Blair is in a very uncomfortable position. He has released Howard and Williams so that they may contact/visit other schools, but he states they are welcome to return/remain with A&M. So, it's like these 2 players are holding Blair hostage until they make their decisions. In the meantime, Blair has to fill unexpected holes with his roster; he didn't even sign but one or two players for the 2018 class. And, he also lost freshman Emer Nichols to transfer.
