Detroit Crockett's Brian Blackburn is one of the most physically impressive quarterbacks in the Midwest, and now he has his first scholarship offer. The 6-5, 220-pound signal caller received word of an offer from an in-state school on Tuesday.
"I got offered today by Central [Michigan]," Blackburn reported. "It feels good and I'm relieved to finally [have an offer]."
Blackburn was informed of the offer in a conversation with Central Michigan head coach Dan Enos Tuesday afternoon.
"I got on the phone with Coach Enos and he liked my size, liked that I am a good quarterback and smart," Blackburn said.
"They saw me at Michigan State last year when I ran a 4.55 40 and they liked that about me too."
Central Michigan has recruited the city of Detroit extensively in recent years, and the proximity of their campus to his home means Blackburn is plenty familiar with their program.
"I like their program a lot," he said. "I know a few guys on their team who went to Crockett and another guy who just signed with them."
Blackburn has also been receiving regular attention from the likes of Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Iowa, Toledo, Colorado and Washington State.
