Blunt getting closer

Rashad Blunt has a top five and is nearing a decision. The 2015 receiver wants to visit three more schools before he makes that choice.

Rashad Blunt has a top five schools of Rutgers, Cincinnati, Florida Atlantic, Temple, and ECU. He hasn't visited Rutgers or Temple yet, but he'll be there in the next week.

"That's going to be really big because those schools are all in my top five, so I'll have pretty much visited everywhere I want to go, so I'll probably be making my decision where I'm committing soon after that," Blunt said.

Also on that trip, the Jacksonville (Fla.) Creekside receiver will camp at Maryland. An offer from the Terps could shake up the top five.

"Maryland hasn't offered yet, but I'm hoping that they will," he said.

"I've visited Maryland and Maryland's receivers coach is kind of like an uncle to me. Maryland was where I always wanted to go to begin with, but they kind of slid because I didn't get the offer and a bunch of other schools offered. I still put them in consideration. I'm going to go to the camp and try an impress the coaches as much as I can. If they want me after I show what I can do, they'll definitely be one of the schools I'm looking at."

If he doesn't end up getting that Terps offer, it could be the Scarlett Knights that benefit.

"I want to see the others before, but Rutgers is probably the leader right now," he said.

"I don't go up north a lot, so I want to see how it is. I've researched a lot on Rutgers and I really like it. What's pulling me in with Rutgers is that they have a very good political science program. I want to be an attorney. That's one of the reasons they're at the top of the list."

Along with a solid political science program, Blunt will be looking for a few other things in his future college.

"(I'm looking for) a good political science program and a nice place that I can feel at home. Once I get to a place where I feel like that, I think I'll know right away," he said.
