Lafayette (Ind.) Jefferson athlete Darian Green announced his committment to Ball State on Monday evening.
The 5-foot-10, 185-pound Green is the first commit for the Cardinals in the class-of-2014. Other schools showing interest included Indiana and Purdue.
"I realized that my future was there, and me and my family felt like it was the right place for me," Green said.
As a junior, Green rushed for 1,394 yards and 14 touchdowns. In Muncie the exciting playmaker will be used in a couple places on offense.
"They'll be using me at running back and the slot," Green said.
