James Blackmon Jr. could be approaching a decision this week


Justin Albers covers Indiana basketball recruiting for and reported via Twitter that James Blackmon Jr. could be nearing a decision sometime this week. Blackmon Jr. has long been considered a favorite to land with Kentucky in the 2014 recruiting class, but Indiana has made a late push for the sharp shooting guard who was once a Hoosier commit.

Indiana had a scrimmage this weekend against USI (Southern Indiana). Blackmon Jr. did not attend the game according to Albers. Blackmon was in Bloomington this weekend though for a visit, but left in the afternoon. 


I’m going with the Cats on this one.

I once successfully requested "The Wobble" to be played 6 times at one wedding.

    Its over, he is a Cat, Lyles will follow soon. Poor ole Hose-ers.

    If Blackmon and Booker both commit to UK this week then I definitely see Lyles committing soon after as he said he will decide in the fall signing period. Hopefully that wouldn’t be the end of the 2014 class. I still have high hopes on Stanley Johnson and I actually do believe Myles Turner or Jahlil Oakfor commit to Kentucky.

    not looking good if youre an iu fan

    Side note, I have a few friends at IU that say someone paid Lyles to de-commit. I think they are just sour that Crean has kept missing out on elite in state talent like Blackmon, Lyles, Teague, Harris, Irvin, and Robinson III

    His dad was a great Wildcat and He will be as well. Can’t wait to see KENTUCKY across his chest.
    Come on down James The Big Blue Nation is wanting you bad!

    The best shooter in the 2014 class, he will look good in blue!

    I think it would be odd if he was at IU, and said that he was too busy to go watch IU play if he was going to attend IU. IU is not going to be good in the next couple years anyway.

    James Blackmon Sr. loved him, come on down Jr. you won’t regret it!!

    He just missed a shooting on IU campus if he left at noon.

    I really tried… I mean I really thought I had a chance with him. I wish I… I wish I.. Was more like John calipari.

    IU is falling apart. I think Crean is just weird and creeps out recruits. Weird hair cut, weird tweets, weird family mouth kisses, weird side line antics, weird ceremonies after losses, just weird.

    I remember watching Blackmon’s father play at UK. What a MAJOR disappointment he was, like Marvin Stone level disappointing. James Blackmon was unstoppable in high school and elite. He never played that way during his UK career. Hopefully Blackmon Jr. will play differently if he comes.
