McNulty Talks Ball State

2015 Bolingbrook (Ill.) defensive back Armani McNulty talks about his commitment to Ball State below.

Bolingbrook (Ill.) defensive back Armani McNulty made his college decision, committing to Ball State Thursday.

"I told coach Dixon," McNulty said. "I talked it over with my family and then I was sure that Ball State university was the right choice."

McNulty stands 6-foot, 175 pounds and was drawing interest from many schools, plus had offers from Eastern Michigan, Central Michgian, Buffalo, North Dakota State and of course Ball State.

"I really liked Ball State from the beginning," McNulty said. "But when I went on the visit it really tipped the scale, the campus was great."

He added, "Everything seemed new from dorms to the classrooms. The football facilities were great."

Plus, McNulty had a good connection with the coaching staff.

"All the coaches loved me, and then the football program is going to be solid for the next couple of years," McNulty said. "Back to back winning seasons and a bowl appearance last year. It was a program that would have been very hard to turn down."

The three-star corner knows that his skill set will also fit in well at Ball State.

"The great thing about Ball State is that it will be a smooth transition from high school to the college level because they run the same defense we do at Bolingbrook," McNulty said. "So some of the same things I do now I can translate over to the next level like pressing a wide receiver or playing the run, as well as being a great cover corner and playing the pass."
