Blackmon looking around

Wide receiver Chance Blackmon has been committed to Colorado since late April. This weekend, the Tatum, Texas prospect has decided to open his recruiting process back up.
The 6-foot-3, 185-pounder said he spoke with Colorado coach Eric Kiesau within the last few days and let him know that while he remains committed, he wants to look at some other options as he goes through the recruiting process.
"Right now, it's like a soft commitment," Blackmon said. "I still have Colorado on my mind. I've been talking with my parents and stuff. Things have been really crazy lately. It's kind of far away so I told them that. I just let them know that I needed some time to see my options and see what's best for me."

Blackmon said that aside from Colorado, he's also considering Missouri, Oklahoma State, Tennessee, and Texas AM. Right behind the Buffaloes is Tennessee and Oklahoma State.
Though the Volunteers are also far from his home state, Blackmon said that he has two former teammates, Lennon Creer and Darnius Moore have told him a lot about the school.
"They've been just telling me how it is and how they like it," Blackmon said. "Tennessee didn't offer because I was committed already. Really it's Tennessee up there with me and Oklahoma State."
While Texas A&M and Tennessee have yet to offer, Blackmon says that he's planning on waiting to see what happens over the next few months before making any final decision. He has plans to take in a UTEP camp and others as the summer goes on.
Blackmon had 33 receptions for 850 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior.
