Name: Joey Blount
Hometown: Fairburn, GA (Landmark Christian)
247 Composite: 3*, 81.00
Blount was an early commit to UVA, announcing his commitment in April 2016. He’s no slouch in the classroom, with offers from Brown and Princeton.
He has a slender frame but plays tough. He was a two-way star for Landmark Christian, and his QB tape is impressive in its own right. Blount shows good reads, shifting quickly from run-support to pass coverage on some of the play-action shots in his film. He shows off some nifty catches once or twice, too. Look for him to fit more as a free safety than the in-the-box SABRE role at Virginia.
