Ball State has been trying to change around their ways under new head coach James Whitford.  He's looking to bring in a different type of player and his newest commit might be the guy that fits it the best.

2016 wing Kyle Mallers, a Fort Wayne Carroll product, committed to Ball State on Thursday afternoon.  He's a 6'7 scoring wing with tons of intangibles and and legit size on the perimeter.  His frame will need strength and Kyle will have to add to his driving game but his a fairly balanced scorer who can get to the rim a pretty well and keep the floor spread with range beyond the three-point line.  

Many in-state programs coveted Mallers and while his skill set is one that is tough to find, his makeup might be just as important.  Kyle is a high-academic, hard working talent that understands the game really well.  His ceiling might still be a little undefined as he continues growing but his ceiling is higher than most because of his makeup.

Mallers could find a role similar to that of standout sophomore Sean Sellers.  Sellers found himself quickly in Muncie last year as a good all-around scoring wing
