Neiron Ball has been one of the best kept secrets in the state
of Georgia this recruiting cycle, but with the release of his latest film, that secret got out and coaches around the country took notice of the 6'4", 210 pound defensive end.

At Jackson High School, Ball is a terror to opposing lines coming off the edge with 4.5 speed and long arms. The numbers he put up in 2008 are mind blowing as Ball racked
up 100 tackles, 35 tackles for loss, 19 sacks, and 8 forced fumbles.

With the production and potential Neiron has shown it's no wonder teams such as Georgia, Auburn, Tennessee, Clemson, Alabama, South Carolina, Nebraska, North Carolina, Florida, and LSU have all offered.

Who are the teams that stick out amongst his 20 or so offers?

"Georgia, Florida, and Auburn"

With the size and speed combination he has, there is a feeling amongst scouts that Neiron could play either outside linebacker or defensive end at the next level.

"I think I'm a good rush end slash outside linebacker, but most colleges are recruiting me as a defensive end" Ball explained "My strengths are my speed and my pass rush, but I think I need to work on getting stronger".

Being recruited as a defensive end, and after a recent string of defensive line commitments to Georgia; are the Dawgs still in the running?

"They were, but they have four or five defensive ends now"

Ball plans to visit the University of Florida's "Friday Night Lights" camp on Friday and says he is looking forward to the trip and experience.

"I'm excited about the coaches, the fan base, there's a lot of things really"

Is he excited enough that there is a chance for a possible commitment while in Gainesville?

"I think there is a great chance"

Neiron Ball is currently ranked #15 on our latest Georgia state rankings.
