Quin Blanding announced his commitment to the University of Virginia on Feb 27th at 2:30pmET. With Urban Meyer and tOSU, many feel with is far from a done deal and tOSU still has a legitimate chance at flipping Blanding. Blanding has yet to visit tOSU and has expressed interest in being a leader in his recruiting class. If he does schedule a visit to tOSU, or doesn't become a recruiting leader, it will give validity to tOSU's chances. If not, it will likely show that he will stick with his commitment to UVA. I'll keep you updated with any info that I come across for either case.
UVA, tOSU and FSU were to be the likely schools to land Blanding. Recently ago Rivals was reporting that tOSU was in the lead. Blanding was also supposed to schedule a trip to tOSU. FSU has been reported as Blanding's childhood favorite. According to Blandings 247Sports Timeline he has not visited either tOSU or FSU and has unofficially visited UVA six times.
