"I always try to play hard. Last year was my first year to play linebacker, the years before that I was always a defensive end. I feel I did pretty good," Blackson explained.
Blackson has yet to pick up his first scholarship offer, but he has caught the eye of many solid football programs.
"I just took an unofficial visit to U of L. I toured the facilities. I saw the stadium and the weight room. After that, they had a scrimmage. It was nice," Blackson said.
As a junior, Blackson compiled 73 tackles and seven sacks. Blackson will participate in the Scout.Com All-American Combine at Rutgers University on Sunday.
