Former Missouri wide receiver DeSean Blair will continue his college football career at the Division II level.

Blair announced Friday on Twitter that he was transferring to Valdosta State.

“I’ve decided to continue my education and football at Valdosta state university #BlazerNation #Blaze17,” Blair wrote.

Blair, a redshirt sophomore last season, left the Missouri football team in January. He will be eligible to play immediately at Valdosta State.

After redshirting during his first season in 2014, Blair played sparingly in each of the last two for the Tigers. He finished his Missouri career with two catches for 25 yards, both of which came during the 2015 season. He made just one game appearance in 2016.

A former three-star recruit from Jacksonville, Florida, Blair had 15 total offers in the 2014 recruiting cycle. Along with Missouri, his offers list included Louisville, Nebraska, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Vanderbilt and West Virginia.

Blair is one of several Missouri players who have left the team this offseason.

Valdosta State is located in Valdosta, Georgia, which is near the Georgia-Florida border. Its campus is located around 125 miles away from Blair’s hometown of Jacksonville.
