    Rhoads confirms Blankenship news

    Blankenship will head to Ohio University as a walk on.

    Quote from Paul Rhoads.

    “He did decide to leave our program. Beau is going to leave for an opportunity as a walk-on at Ohio University. We wish him all the best. He was in open communication with me the whole time about what he wanted to do. Beau wants to be a running back. For right now, he was fitting in with us as a special teams player primarily. We wish him all the best.”

    Good luck Beau! We are pretty set with playmakers at RB anyway.

    The Ohio U thing is getting odd.

    Re: Rhoads confirms Blankenship news

    time for BO to step in

    but in all reality... it sucks to lose him he might have fit in well in the near future.

    He obviously didn't see much PT going forward at ISU. Good luck to Beau in the future.

    Best of luck to him in the future--seems like he was a high character guy who gave his all. Hopefully he finds success at Ohio. Seems like a quality institution.

    Re: Rhoads confirms Blankenship news

    Will Beau have to sit out this year or will Rhoads do the right thing and release him so he can play right away?

    Why wouldn't he release him? He will have to sit out regardless - D1 to D1 school. Surprised he would walk away from a scholly for a walk on at Ohio. I could live with special teams duties for a full ride. Best of luck to him.

    Yeah, that seems REALLY odd. CPR didn't sound upset about the move, so I have a hard time believing that he didn't get a full release from ISU. Maybe he was set on Ohio for some reason. I think that a lot of schools would have a few scholarships open at this point. Kinda figured if Beau was leaving, it would be somewhere like Tulsa or North Texas. Good luck to him, though. Seemed like a good kid who just got buried on the depth chart. From the summer updates, he sounded like he was one of our strongest overall players (weightroom) pound for pound.

    To me its odd because there's a chance both of them could have had a shot at ISU in another position and left to go to Ohio. Heck, Philip might not even beat out Boo for the QB spot so I never got that.
    Best of luck to to Blankenship though, never heard a bad thing about him.

    Re: Rhoads confirms Blankenship news

    I think it shows what kind of person Beau is when you have a bunch of guys from the team posting how upset they are on twitter. Hopefully we dont have any bone heads around on here that think, "if he didnt want to be here, we dont want him." I dont think he "didnt" want to be here.
