It may not be the norm in modern recruiting, but Devon Blackmon plans to proceed in logical order. He's not naming a favorite - not until he starts staking official visits. And that process, it seems, will start this weekend in Salt Lake City.
"I'm taking a visit to Utah this week," Blackmon said. "I think it's a good program, but I'm going to go up there and check it out. I'll have a better idea after that."
Blackmon says he also intends to tour Fresno State and BYU, but has not set dates for those as of yet. A 6-foot-1 wide receiver at Riverside (Calif.) Community College, Blackmon says it wouldn't be wise to assume the three schools he intends to visit are his current frontrunners. Instead, there are other options in play.
"I'm still waiting on Washington and USC to figure out what's going on there," Blackmon said. "Depending on what happens there, I might visit."
The timetable for a commitment hops around. Blackmon says he may or may not be eligible to leave Riverside at semester. He should receive word on that fairly soon. From there, he'll set a goal.
"It depends on if I am a mid-year or not, so I'm not sure when I' going to be making my decision," he said. "I should know soon."
Blackmon, the No. 96 player in the Rivals Juco100, claims a total of 10 scholarship offers. He was committed to UCLA before switching his commitment to Oregon as a senior in high school in 2011.
