Played in 4 games. 4 solo tackles, 2 assisted. He did not record any other stats.

I think he is just so far behind developmentally right now.
This spring and summer is key for him I think, above anyone else on the team.

I'm sure he was standing close to CWM at the end of the bowl game when Coach got the Gatorade Bath.

Maybe the above poster is correct and he'll find his true potential next year and his senior year. He could still surprise us all.

Someone just asked Josh Kendall about Blackshear and he said we are basically loading up at his position. He seemed to be implying that Blackshear likely won't ever pan out.

Josh Kendall, not a good source for information like that.

-- South Carolina will lose Dante Sawyer and the 452 snaps he played. Sawyer played predominately as a backup behind Keir Thomas, who is actually listed as an interior defender by PFF. One of the candidates to take Sawyer’s snaps is Blackshear, who played 46 snaps in a reserve role in 2017. Another candidate to take some of those snaps is Sterling, a rising sophomore. He played predominately in pass rush situations.

I suspect this might be his breakout year this year. With him being able to lift a full year he could be a beast this year.

So am I and if you look at it with your glass half full, he had 4 solo tackes and two assists with only 46 snaps. 1 tackle for every 8 snaps or so. That ain't too shabby.

Remember seeing him play in HS and noticed how much his body-type reminded me of Clowney. Clowney was his idol and he changed his number to #7 to honor him. He was very athletic but his lack of coaching development at the time left him raw. The following year he was coming into his own and then got hurt. That stunted any development he could've had and after he came here he was once again hit by tragedy.

Hopefully, he could get right and live up to his (initial) 5 Star rating.

He has 2 more years to make an impact. I do think the staff is going to turn him loose this year. He spent a year getting his body back together. He spent last year getting coached up. This year should be go time and we need him.

He showed flashes. I remember him in the backfield in the no game, he had the qb wrapped but the qb escaped.

Exactly. If you remember it took a while for Melvin Ingram to come into his own. I remember when some where saying he was a bust. Just takes some longer than others for whatever reason and I think Blackshear breaks out this year.

Dude, you'd have told me before the season last year that our defensive line would've made as much improvement as it did, I would've laughed. Players who'd underperformed all seemed to have the light come on, and that, to me, is a testament to coaching.

Take someone like Blackshear with so much promise and give that same staff another year...I wouldn't be surprised if he's all SEC (nor would I be surprised to not hear his name, but nevermind that).

Put it this way. If Shameik wasn't going to pan out then he would've been told to look elsewhere so we can make room for a high school prospect. The coaches still believe that he is going to be a contributor and that speaks volumes IMO.

Absolutely, and IIRC Blackshear was one of the first players from the Spurrier staff that CWM spoke to personally when he was hired as HC. CWM has faith in Blackshear from what I can tell. He may be a project player for Coach.
