Evan Blankenship, a 6-3, 300 pound offensive line prospect already has three offers in the bank entering the end of his junior year in high school.
"Right now Ohio State, Pittsburgh and Temple are my offers," Blankenship told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am hearing from Clemson, Boston College, Michigan, Maryland and Notre Dame."
When asked if he has any current favorites in the recruiting process, Blankenship responded, "I am trying to keep everyone at the same level. I don't really have any favorites as of right now."
The talented lineman also has several summer camps on the schedule. "I am going to camp at Ohio State, Notre Dame and Michigan. Those are the three that I know of so far. I am not sure of anywhere else yet. I'm still talking it over."
What other visits has Blankenship been on this spring?
"The most recent visit was to Clemson. I went down there for one of the junior days. I got to see them practice. I got to tour the facilities. It enjoyed the visit," he said.
"That was my most recent visit. I haven't been able to take any other trips because of track. We just finished track two days ago. I will see some other schools this summer."
A verbal commitment should come from the star offensive lineman over the next few months. "I want to commit before my senior year," stated Blankenship.
What will be most important when the Pennsylvania standout selects a college? "I will look at three things," he said. "Athletics, campus life and academics. I would like to major in Education or Astronomy."
When asked about his strengths and weaknesses in a recent interview, Blankenship said, "I can say my strength is my feet. I used to play basketball and I think that's really helped. I can read the blitz really good and I'm a great pass blocker.
"What I need to work on…speed. Getting up the field, trying to run down linebackers, that's what I'm trying to work on. Also, staying on my blocks. I have a LB coach I'm working with right now. We're doing a lot of drills that are focusing on my agility and speed."
