Donte Williams straight up busted his ass to get Elijah Blades to even consider Nebraska. He busted his ass to get a visit from Blades. And now, he should celebrate.
Blades, who committed to the Huskers just a few moments ago, has already faxed his Letter of Intent into Lincoln. He is officially a Nebraska Cornhusker.
Blades is the 138th best player in the entire 247Sports composite rankings for the year 2017. He is also the 16th best Cornerback in the entire ‘17 cycle, and the 18th best player in the state of California in this cycle.
Besides Nebraska, Blades had offers from USC, Florida, Arizona and Oregon among his Power 5 and FBS offers.
Expectation: Blades is definitely a guy that can come into Lincoln and get the chance to get on the field almost immediately. He’s stated that he’s open to either Cornerback or Safety, so his flexibility will help his cause. He could probably use to hit Runza and gain a couple pounds for durability.
