Erie (Pa.) Cathedral defensive tackle Joe Blanks is a monster at 6-foot-3 and 305 pounds. The massive standout, who can also play guard on offense, is being recruited by several prominent D-1A schools and has an offer from his leader. Who is it?
“Nebraska is definitely my top school. Coach Callahan is a great coach, and I like how he brings experience from the pros.”
Who else is in the running for Blanks’ services?
“West Virginia and Pitt are also up there. I know both of them might be offering soon. Michigan State has also been writing me some hand-written letters recently and Akron has offered me.”
Blanks says that playing time will be the most important factor to him, and that he will make his decision on Signing Day. He will also definitely take his five official visits. And how is his surgically repaired knee (surgery around Thanksgiving) holding up?
“It is feeling pretty good right now, and it will definitely be 100-percent soon, I just don't know when."
