All of that has helped him not only get recruited but to get his first offer according to his coach.
"...Another that has been offered by UTEP but has not accepted, his name is Ryan Lindblade", said Coach Wiatrek.
Joey Mbu is the only other player with offers and he has committed to UH. Lindblade is a player who has great size but the conventional thought was his lack of playing time on varsity would slow offers down and he would have to wait to get offered. Apparently not as UTEP has made the first offer.
