The college football transfer portal continues to turn as we enter the summer. Colorado's Ronnie Blackmon is among the major conference players still seeking out a new program.

Blackmon played cornerback for the Buffaloes. However, his biggest impact was on special teams.

He was eighth in the country, and topped the Pac-12 in yards per punt return, and was also a dangerous kick returner. Interestingly, he's seeking a bigger role with the ball in his hands at his next stop.

Per The Blade in Toledo, Blackmon intends to play wide receiver, and not corner, wherever he goes, while reprising his role on special teams.

Florida State and Oklahoma are the two biggest programs that Ronnie Blackmon is considering as a transfer.

He's also looking into Group of Five programs UCF and Toledo. It is unclear how much the role he'll play at his next school will impact his eventual decision.

Colorado cornerback Ronnie Blackmon has entered the NCAA transfer portal, sources told The Blade. The junior will be represented by transfer sage Tom Mars and expects to be eligible for the 2019 season.

Blackmon is considering Toledo, Oklahoma, Florida State, and Central Florida. He’s expected to visit UT in the coming weeks.

Mars, who is representing Blackmon, has been pretty successful at helping players land immediate eligibility. He represented Justin Fields, which helped him land a ton of business from other players as the transfer portal has exploded.
