RB Mike Blakely (5-9 194) of Bradenton, FL says his focus at this time is on USC, Florida, Auburn, Tennessee, Ole Miss, Southern Cal and North Carolina. He camped this month at USC and Clemson.
"I really fell in love with the campus," Blakely said of USC. "I talked to coach Mangus a lot and coach Graham. They told me they would use me at slot, running back and special teams. There's a chance to play early."
Blakely has 33 offers and is not sold on any one school right now. He said he's always liked Florida but he grew up a Florida State fan. But FSU is not a factor because it hasn't offered. And he said he would have no problem leaving is state.
Blakely said he might go to Florida's Friday Night Lights camp in July.
