Blake is also a standout Baseball player and he is not sure which sport he will play in college.

"I am open to either Football or Baseball," he says. "We'll just see what my options are and go from there."

He plays at third base and shortstop.

His top school is Nebraska, followed by Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Colorado State, Air Force, and CU.

"Those are the schools I like but I will take a look at anyone who is interested in me.

"I do not know too much about Colorado but I am willing to find out. I love to go Snowboarding so that is a plus for them."

Cover already went on a Baseball trip to Kansas State and has plans to attend the Nebraska QB camp this summer. Although he most likely projects as a free safety on the next level.

"I am athletic and I adjust well on the field. I am very good in coverage on defense."

He carries a 3.88 core GPA and scored a 20 on his ACT. Blake is undecided on a major.
