Rutgers RB Raheem Blackshear reportedly enters transfer portal after redshirting for 2019
Raheem Blackshear’s decision to sit out the rest of the 2019 season and retain a year of eligibility has become a bit clearer.
Blackshear, a junior, appeared in four games for Rutgers early on this season. He then decided to sit out the rest of the games and retain a year of eligibility, a byproduct of the new redshirt rule. Blackshear had 398 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in 2019.
On Wednesday, ESPN’s Adam Rittenberg reported that Blackshear has now hit the transfer portal. Considering the ongoing changes at head coach and uncertain future of the program, it would not be too surprising to see Blackshear transfer out of Rutgers.
#Rutgers running back Raheem Blackshear, who opened the season as the starter and in October elected to redshirt and preserve a season of eligibility has entered the transfer portal. He began the season as a team captain and earned honorable mention All-Big Ten honors in 2018.
