Our moniker: The Silencer

Details: 6-9, Sr.


College choice: Virginia Tech (signed).

Best attribute: Softspoken and reserved by nature, Blackshear is a skilled, versatile workhorse on the floor. He rebounds, blocks shots, passes and scores.

Stats say: Averaged 12.0 points and 7.6 rebounds per game as a junior.

Staudt says: "Kerry is the new-age stretch-four man. He has some versatile offensive skills that a lot of bigs don't have. He can step out and make shots."

Kerry says: "At times, I am kind of calm and laid-back. But I'm also the kind of guy who gets fired up for big games. As a senior, I want to go out as a winner, win states and get bigger and stronger and be more mentally prepared for college."
