"After my performance, I hope an offer is coming soon," the 6-foot-0, 170-pound cornerback from St. Thomas Aquinas in Fort Lauderdale, Florida said. "I have interest in Michigan because of their rich history and what they have ahead of them as a program."
Blades has offers from Miami, Akron, Alabama, Auburn, FIU, Florida Atlantic, Florida State, Fresno State, Georgia, Kentucky, LSU, Maryland, Michigan State, Mississippi State, Missouri, Ohio, Rutgers, South Carolina, Temple, UCF and West Virginia. The Maize and Blue could be next on that list of prestigious programs.
"I feel like I showed that I have a lot of skill and that I'm very coachable," the four-star said. "I didn't allow a pass to be caught on me, but it's all about developing."
If Michigan were to offer, Blades said that the program would easily make his Top 5 or 10.
"It would be pretty cool," Blades said regarding the possibility of playing for Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh. "He has a lot of knowledge and connections."
