Class of 2018 four-star cornerback Al Blades Jr., form Fort Lauderdale (FL) St. Thomas Aquinas, is hoping to visit Michigan soon.
"I haven't planned a visit yet," Blades told The Michigan Insider. "Hopefully soon though. I want to meet the coaches and see how we connect and see the campus."
The 6-foot-0, 170-pound athlete said that Michigan is one of the schools that is standing out to him. He currently has a list of schools that are impressing him, but he is not sharing the entire list at the time.
Blades has offers to play for Miami (FL), Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, LSU, Maryland, Michigan, Michigan State, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma, Penn State, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCF, UCLA, West Virginia, Akron, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Fresno State, Ohio, Temple, and Texas-San Antonio.
"Michigan is a great program and it seems it would be a great fit for me," he added. "My mom thinks the same thing (about Michigan)."
The cornerback picked up his offer from Michigan on February 7th. He will attend The Opening Finals in Beaverton, Oregon, which starts on June 30th.
Blades is the 33rd-best cornerback in the 2018 class. He is the ninth-best at his position in the state of Florida behind Patrick Surtain, Tyreke Johnson, Brookie Radley-Hiles (Nebraska), Tyson Campbell, Gilbert Frierson (Miami), Isaiah Bolden (Oregon), Sevyn Banks (Ohio State), and Asante Samuel Jr. (Florida State).
