Cedar Hill, Texas cornerback Anthony Blue is the latest member of the loaded high school team to watch his scholarship offers grow by the day. A few new offers got Blue on the road for an unofficial visit this week and he's come back with a new leader.
The 5-foot-10, 172-pounder, who holds offers now from Baylor, Purdue, San Diego State, Tulane, Wisconsin, Houston, Wyoming, UNLV, and Nebraska. Blue and his dad made their way up for a Big 12 visit this weekend. Things seemd to have gone well.
"We're just heading home from Nebraska," Blue said. "We were out there yesterday morning for an unofficial visit. They offered at the beginning of the month and we decided to go up there. It was real nice."
The Huskers lead despite new offers this past week. Blue says that his relationship with recruiter Ted Gilmore and his recent visit made the difference.
"It's just the academic stuff, the graduation rate, and they get all of their players taken care of with school first and then athletics are second," he said. "My dad really liked that."
Nonetheless, Blue says he's still open to listening to other schools and isn't in a rush to make a decision yet.
"I haven't really thought about it," he said about a timeframe for committing. "I'm not sure when I plan on doing it. I just want to hear what everyone has to say first and then go from there."
Blue doesn't have any other definite dates for visits planned at this time.
