And,as it turns out, he’ll remain in the same conference and the same division as well.
According to 247Sports.com website DuckTerritory.com, the wide receiver intends to transfer to Washington. The Huskies have yet to confirm Blackmon’s intentions.
If the move were to come to fruition, Blackmon, who informed the OU coaching staff Monday of his decision to leave the program, would be forced to sit out the 2013 season to satisfy NCAA transfer rules
After redshirting as a true freshman last season, Blackmon had played in two games in 2012. he did not have a catch in that pair of games.
Blackmon was a four-star member of the Ducks’ 2011 recruiting class, rated as the No. 5 receiver in the country by Rivals.com.
