WVU Football Recruiting

WVU Extends Offer to 2023 JUCO OL Keyshawn Blackstock



Other positions might be more flashy, but a college football program is often built through the offensive line. West Virginia knows that all too well, and is now focusing on retooling a line that will lose key veterans after this season. As part of that plan, WVU is looking to get into the mix for a junior college player with offers from several prominent Power 5 programs.

Keyshawn Blackstock, who is playing at Coffeville Community College in Kansas announced on Twitter that he can add WVU to the mix of official offers on the table when he decides which school he will take his talents to next. Blackstock is a 2021 Newton High School graduate in Covington, Georgia. He’s listed as 6’5 and 315 pounds, per 247 Sports.

Blackstock posted a tweet about the WVU offer with an image of the WV logo and another of him on the field at Milan Puskar Stadium with keys to a car, possibly symbolic of being handed the kets to the future of the WVU offensive line.

Just in the past few days, Blackstock has also received offers from Coastal Carolina, North Carolina State, Nebraska, Florida, Tennessee, Oregon and UAB. Before that, Memphis and Michigan State extended offers to Blackstock.

Despite tons of tough competition, WVU has put themselves in the running now for one of the most coveted junior college offensive lineman in the country.
