Oklahoma could be looking to add some more big play ability to their roster through the transfer portal. Ronnie Blackmon was playing for Colorado last season and is currently in the transfer portal.
Blackmon was a corner for the Buffaloes last year but he did his real damage as a kick/punt returner. He was eighth in the country in yards per punt return and lead the Pac-12.
Special teams is usually an afterthought in college football. Landing one of the best returners in the country would be a major boost for anyone but Oklahoma could walk out the winners.
Florida State is also in the running to land Blackmon but that shouldn’t be to difficult a decision. Blackmon said he is looking to switch to receiver for whichever team he ends up with.
Blackmon was a three-star recruit out of Atlanta’s Westlake High School, tagged with the designation of athlete. He intends to play wide receiver and return kicks and punts at his next school.
Last season, Blackmon led the Pac-12 with 262 punt return yards, eighth-most nationally, averaging 8.7 yards per return. He had a season-long 59-yard return against Arizona. Blackmon had 210 return yards on 11 kickoffs, an average of 19.1 yards.Quote from The Blade
