Josiah Blandin is still committed to Arizona State but wants to take official visits so his recruitment will stay interesting through National Signing Day.
The Long Beach (Calif.) Poly wide receiver recently picked up offers from Colorado, Oregon State and Hawaii and Blandin said this past weekend at the Dana Hills Air Strike Passing Tournament that he wants to explore all options through next season.
"Nothing has changed," Blandin said. "Arizona State is still standing out to me out of all the schools recruiting me. I have a couple more schools and I'm still wide open with options but Arizona State is still No. 1.
"I really want to look around more. I have offers right now and it's still early because I have a whole other season. I still want to keep my options open and look around a little bit."
Blandin, a 6-foot-4, 185-pound three-star prospect, said he talks regularly with Arizona State wide receivers coach Steve Broussard and that the Sun Devils are still his favorite but like his teammates - Richard Smith, Randall Goforth and Salamo Fiso - who are also committed to Arizona State he doesn't want to limit his options.
Being committed but looking around might be confusing to some but Blandin said he's just rolling through his recruitment and still considering all options. The Poly standout said he would like to take official visits to Arizona State, Colorado, Cal and maybe even Miami.
"People ask me, 'Are you committed to Arizona State and are you going there?'" Blandin said. "I'm committed right there right now but I have another year and things could change before signing day.
"I talk to coach Broussard every other week and he asks me how I'm doing and about my grades. Two weeks ago he asked me if I was still solid and before that he never asked me that. They know I'm still with them."
