"At this time we're just taking it slow," Bluiett told GoBlueWolverine. "I think official visits for juniors start in January, so I definitely want to experience that. I've always wanted to be on an official visit, so we might experience that first; then after that start narrowing and start talking about it."
As far as which schools might make Bluiett's visit list once the period opens up, the young man hopes to see as many as possible, with some of the local schools having an advantage via location.
"I definitely go visit the in-state schools just because they're close locally, but pretty much every college that has offered me I want to go see what they have to offer," said Bluiett.
Although traveling to in-state schools is easier, Bluiett insists that doesn't mean he'll be afraid to leave the nest to attend college.
"Not really, because if I go to a school—say Florida offered me, if I go to a school and I like everything they have to offer I'll go there," said Bluiett. "It's just what they have to offer, what I like about it and that type of stuff."
One school a little further north that has turned up the heat on Bluiett since a scholarship offer was extended is the Michigan Wolverines. While Bluiett was a priority from the beginning, the Wolverines have clearly picked up the communication since his visit in June.
"We've been close ever since they offered," said Bluiett. "At first as we were texting I didn't think we were going to be that close. Coach Jordan would text me every now and then; but then after the visit I got a bond with him. Every coach, Beilein, Alexander, Meyer, I got closer to them. So they text me and we talk every now and then, asking how school was, that type of stuff. I think as the recruitment for them has picked up a lot for me, we've become a lot closer."
With the relationship expanding between Bluiett and Michigan, does that mean the Wolverines are eager for a decision to be made?
"Really they just told me to take my time," said Bluiett. "They don't want me to rush. They don't want to be the type of coaches to rush somebody's decision. When you do that, the player feels pressure and goes to a college that maybe he really didn't want to go to. Coach Beilein told me to take my time. He wanted me to know that Michigan was always there for me."
With Bluiett's timeline extended next into basketball season, the Wolverines recently went out and offered another 2014 small forward in Pickerington Central (OH) high school's Jae'Sean Tate. Although both players play the same position, Tate and Bluiett possess many different attributes as players. Michigan still felt the need to give Bluiett's father a call to let them know the situation.
"They didn't talk to me but they talked to my dad before they offered," said Bluiett. "They told him they were going to offer and everything, just to inform us. That was fine with me. I didn't mind that at all. That's what colleges have to do. They have to go out and hunt and find players they think they need to play. It really doesn't matter to me. But they did talk to my dad before they offered him."
The recruitment of Bluiett doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. Meanwhile, with basketball season just a few months away, Park Tudor and the crew are working everyday to replace what they lost and prove the 2012-13 team can follow suit with a state championship for the third straight season.
"We lost a major part," said Bluiett. "We lost seven seniors last year and I think four of them started for us including Yogi (Ferrell), so he's a big missing piece. But we worked hard in June, we plan on working hard in practice, act like we didn't win the two state championships and that we still have something to prove. Everybody thinks that we can't do it without Yogi, but we have something to prove. Our goal right now is just to make it to state, but at the same time we're going to be humble and we're just going to prove everybody wrong and still play our game."
