Carson Steele will be wearing a new jersey next season as the sophomore running back announced in a Tweet today that he will enter the transfer portal.
"I want to thank Ball State for taking a chance on me when no one else believed in me," Steele said. "The coaches, players and staff have been more than great to me for the last two years and I'm so thankful for the friendships that I have made and I will cherish them forever."
Steele, who broke out in his freshman season before gaining national recognition for his performances this year, rushed for 2,447 yards and 20 touchdowns in two seasons with Ball State. In 2022, Steele accounted for all 14 rushing touchdowns the Cardinals scored as Ball State finished 5-7 and missed out on a third-consecutive season of bowl eligibility.
"... My family and I have decided that it would be best for me to enter the transfer portal for my remaining years of eligibility," he continued. "Again, I would like to say thank you to Ball State for the last two years and I wish nothing but success for their program as they move on."
