is in the middle of a busy week is an understatement.

The 2014 tight end prospect out of Charlotte (NC) Christian already boasts an impressive offer list, a list that includes Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU, Michigan, Ohio St. and Virginia among others. As a result, the 6-5, 240-pounder is out with his family making sure that they get in a last round of visits before school starts.

That might conclude with a visit to Clemson on July 20th, a day when many of Clemson’s top prospects will be in town.

“We actually heard that Clemson would be having a lot of guys in, and we heard that Coach [Danny] Pearman wanted us to come down,” Blazevich told TigerNet. “We already knew that we were going to be at Alabama that morning, and we figured we could make it to Clemson that evening. I really want to be there, because that will be a great experience. We might be a bit late, but we will be there.”

’s camp last month.

“They had been saying for a while that they were going to offer me,” he said. “At camp, they told me the reason they waited was because they wanted to do it in person. I knew they could change their minds, but I had known since December that they were going to offer. It wasn’t a big shock. With Clemson, I already had a pretty good idea of what it was all about because I had been down there visiting my brother Davis, who goes to school there.”

Blazevich’s busy schedule started with Swinney’s camp, included a few days at Ohio St., and then picked back up when he visited Georgia this past Friday night.

“It was a good trip to Ohio St., because I had never really been to the state of Ohio,” he said. “I was excited to get up there. And once I got there, Coach [Urban] Meyer actually coached me 1-on-1 and gave me some good tips. And then at Georgia’s Dawg Night, I really enjoyed that because I haven’t been down there before.”

Blazevich’s hectic schedule starts again on Sunday.

“We are flying down to LSU on Sunday and we are going to visit there,” he said. “On Tuesday, we are going to Tennessee. And then we are going to take a few days to vacation in the mountains. And then we are going to visit Alabama on Friday and then make it to Clemson Friday evening. I haven’t talked to Coach Pearman yet to make sure, but I am pretty sure I will be there. It will be a crazy week, for sure.”

As a sophomore, Blazevich caught 32 passes for over 500 yards and six touchdowns. On defense, he recorded 68 tackles.

Blazevich said he wants to see what happens during the 2012 season, and then maybe make a decision next spring.

“We just want to see who is left, and what they did over the season,” he said. “We are going to get into April and May and see some spring practices and then take more time to think about it. And then I think I will commit somewhere.”
