Blair Back from the Blue

Three-star defensive back Ladarryl Blair committed to Boise State in June having never been to Idaho, much less the City of Trees. The feeling of family and brotherhood that emanated from head coach Bryan Harsin & defensive backs coach Julius Brown convinced him he wanted to be a Bronco. So his visit to Boise State this weekend was his first true Boise State experience. So how did it go?

When the Dallas athlete flew into Boise Friday morning, he took in everything Idaho's capitol had to offer.

The result: Love at first sight.

“I really enjoyed myself,” Blair said Sunday night. “It’s really an amazing process I’m going through.”

Blair, a 5-foot-11, 170-pound standout from South Oak Cliff High School, was surprised by the size of Boise.

“The city in general surprised me,” he said. “It was bigger than I thought. I was expecting a rural area.”

Blair raved about his experience with his future teammates and coaching staff. He talked about a hype video that was played on the screen while he and the rest of the recruits watched from the Blue Turf. Blair spent most of his time in the company of defensive backs Dylan Sumner-Gardner, Darian Thompson and Donte Deayon.

“It was a feeling of family,” Blair said. “They support their brothers. It was a great feeling and I can’t wait to get up there and join them.”

When asked if anything else stood out to him while in Boise, Blair laughed and said, “It was solid. That’s it.”
