UVa One Of Two Offers For 2014’s Blanding

Bayside (Virginia Beach, VA) standout Quin Blanding may only be a sophomore, but he already boasts two major FBS scholarship offers. One is from the University of Virginia, the school the 6’1″, 195-pound prospect visited unofficially last Saturday.

“It was my first game there. It was pretty nice there,” Blanding said of his experience at UVa’s 24-21 win over Georgia Tech.

UVa offered Blanding late his freshman year (the same day Bayside junior Taquan Mizzell was offered by the Hoos), and N.C. State has since come through as well. A number of other programs are showing serious interest, but the Virginia Beach sophomore’s focus lies elsewhere at this point in his high school career.

“I’m not worried about offers. I just want to get my grades right, and I’ll think about this other stuff my junior and senior year,” Blanding said. “I want to see more teams. I just want to get my grades right first.”
