The redshirt freshman played for Oregon in two of the first three games during this season’s football program. He has not played enough to gain any stats.
Blackmon is 6’ 1” tall and weighs in at 186 pounds. As a high school senior, he has caught 31 passes for 379 yards with five touchdowns under his belt. He carried the ball 35 times for 370 yards, plus six more scores during his Summit High School senior year.
Head Coach Chip Kelly has announced that Blackmon is hoping to finish the fall academic term, although he has excused Blackmon from any football obligations to the University.
Oregon linebacker Anthony Wallace has announced his plans to transfer from the Oregon football program as well.
Wallace came from Dallas Texas, where as a sophomore he played 15 games in the first two years there. Wallace has one tackle for a loss out of his 13 total tackles. Anthony has been credited with one stop in the Rose Bowl win over Wisconsin during last year’s season. He also holds three takedown bests as a freshman during the USC game of last season and this year during the Colorado vs. Oregon game.
Head Coach Kelly wished both players the best in their future, wherever they decide to play football and go to college. Kelly offered any assistance that may be needed to make the transfers happen for the two players.
