Three-star ATH Ball sets decision date

By Jared Shanker

Three-star athlete Marcus Ball (Westerville, Ohio/Westerville South) has set a date for a final decision.

The Wisconsin commit said Wednesday he will announce on signing day whether he will remain with Wisconsin or sign elsewhere.

"It won't get released until signing day," he said.

Signing day is Feb. 6. The event will be held at Ball's high school.

Committed to Wisconsin since November, Ball began looking at other schools when Bret Bielema left for Arkansas in early December. He officially visited Illinois, Michigan and Arizona State as well as Wisconsin. He was slated to visit Tennessee last weekend, rescheduled for this Friday, but then canceled the visit.

Ball received an in-home visit from new Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen on Sunday and a visit from Arizona State on Monday.
