Blair has visits set up

Staphon Blair has made two official visits with another two coming up shortly.

One of the hardest working post players in the 2012 class is Staphon Blair. The Pompano Beach (Fla.) Dillard High School center is now in the process of making visits and is looking to make his college decision.

At 6-foot-9 and 240 pounds, Blair is a big presence down low. Playing with the Florida Rams over the summer he was known to be one of the better rebounding players in the class, and someone who had a motor that never quit. Also Blair showed that off at the Adidas Superstar Showcase hosted by Rams AAU chief Matt Ramker.

"My mindset is to show everybody what I can do," said Blair. "I just come out here and try to have fun and to play hard."

For Blair the key to his game is to give maximum energy all the time.

"I don't stop, I keep going," said Blair of his play. "I don't get tired like everybody else, I keep going. It is natural, and I work on it. I run cross country and work on my conditioning."

So far Blair has hosted numerous schools during the fall contact period. Coaches from Alabama, Florida Gulf Coast, Georgia Southern, Marshall, Missouri, and Wyoming have all come by to watch him run cross country.

According to Blair he has already made two official trips, with another two visits set up for the next two weekends.

"I took two official visits, one to Wyoming and one to Marshall," said Blair. "I am supposed to go to Missouri and Georgia Southern as well. I will go to Missouri on October 15 and Georgia Southern this Friday."

With interest from all over the spectrum in terms of conferences, Blair says he is focused on finding the right fit, and not getting hung up a school's conference affiliation.

"I am just looking for a good spot where I can fit in," said Blair. "I don't really look at the conference a school is in."

For now the three-star center isn't sure if he is going to sign in the fall or wait to the spring, but he does know that whenever he decides he will be bringing a high energy presence to that team's recruiting class.
