"Coach (Terrell) Buckley talked with my coach about me a couple of weeks ago," Robbie Blosser said. "He told him that he loved my film and that they were very interested in me. I am leaving first thing in the morning and I am really excited about getting down there. My dad is going with me and we're both looking forward to the trip."
Blosser shares that he had a conversation with Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen about the Bulldogs' needs at quarterback. With Nick Tiano and Damien Williams both transferring out of the program, the Bulldogs have some openings on the depth chart. As it stands now, fall practice is set to begin with just two scholarship quarterbacks, returning starter Nick Fitzgerald and January enrollment Keytaon Thompson.
"Coach Mullen told me that they had a couple of guys leave, but that he wanted me to come in and compete," Blosser said. "I am a guy who likes to compete and I am just looking for an opportunity to get better and to help the team get better. He told me that once you get there that everybody has to compete and it doesn't matter who is on scholarship or not. He said the best players will play."
The talented signal caller will be joined in Starkville this weekend by teammate Deommodore Lenoir who is being recruited by the Bulldogs as a corner. Blosser reports that the two have been friends and teammates throughout their careers together.
"He is an amazing athlete," Blosser said of Lenoir. "I feel like we made each other better everyday in practice. With him playing corner, I always had to be on top of my game. He played some at wide receiver too. We have a great relationship. I know both of us want to be amazing college players no matter where we end up. I have enjoyed playing with him and it's pretty cool to be able to take a big trip like this with him."
Mississippi State is not the only program pursing Blosser as a preferred walk-on. Several coaches have reached out and expressed interest in the 6-2, 200 pounder.
"I have been talking with Cal-Berkely, San Diego State, San Jose State, Fresno State, North Texas (offer), Vanderbilt and a few others," Blosser said. "Some of them I am looking at for academic reasons and others for more about football. I have always wanted to have the chance to play big time football, so I have a lot to think about."
After the visit to Mississippi State, Blosser will sit down with his family and work towards the end of the selection process.
"I want to take this trip and then start making a move towards a decision," Blosser said. "It's a big decision and I have some good opportunities. I just need to sit down and figure out what is best for my future academically and football wise."
As a high school senior, Blosser completed 146 of 201 passing attempts (72%) for 2,539 and 28 touchdowns against just eight interceptions. Mississippi State is recruiting Blosser as a preferred walk-on with the possibility of a scholarship at a later date.
