From the KC Star in July:

Blue Springs South coach Greg Oder said Blanton, who committed to the Tigers in March, was listed at 6 feet 5 and 225 pounds last season and has since sprouted to 6 feet 7 and 240 pounds, perhaps the ideal size for a player at a position that takes on increased importance as Missouri adjusts to the rough-and-tumble Southeastern Conference.

"His potential is probably unlimited," said Oder, whose team ran almost twice as much it threw last season. "He’s got a long way to go, but he has a high ceiling because of his ability."

Blanton, who said he ran a 4.82 40-yard dash last summer, also boasts a 33-inch vertical and impressive bloodlines. His father, Jerry, played linebacker at Kentucky and spent seven years in the NFL, all with the Chiefs.

A lanky, interesting tight end, Blanton committed to Mizzou nearly a year ago and finally got a chance to sign his Letter of Intent. His early commitment perhaps dinged his recruiting ranking a bit, but his athletic upside is impressive.
