Blackmon Slows Down Things

Fontana (Calif.) Summit four-star receiver Devon Blackmon (6-1, 180), is getting ready to focus on his senior season, after a busy spring with track, and summer with Gridiron Kings.

The versatile Blackmon is in no rush to make a decision on his college future.

"I don't have any favorite school right now, everyone is pretty equal," said Blackmon. "I want to take some official visits before deciding."

Blackmon has five Pac-10 schools amongst his leaderboard and two SEC powerhouses in the mix for his services, but only five will get trips.

"My top schools right now are Alabama, Oregon, Cal, UCLA, USC, Florida and Washington," said Blackmon.

With unofficial visits to USC and UCLA already having been taken, Blackmon said he's uncertain if he'll take official visits to either of them, or if he'll visit the other five, non-Los Angeles schools and take unofficial trips to USC and UCLA down the line.

Blackmon said that while he's enjoyed his recruitment, he doesn't want that to become the focus of the next few months.

"I'm focused on my team and my senior year and winning a CIF championship this year," said Blackmon.

Academically, Blackmon has a 2.9 GPA and scored a 1300 on the SAT.

Blackmon scored 11 touchdowns this past season for Summit, five as a receiver, six on the ground, when he played primarily quarterback for Kaiser.
