The talk was that Noah Blackwell primarily departed from Long Beach State because he wanted to be positioned more at the point. So does the Bulldog roster make this a strong possibility now that he has selected Fresno State?
Deshon Taylor averaged 2.1 assists this season and will have one season of eligibility remaining when Blackwell can take to the court again. But nobody else on the current roster looks to have point guards skills which would earn them major minutes.
As to recruiting, two offers have been extended to high school points in the 2019 class and one, Logan Johnson, in the 2018 grouping. A 2017 point has also been offered but as yet remains undecided.
So the one element nobody knows about as yet is who Bulldog Coach Rodney Terry will bring in with his next recruiting class and if any will be points during Blackwell's redshirt season.
By the way, the 6-foot-2 Blackwell enjoyed a 53/33 assist-to-turnover ration this season while averaging 8.1 points and 2.5 rebounds a contest. He shot 42% overall, 38% on threes and shot 6-7 from the foul line. All this in 24.4 minutes per game.
