Ballard is a heads-up player who looks at home playing a zone defense where he can sit back and read the QB’s eyes. He has jumped a few routes this season so far due to his nice acceleration and awareness. Senior is just a playmaker, and really explodes through his tackle attempts which was a bit surprising considering his size. Like Ballard’s instincts out there on the field and think he could end up as a cornerback or safety at the next level and thrive in a heavy zone principle defense. D1 schools absolutely need to check him out.
