09:13 AM ET 11.24 | A source close to DuckTerritory has indicated that former Oregon wide receiver Devon Blackmon intends to transfer to the University of Washington. Blackmon, who announced his intent to transfer from Oregon on November 19, appeared in two games for the Ducks this season after redshirting in 2011 and would be eligible to play in 2014 after sitting out one season, per NCAA rules regarding FBS athletes who transfer to other FBS programs.

Man he messed up. I heard Wazzou had some WR openings. Probably a few more once Leach gets that shed built.

Leach is at Washington STATE.

I know. He should have gone to Wazzou instead of the Huskies because of the stud WR that quit.

Isn't Washington State referred to as Wazzou?

He's the second WR to leave in a few months. It seems if WR can't block for CK that WR won't see the field during a game.

He may have a hard time finding playing time anywhere then. I don't ever recall a coach saying "I'm not going to require my WRs to block." I could be wrong though.

True, but IMO it IS more important in some offensive schemes. Oregon had high hopes for these two players though, I just can't think of any other reason they haven't played in any games except the spring games.

Good point. From what I've observed from most "wide open" offenses, they use a whole herd of WRs and rotate the heck out of them.
