The early signing period has really been a boon to the so-called Group of Five schools as they’re able to put nice little bows on their signing classes before Christmas and check out the recruiting landscape after most of the big names are already off the board. One such player that was still available in the “late” (read “old”) signing period was DK Blaylock, a massive 6’5” 170 lb. (Pit has a little work to do) wideout from New Deal High School (New Deal, TX). The lanky wide receiver visited over the weekend and apparently was quite taken with the trip as he announced his commitment to the Broncos a few moments ago.

Boise State had offered Blaylock all the way back in August, but at the time, he was an Iowa State commit. Well, things changed a bit with the Cyclones and he de-committed in early December, which made him a priority for the Broncos to get on campus, even though their wide receiver class was already really good for 2019. Hey, we can be a little selfish here, right?
Blaylock helped his squad to a 15-1 record this last season and a spot in the Texas Class 2A Division I state title game. His senior year also saw him rack up over 1,100 yards of offense and 20 TDs. Whoever gets the starting quarterback gig in 2019 and beyond is going to have some options. Blaylock (eventually) chose the Broncos over offers from Iowa State (natch), Abilene Christian, Bowling Green, Illinois, Kansas, New Mexico State, Southern Miss, Texas State, UTEP, and UTSA. He’s rated a high-ish 3-star by 247sports with an .8567 overall grade. As usual, it’s a bit better to actually see the kid in action rather than listen to me quote numbers that don’t mean all that much. And what does “DK” actually stand for? Don’t know.
