that mark of long and tall athletic defensive back that Nick Holt wants on defense. This is a theme with this defensive back class. Some claim that the corner headed to Iowa is the best corner in Indianapolis.

I disagree.

Ball is better. Time will prove me right too. Elijah is one of the prospects I am most excited for. We lose both of our starting corners this year, do not be surprised if he comes in and steals a starting spot. His competitive edge is second to none.

I got the chance to watch him play in the state championship game. While it wasn’t much of a game, the ball rarely came to his side of the field, they knew better. #Ballisland is a real thing.

Take a look at his highlights.

Welcome aboard, Eli. Boiler Up!
