Blake Graham Talks About His Visit to Rutgers

Blake Graham, from Northeast Catholic High School, is a two-way lineman that can also play the interior or end on the defensive side of the ball. Currently holding one offer from West Virginia, Graham had a chance to catch a Rutgers' scrimmage on Saturday.

"I got there a little late, so I didn't get to see the whole scrimmage," Graham said. "It was nice. They have a nice facility and one of the biggest weight rooms in the country. I thought the weight room was good."

Since he arrived late, the 6-foot-5 280 pound lineman didn't get a chance to meet with Head Coach Greg Schiano. In a previous interview, Graham said he wanted to go far away for school. While he still does, it doesn't rule the Scarlet Knights out because his family doesn't want him to move a great distance from home.

"I do want to get away," he said. "But my mom and grandmother don't want me to go too far. They wouldn't mind if I went south though because I have family in the area."

There's no top five list yet for the two-time First Team All-Catholic player, but he is interested in West Virginia, Rutgers and Michigan.

Outside of the Nike Camp held at Penn State, Graham wasn't able to pinpoint what other college camps he would go to, but said he does plan on attending a few summer camps.

In what will factor into his final decision, Graham said a school that has his major, which is plans on majoring in either law or business, a school that his family finds suitable with and a team he feels comfortable with.

"I want to go to a place with my major," he said. "Also, it has to be a place where my mom and grandmother are okay with. I also have to like the team after I check them out."

That final choice can come at anytime to Graham.

"No timetable yet, unless I definitely like the school and my family is okay with it."

As a junior, Graham had 16 pancake blocks and allowed only two sacks at offensive tackle. On defense, he made 21 tackles, seven tackles for loss and three sacks. He was a first-team All-City selection as a junior.
