Ronnie Blackmon has taken the first step in leaving Colorado by placing his name into the NCAA transfer database. Florida State and Oklahoma are potential landing spots for the cornerback, as are Toledo and UCF.
Perhaps most noteworthy is that Blackmon has retained the services noted “Attorney to the Transfer Stars” Tom Mars, meaning the defensive back will pursue a waiver that would grant him immediate eligibility. At this point, it’s not clear as to on what basis the waiver appeal will be filed.
If the appeal is successful and a waiver is granted, Blackmon would have two years of eligibility he could begin to use in 2019 regardless of which FBS program for which he ultimately opts.
Blackmon, a three-star prospect coming out of high school in 2016, led the Pac-12 in punt return yards this past season with 262. That number was also tied for eighth in the country, while his 8.7 yards per return was fourth in the conference and 23rd nationally.
