We posted an update on wide receiver Desean Blair last night, but as you would expect, there was more news today. Bobby Petrino visited Blair at his high school (Sandalwood) in Jacksonville, Florida. “We talked about school, academics, family, the offense, the defense, his history with good programs, all of that,” Blair said. “I like him a lot. Hes’s a good person and my grandpa and dad like him.”
A wide receiver surely would like Petrino’s offense right? Blair said “He (Petrino) said they get it around a lot. It’s kind of pro style.”
After this past weekend’s visit to Nebraska, Blair said that they (Nebraska) were his favorite. After today’s visit from Coach Petrino, there is no favorite, making this weekend’s visit to Louisville huge. When asked what he is most looking forward to from his visit to Louisville, Blair said “If I feel like I fit in and get along with the staff.”
He also has one more visit after Louisville, and that will be to Missouri on January 31. They have always been in the picture with him a little bit, but started to contact him again when Charlie Strong left.
ESPN lists Blair as a 4-star wide receiver.
