It's always tough to discount a guy with a motor. Especially when that motor comes along with 6-foot-8 size and above average athleticism.
That's certainly the case with Ft. Lauderdale (Fla.) Dillard senior Staphon Blair.
The power forward's game is all about being relentless, attacking the glass and using his athleticism.
"My strength is getting a rebound, blocking a shot and I can hit a jumper a few times," Blair told Rivals.com. "I'm a power player, I go hard every time. I don't stop, I don't really get tired, I just keep going."
With that non-stop motor, maybe it shouldn't come as a surprise that Blair has spent the fall running cross country. That also means that schools that want to see him have to come and watch him at cross country practice.
So far, according to Blair, Wyoming, Missouri, Alabama, Georgia Southern, Marshall, Florida Gulf Coast and Ohio State have made it out to watch him run.
Blair has taken official visits to Wyoming and Marshall. This week he'll check out Georgia Southern and next weekend he plans to head to Missouri.
The power broker says that he's not worried about distance when selecting a school. There are bigger factors to him.
"I'm going to look at who they are recruiting at my position," he said. "I want to look at if the coach is going to stay there because that could change and I could end up with a different coach."
