A virtual unknown throughout most of the process, Blakeney popped up on the Duke radar after an impressive Shrine Bowl combine last year here he measured out at a true 6-foot-5 and 194 pounds while being clocked running a 4.51 forty. To prove his athleticism further, Blakeney recorded a 33.6 inch vertical jump. Coupled with his size, he's one of those receivers that gives quarterbacks the option of serving up jump balls in the endzone.
Currently rostered as a receiver, safety, and even linebacker for Monroe High, Blakeney is also a track star who has won a pair of 2A championships in the triple jump with a recorded leap of 48 feet, 4.5 inches. In addition he's a basketball standout for the Redhawks, averaging just over 17 points per game.
So far this season Blakeney is averaging just over three catches for 65 yards per game for the 3-0 Redhawks. Defensively he's totaled nine tackles and two assisted stops.
He is expected to attend Duke's next home game against North Carolina Central.
