Blake busy setting up remaining visits

For talented wideout Emory Blake, the last few years haven't exactly been easy. Plagued by injuries for large portions of his sophomore and junior seasons, Blake showed flashes of brilliance but wasn't able to make the sort of impact he would have been able to had he been 100% healthy.

Well, if we saw flashes of his ability over the last two years, we're seeing it on full display now.

"This year has been pretty good so far," Blake commented. "We're 2-1 so far. We just lost to Westwood on a last second field goal, but it was a good game. We're improving each week, so that's the important thing."

Blake has lead the way to that 2-1 start with the sort of stats you'd expect from a four-star prospect.

"Let's see, through three games, I know I have about 700 all purpose yards," he answered. "I've got 8 touchdowns as well. That's passing, catching, running, and returns. Most of that has come from receiving though."

The star athlete says this is the healthiest he's felt in some time, and if you asked anyone who's watched him play this year, they'd probably agree.

His stock on the recruiting trail has picked up as well, with offers from Kansas and Boston College coming his way recently.

"I have my newest two offers," he explained. "That's Boston College and Kansas. As far as other recruiting stuff goes, I know Missouri came by and saw me today and Kansas will be coming to my game this weekend."

Blake recently took an official visit to Boston College and came away impressed. Though he doesn't know where he'll use all of his remaining visits, he does have two scheduled right now.

"I'll be going to Colorado not this weekend, but next weekend," he explained. "And then on November 1st I'll be getting to go out to Texas Tech. I'm pretty excited about both of those."

While Blake says he isn't sure where else he might visit, he did offer some potential insight by detailing his top five schools at this point.

"I would say right now it's Boston College, Texas Tech, Missouri, Florida, and probably Kansas."
