Blanton claims no leaders

In January, Rivals250 to watch safety Robert Blanton out of Matthews (N.C.) Butler claimed four schools were leading for his services. Now the 6-foot-1, 175-pounder has changed his tune and claims that no schools lead for his services.
"I don't really have any favorites," he said. "For the most part, I like all the schools that are showing me interest and offering. I wouldn't say anyone is leading.
"Mostly I'm looking for great academic standards, a place I'm comfortable at and somewhere the staff has the best interest for me in mind. Location doesn't really matter; it's going to come down to whatever college I like the most."

Previously Blanton claimed that Louisville, Virginia Tech, South Carolina and Michigan were standing out.
This spring will be busy for the junior safety as he plans to visit a handful of schools.
"Actually I'm planning to go see Virginia Tech, Wake Forest and Virginia," he said. "I'm headed to Wake this Saturday, then Virginia on the 24th and then Tech. Tech doesn't have a junior day, so I'm planning to go up for a basketball game some weekend. I really want to go and see how all these schools work and what the program is like in the offseason."
Along with visits, Blanton plans to partake in the Nike Camp at Wingate College in Charlotte.
