Zack Blaylock, who spent four years at Kentucky, is transferring closer to home and will finish his college football career as a graduate transfer at Kennesaw State, according to John Bednarowski of The Marietta Daily Journal.
The son of former Atlanta Hawks guard Mookie Blaylock, he is a native of Marietta, Ga. and will finish his collegiate career about 13 miles from where he was a first-team all-state player at Walton High School.
Blaylock’s was stuck in neutral during the majority of his time with the Wildcats as he struggled with several injuries. He missed the 2013 season and part of 2014 because of a knee injury and sat out all of the 2015 season with a back injury. With a clean bill of health, Blaylock is ready to be a contributor in the FCS.
“I’m fully recovered now,” Blaylock told Bednarowski. “This is going to be my last go-around, and I’m ready to jump into it.”
Blaylock plans to apply for a medical redshirt for his 2015 season and if it is granted, he’ll join Kennesaw State with two years of eligibility.
