In 2015, Blueface attended Fayetteville State in North Carolina. He chose the school, on the complete opposite side of the country from his home state of California, because they gave him the best offer for a football scholarship. “I wouldn’t have went to school if I wasn’t playing football,” he told Big Boy in December. As a high school student, he attended five different schools, chasing the best opportunities and trying to increase his chances of becoming a legitimate star athlete.
As Blueface tells it, he was supposed to redshirt his first year, but the starting quarterback, a fifth-year senior, got injured. The coach pulled Blueface off the bench for one game (a 57-27 loss to West Georgia) in which he threw for two touchdowns and no interceptions. Then, the senior QB recovered and Blueface went back to the bench. It wasn’t long before he dropped out. “I left before the report card even came out,” he said.
