James Blackmon is one of the 2014 recruits we’ve heard is likely to pick the Cats, and according to MGoBlog.com, he’s set an announcement date. Blackmon has tentatively scheduled a press conference for October 22nd, the Tuesday after he visits Kentucky for Big Blue Madness.
Rivals considered the 6’3″ 170 lbs. shooting guard the 23rd best player in the 2014 class. He’s also considering Michigan, Indiana, Louisville, and Michigan State. He told Rivals’ Eric Bossi that he likes Kentucky because it’s on a different level than most programs:
“I like Kentucky because it’s really one of the biggest stages in college basketball. Like I said, my dad played there, so that’s a feeling. I just know about Rupp Arena and the fans are crazy there, so I like that.”
Come on down and make your father proud, James.
