It's not often fans get to see high-end recruits truly open up to the world. They are mostly restricted to their responses to the basic recruiting questions -- who's in your top right now? What schools are recruiting you the hardest? Got any visits planned? When do you think you'll make a final decision?
Al Blades Jr., one of the top 2018 prospects who is already set to play in that year's Under Armour All-America game, is changing that, debuting his recruiting diaries with a comprehensive video introducing himself to the world.
Even those who are already familiar with the St. Thomas Aquinas defensive back's work will learn a lot about him by watching his in-depth video, which covers a wide range of topics.
Blades isn't sure how often he will continue putting videos out, but by the looks of the debut, it will be a series to follow throughout his recruitment.
