Where is Justin Blackmon Now?

March 19, 2024

The College Football Hall of Fame added former Oklahoma State Cowboys great Justin Blackmon to their 2024 class on Monday. Blackmon, the first two-time unanimous All-American in school history, was one of the most dominant wide receivers in NCAA history during his time in Stillwater. He won the Biletnikoff Award both his sophomore and junior years and racked up 1,782 receiving yards in those seasons.

After a record-setting sophomore season, expectations were high for Blackmon heading into his junior year. The Cowboys opened the 2011 campaign with a loss to Louisiana Lafayette, but quarterback Brandon Weeden got the message to his star receiver: “Throwing a ball to Justin is like riding a bike.” Blackmon answered that call with eight catches for 144 yards in week one and was off and running.

As a junior, Blackmon exploded with 122 receptions for 1,522 yards and 18 touchdowns. The All-American caught 14 or more passes in seven games and had more than 200 yards in a game five times. He was named the 2010 Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year and made the Alamo Bowl and Fiesta Bowl teams.

The Jaguars selected Blackmon with the fifth overall pick of the 2012 NFL Draft, but he hasn’t played in an NFL game since 2013. The former All-American was suspended for the first four games of the 2013 season after a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy and hasn’t been reinstated yet.
