"I'm excited because they want me, that's first and foremost," Blue told Scout.com. "The A-10 is one of the top conferences and I'll be able to play right away.
"They want me to come and play. They're graduating Marcus Stout. They want me and Jio Fontan to run the team for four years. They want to score the basketball and get up and play up and down tempo. They said they need me to come in and score baskets right away."
Blue won't be returning to his Midwest roots and said he's becoming quite familiar with the inner workings of ball on the East Coast. "I like it out here on the East Coast. There's nothing like home but I'll get used to New York."
