Derrick Nnadi just laughs off the pressure from his friend who just happens to be a highly rated prospect.
"I try to avoid him," the defensive tackle from Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes joked when asked about his weekly workouts with five-star Virginia safety Quin Blanding from Virginia Beach (Va.) Bayside.
Don't get Nnadi wrong. Blanding, isn't obnoxious. He's just persistent. Since committing to Virginia in February, Blanding, who is the No. 11 prospect in the ESPN 150, has been trying to get Nnadi to join him.
