#STRecruiting: Former USC recruit Joe Blue plans to look around while in prep school

For over a year and a half, Dillon FB/LB Joe Blue remained committed to USC.  But earlier this month his attempts to enroll were twice rebuffed by the school.  After visiting Coastal Carolina and considering SC State, Blue has opted to enroll at Georgia Prep in Atlanta.

He has already reported for practice and will play linebacker.  Blue will have the chance to play in the Columbia area when the Lions take on Gray College Prep in Lexington on September 7th.

Blue said Thursday night his plan is to attend Georgia Prep for one semester and then resign with a Division One program.  And it won’t necessarily be USC.

“I don’t know yet,” Blue said.  “I’m looking around.”

Blue said he hasn’t talked with any USC coaches lately.  And he doesn’t have his eyes set on on specific teams at this point.

“I’m just waiting to see what comes thru,” he said.

So far, Blue said, no other major schools have reached out to him.
