Blackshear announced Wednesday via his personal Instagram account
that he has withdrawn from the 2019 NBA Draft but still intends to move on from Virginia Tech and join another program as a graduate transfer.
Blackshear took the time to evaluate both other schools as well as professional options during the offseason and is still working toward determining his next stop after coach Buzz Williams left Virginia Tech and bolted for Texas A&M. He has one year of eligibility remaining and will be available to play in 2019-20. Blackshear should draw plenty of interest from top programs on the transfer market after averaging 14.9 points, 7.5 boards and 2.4 assists in 29.9 minutes per game for the Hokies as a junior.
