Elijah Blades is a four-star cornerback out of Pasadena, California so it probably comes as a surprise to most that he will be headed east to the only school in the eastern time zone that offered him a scholarship.
The 6’2″, 170-pound cornerback will get to add to the “DBU” legacy that Florida has been building for some time now. Blades turned down schools like Nebraska, Arizona, BYU and Utah to head all the way out east to Gainesville.
Blades is rated as the No. 26 cornerback in the country and the No. 26 player in the state of California.
