LB Roderick Blunt (6-2 215) of Miramar, FL who already has offers from USC, Purdue, and Wisconsin received additional offers from Mississippi State, UCF, and South Florida. His father, Rondey Blunt played RB at Clemson from 1989-93.
Blunt says his son likes USC. "They were one of the first to offer him and they've recruited him hard. Just because I went to Clemson doesn't mean they've (Clemson) got him. They still need to recruit him." Blunt says he wants his son to go somewhere he feels comfortable and can graduate. "We want him to go to a school where he feels good. I'm not always going to be there for him so he needs to be somewhere he can grow up real fast."
Roderick visited FSU for Junior Day this past school year and liked what he saw. "He enjoyed it. It's a good school, but really, they're all good schools."
His dad is guiding Roderick's recuitment and just wants him to make a good decision. "The pigskin changed my life. I'm a Federal Agent now and love my job. I want him to take advantage of what football can offer him." Blunt runs a 4.5 40 and says his strength is playing sideline to sideline.
