Huskers in pursuit of JUCO OT

The offensive tackle position is always at a premium and typically the top, junior college tackles are plug and play on a current team. Dontavius Blair is one of the best junior college tackles in the nation this year.

Dontavius Blair from Garden City (Kans.) C.C. and his team had their spring game this past weekend. Blair, a 6-foot-7 and 300-pound offensive tackle, said spring practices went well and he's been working hard at keeping his tall frame low.

"Things are going great," Blair said. "We just had our spring game this past weekend. I have just been taking the spring day by day, trying to learn and I watched a lot of film.

"When I am run-blocking I don't have a problem staying low. It's out of the two-point that that I pop up and I have been working on that."

There have been a number of teams that have come through while Garden City was having spring practices to get a good look at Blair. The list is long so Blair just ripped off a list of the schools that he could remember had been by to see him recently.

"Mississippi State was here for my spring game. Tennessee was here to see me on Friday. Georgia was here a couple of weeks ago. Kansas State was on Thursday. Texas A&M, USC and Nebraska were here when it was snowing and we didn't practice. I just did some agility drills and ran for them."

Blair is getting ready to carve out some time over the next couple of weekends. He says that he will make the majority of his official visits over the summer and maybe leave one for the fall when his team has a bye weekend.

"I have 17 offers now I think. I am pretty sure that I will be taking about all of my official visits this summer and then might leave one for the fall for my bye week.

"I am going to be breaking down the teams over the next week or two that I will be taking official visits to see. I haven't even started to think about it yet."
