Julian Blackmon is an Athlete from Layton HS who's stock is starting to rise. He has been at Mountain West Elite turning heads and plans to camp at multiple schools this summer. Julian plays WR and CB at Layton but it sounds like most schools are looking at him as a Corner.
"Most schools are looking at me as a corner. They like my aggressiveness and physicality. I think I can run with WR and have what it takes to play at the next level."
Layton HS has a become an important stop in recruiting for the Aggies and when I asked about Utah State he mentioned that.
"I like Utah State and they have been one of my favorite schools because they have so many instate guys. They are really focused on recruiting the state"
Blackmon could be this years instate recruiting battle. It will depend who offers obviously but the last few years we have seen a few guys take official visits to all 3 instate schools. It will be interesting to watch and see who offers and who offers first.
Julian is a guy that could get that offer when he shows up a team camp and the coaches get a chance to watch him in person.
