Waukesha West (Wisc.) kicker Steve Drida makes his decision to attend Ball State.

Ball State continues to add to their 2013 class, picking up Waukesha West kicker Steve Drida this week. The 6'0, 184-lb Drida says who he will be working with come college played a huge role in his decision.

"I really liked the coaching. I like Coach Lustig, who's going to to be my coach. I like the philosophy, what they stand by: togetherness and family. I like all of the coaches, and the facilties are nice too."

Immediate playing time was also a factor.

"I will be competing with the guy they have now. I have an opportunity, if I beat him out, to kick as a true freshman."

Drida says rather than wait through the season, he wanted to jump on the offer to a place he felt very strongly about.

"It's nice to secure that spot. It really helps that I had such a great program to come to and that I was able to be recognized by them. I have a teammate, Connor Stefanski, who's a year older, who's going to be there. It's nice to anchor this down and put the focus on my high school season."
