The offensive tackle position is always at a premium and typically the top, junior college tackles…
Blair now up to 14 offers and counting
"Things have been going well for me," Blair told JCFootball.com earlier this spring. "I've got plenty of offers, but right now I'm sorta just taking it all in. I'm wide open and I am working hard to get ready for the season. I'll start focusing on it more this summer and when I take my visits this fall."
As a freshman this past season, Blair started seven games at left tackle while splitting time with a redshirt sophomore who started ahead of him.
"When I got here, they have a rule in Kansas that you can only have a certain amount of out-of-state guys on your roster, so I had to fight against that rule to get on the team," Blair, an Alabama native, said. "I had to make the team and be one of the 15 out-of-state guys who made the team and then there was a guy who had been here a couple of years already who was playing.
"They would move him to guard sometimes, so that is when I got to play and then I started like six or seven games."
With his long arms and outstanding feet, Blair has the skills to be a solid left tackle prospect and because of his lean frame, he still has plenty of room to grow.
"I'm 6'7" and 300 now, but I want to get bigger and get stronger this offseason," Blair said. "I definitely have room to grow and I'm working on doing that right now."
On the academic side, Blair has been hard at work getting his courework completed so he's on pace to graduate in December and he will have three years to play two following the 2013 football season.
