After leading the state in rushing, where will Blume end up at on the next level? What are your thoughts?

I'm not sure where he will be, but I wish him the best and I thank him for all those wonderful and amazing memories he leaves us with.

I remember hearing he was going to go there. Don't know though.

I heard he had signed with Capital University in Columbus, OH. They're a D3 school. He said the fact that he will get to play immediately led him to go there. Also, his father lives in Columbus.

I hope that he was able to get some academic aid as many of the D3 schools are expensive and offer no athletic aid.

 

Whereever he ends up, I believe he will be an asset to that team. Was fortunate enough to see him play 3 times, and enjoyed it every time! Good luck to him! :thumb:

According to the Johnson Central people, he was a "Division 1" player. What happened?

 

I guess the college recruiters don't know what they are doing or they were biased in their opinion of Blume.;)

He may have or may not have been the best RB in the state this year, but I knew he wasn't going to a D-I school.

 

Thats not to say he wasn't a great high school football player, or that he couldn't have been a productive D-I guy. But big schools like big players and his size hurt him.

I still think he could have been an exceptional D2 or NAIA player or possibly a D1AA. I just want to see the kid get the opportunity to play at the next level and it looks like he will, just where I am still not sure. I had heard Morehead St initially as well.

It has nothing to do with class, just pointing out that most EKY fans don't really know what it takes to be a D1 player, or what one looks like.

 

I congratulate Blume on a great season and career and wish him nothing but the best at the next level. He is a great football player. However, the majority of us knew he would not sign D1 despite the support and push by the Johnson Central faithful that he was a D1 player and would indeed sign a D1 scholarship. We heard it all season long last fall and into the early part of winter. I trust the opinions of the college recruiters, and considering that no D1 school offered him a full ride, I take it that they did not consider him a player that could play at the D1 level. Sorry to dissapoint the Johnson Central faithful or any fan of Blume. I do however, consider him to be a "GREAT" h.s. runningback and his performance at Boyd Co. this past season will be talked about for years here in these parts. Good luck to him and I hope he gets a quality education while away at college. He is a great young man and player.

True, not everyone thought that about Blume, however, how often do we get on here every season and we hear about so and so kid from an EKY team that is going to be D1 and the fans of that team pump the kid up so much that the kid is actually let down after the season is over when he "doesn't" get a D1 offer? We see it all the time here on BG Preps.

 

IMHO, I think "some" not all, EKY fans are a little "unaware" of what it takes to get a D1 scholarship and how good you really have to be. It's not just stats, but so many things figure into a kid getting a "full ride" from a D1 school like height, weight, speed, strength, potential, "frame", grades, and ability to be coached.

 

I'm from EKY so when I made the statement earlier, I obviously wasn't including everybody in EKY. Just some.:cool:

I understand - NO offense meant or taken 3 :D

I kept it simple b/c many got mad over my critique of certain players last season ;):rolleyes::p

 

Sometimes loyal fans and those close to programs have a difficult time realizing that great HS performances don't necessarily translate into those big Saturday afternoon games we see on TV. As mentioned, there are a LOT of factors affecting future athletic participation. Some have a life path in other than academic pursuits so that can inhibit college choices. Some prefer smaller settings or being close to home.

 

I hope Blume lands in a good situation for him to get an education & continue playing football if that is what he desires. By all accounts he is a very hard working young man and a top quality person. Best wishes to young mr. Blume whatever he choses:thumb:

 

cheers, Woody Jr
