Blitz is great for support, and here's why:
1) His abilities have effects that don't benefit from items.
Hook, uppercut, silence, haste- none of them benefit much from ap or ad. His mana barrier passive really only needs a tear, which should be in the very beginning of your build. Blitz basically doesn't need money- and he'll get enough assists in the early game that you'll always have more than you expected.
2) He can't heal, but he will keep pressure off of your carry.
People fear the hook. And they should, since it is usually followed by even more cc and tons of damage from your carry. Win your lane by intimidation.
3) Blitz translates surprisingly well into late game.
You'd think that all that single target cc would mean he's gonna suck in teamfights. But his grab is wonderful for initiating and protecting carries during team fights, his AoE silence is Bouse, and in late game his uppercut has a very short cooldown for a hard cc effect.
