Braxton Blackwell is adding high-major offers at a steady rate but is not close to cutting his list anytime soon.
The 6-foot-8 2016 small forward from Nashville (TN) Christ Presbyterian recently added a Louisville offer and also holds offers from Florida, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Ohio State and Kansas.
“He has no order of schools and no list yet,” CPA coach Drew Maddux told SNY.tv. “He is wide open.”
Blackwell is a special talent who should have his pick of schools.
“He has a unique skill set for his size and a great feel for game,” Maddux said. “He has a high IQ and vision. As a defender, he’s capable of guarding anyone on the floor.”
