Joe Urso, Head Coach of the [U of Tampa] Spartan baseball team, said that the coaches saw Blanke progressing as a player and growing into his body. Urso said that Blanke was 5 feet 10 inches coming out of high school. On the roster for UT, Blanke was listed at 6 feet 4 inches tall. … “That was the big challenge, how he was going to develop as a catcher here,” said Urso. “He did a great job and everything I’m hearing from the White Sox scouts and the people we talk to is they’re just raving about this guy’s ability, not only as a hitter but now as a catcher as well.”

… Coach Urso said that Blanke is solid at blocking balls in the dirt and has good arm strength, but will have to work on his receiving ability and the speed of his release behind the plate.
