"I got the offer from Coach Kill," Blasingame told GopherDigest. "He called me during spring practice and he told me that I had gotten a offer. It was great and it felt good getting an offer from Minnesota because it was my first offer and it is Big Ten ball. It was just a very exciting time for me."
Relationships are a huge part in recruiting and defensive backs coach Jay Sawvel understands that by bonding with Blasingame as well Gopher quarterback commit, Dimonic McKinzy.
"I like Coach Sawvel a lot," said Blasingame. "He is a really cool guy and I have a pretty good relationship with him. The education up there is really good and what they are doing is building a pretty good program."
"Dimonic talks to me and he talks to me about how he likes Minnesota. We talk about other things, but we are friends and he is a real cool guy. We talk every now and then, but he does respect me for letting me do what I got to do in terms of a decision and I respect him for that. Still, he is a Gopher, so he puts in a good word for them."
"My recruitment is going good," said Blasingame. "I got offers and I am hearing from other various schools, but I got no leaders or top list right now. I haven't really sat down and laid everything out and thought about it. I do know distance and weather will not be a factor. You can always buy jackets and catch a plane."
"My camp schedule is almost over, but I got two more camps in July with them being to Ole Miss and Georgia Tech. As far as visits, I don't really have anything planned because I want to focus on the season and working out with the team and getting better."
Blasingame is preparing once his summer comes to a close on camps to shift his attention back over to his game and describes what a scout in the stands would see from him.
"I play smart and I feel like if I got an advantage, then it is going to be above the neck," said Blasingame. "I think I got pretty good feet and instincts. I make a lot of plays and try to be a leader out there."
