The shooting happened “off grounds” in Topeka, Kansas, at an opportune time Sunday.
The pair, both 23, played for Washburn Ichabods yet Ballentine – who is relied upon to make a full recuperation – had quite recently been picked in the NFL draft.
College president Jerry Farley said it was a “horrible way” to end multi day that ought to have been a “festival”.
Dr Farley added it was intended to have been “multi day to anticipate Dwane’s forthcoming year at Washburn and the start of Corey’s expert vocation”.
In an announcement, the Giants said they were “mindful of the lamentable circumstance and keep on social affair data”.
“We have addressed Corey, and he is recouping in the medical clinic. Our musings are with Dwane Simmons’ family,” included the Giants.
