Blackmon is electric with the ball in his hands, seeing time on offense as a slot receiver and on special teams as a kick returner and as a punt returner.
Standing at 5’10, 165 pounds, Blackmon already has solid size for the position, with time to still add to his frame over the next two seasons for the Wolves.
In the weight-room, Blackmon has a max squat of over twice his weight, at 405 pounds, with a bench press of 265, and a power clean of 235 pounds.
In his sophomore campaign, Blackmon was able to amass over 330 yards on the season, while adding 2 touchdowns on the year, on a team that seemed to struggle on both sides of the ball.
“We are in spring football right now, but I feel we are on the right path for next season,” Blackmon said. “Everyone is doing their job on the field, and I believe that if we continue to do that, great things will happen for us this year. This year will be different!”
Blackmon obviously has the abilities to play the game, but he also knows that he has to do things that will help him to standout from other players.
“I feel like I am a leader on the team,” Blackmon said. “I am always the first one in the weight-room, and I make sure to take care of my grades first. I have very smooth routes, and I can move very well. I have a ton of confidence in myself, and have a big heart.”
While all of those things are great, Blackmon shines the most in the classroom, where he currently boasts a 3.5 GPA, which is more than enough to have many colleges looking to him for his services. Blackmon is a player to watch in the ’23 class!
