Blood still waiting for his first offer

NDSCS DL Andrew Blood (6-6, 300) is an underrated defensive prospect on a roster loaded with talented D-1 quality players. JCFootball.com got an update from the talented defensive linemen and he updated us on how the summer has gone and what his plans are this fall...

Blood prepped at Badger High School in Wisconsin and decided to continue his football career at North Dakota State College of the Science for a multitude of reasons.

"It was still pretty close to home, but I wanted to get out on my own and that was appealing to me," Blood told JCFootball.com recently. "The coaches here were really cool and they showed me they wanted me and they had a plan. I've been really happy here."

As a freshman in 2008, while playing both defensive end and inside at tackle, Blood managed to post 26 tackles, five tackles for loss with a sack as well. This season he expects more from himself.

"I've been working hard this summer to get bigger, stronger and faster," Blood said. "I've been really focused on my technique and how I use my hands and my strength as well.

"I want to have a big sophomore season and if I do I think I can pull in some offers."

On the recruiting front, Blood hasn't gotten a ton of interest at this point, but he has received some letters from schools like Iowa State, Ole Miss, Akron and Oklahoma.

"Honestly I don't really consider that interest," Blood said. "I think with a big season I can get some offers, but right now I don't think anyone is that serious about me yet."

Blood will finish his two-year degree in May of 2010 and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
