"It's hard to really say where I'm at in recruiting," Blakely said. "I'm being recruited pretty heavily, so I'm just trying to take it all in."
Blakely said that he doesn't know much about the Hawkeyes as he's just started his research on the school and program. He said that his prep coach is talking to most of the colleges at this point.
"Those are my top schools," Blakely said.
As a junior, Blakely ran for 1,323 yards and 16 touchdowns. He also caught 30 passes for 313 yards and two scores.
"I'd say I'm a pretty good all-around back," Blakely said. "I need some work on pass blocking. I'm smaller at 175-180 pounds, so I need to work on learning how to block."
Blakely said he's looking to play in the Power-I offense or any attack that leans on running the football.
