In high school, Blackwell plays quarterback, but projects anywhere from running back, to wide receiver, to safety, to linebacker or even still back at quarterback at the next level.
This type of versatility, combined with his unsual combination of size and speed (6-1.5, 208 pounds, running a 4.66 at the Miami Scout.com combine) has brought this sleeper recruit into the minds of many.
Blackwell said he's currently hearing from Iowa the most, who is recruiting him as a quarterback. He's also hearing a good bit from Alabama, LSU, and Miami.
He has no plans to make an early decision, likely waiting to take some visits after his senior season to check out some campuses. The only visit has scheduled is a December visit to Iowa
