Earlier this summer there was speculation that a member of the Cincinnati Bearcats would be on the move to the MAC. Thursday, that came to fruition.
Ball State announced in a release that Joshua Posley has transferred into the football program. Because of NCAA transfer rules, the defensive end will have to sit out the 2014 season.
He will have two years of eligibility remaining beginning in 2015.
“We are pleased to welcome Joshua to the football program and the University community,” Pete Lembo said in a statement. “We have known him since his high school days at Warren Central and have built a strong relationship with the coaching staff there. Joshua is an outgoing guy and a strong student. … We hope he transitions well to a new environment this fall and is ready to compete for playing time once spring practice arrives.”
A pair of high school teammates, Darnell Smith and Anthony Winbush, are already with the Cardinals, which likely played some role in the transfer decision.
Posley, an Indianapolis native, played in four games during his two years with the Bearcats.
