Watch List safety ready to reveal decision

By Corey Dowlar

ESPN Watch List safety Quin Blanding (Virginia Beach, Va./Bayside) is ready to make his decision.

The 6-foot-2, 196-pound prospect, who competed in Gridiron Kings over the summer, is down to a final group of 10. And his declaration, he confirmed to ESPN, will come at 2:30 p.m. ET Feb. 27.

"Yep, and it is the top 10 I posted," he said.

That group includes Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Michigan, NC State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Virginia and West Virginia.

Back in August, Blanding said he wasn't going to think about recruiting until after his junior season.

"I am just looking to lead my team and go game by game," he said then. "I am just trying to make it far into the playoffs and looking to be a team leader and have fun."
