2014 TE latest to receive Gator offer
Charlotte Christian School tight end Jeb Blazevich has had a busy spring as far as offers go, one that he said he knew he needed to have. Today he received offer number 12 from the Florida Gators, increasing the number of SEC schools that have offered thus far to five.
"I called coach [Derek] Lewis and he offered over the phone," Blazevich said.
To this point, Blazevich is perfectly fine with the way Florida handles recruiting.
"That's how they do business and they stick to it, so I respect that. I'm fine with it," he said.
As far as his interest in the Gators goes, the sophomore, who has no leaderboard yet, was honest. "I don't know yet, I mean yes, but I'm still trying to discern between colleges. But it's SEC so yes."
One thing he does know is what he wants in a school. "I want a coach with integrity, a school that will help with the development of my mind and chance to go to the league, and somewhere with winning seasons and great traditions."
He'll begin the process of searching soon, but with the offer coming from the Gators after a lot of his summer trips were already scheduled, he doesn't know if there is going to be room for a trip to the Sunshine state. "We might be all booked up because this one [offer] is so late, but I'll probably come during the season for a game or later just to get on campus."
As for now, he knows it's time to start researching the schools that have offered up to this point, and he know some tough decisions are ahead.
"It's gonna be hard again to decide where to go in the fall for games, it all depends on what we find out when we research them," he said. "It's a great problem to have I just gotta study up on all this stuff."
This summer, Blazevich is set to take visits to UGA, Clemson, Ohio State, LSU, and he'd like to get on campus at Virginia as well.
The first on the schedule is Clemson, which he'll travel to next Friday.
