Here’s an interesting tidbit to hold you over til dinner: 2014 shooting guard James Blackmon Jr. has decommitted from Indiana.
Before you write him off as just another creeped out Crean commit, you should know that Blackmon is one of the top shooting guards in the class, AND he’s the son of former UK player James Blackmon, Sr. He’s a confident shooter with a smooth stroke and tons of upside, and is considered the 25th best player in the 2014 class by ESPN. Blackmon Jr. committed to Indiana back in September 2010, and understandably, may be having some second thoughts. (Either that, or he’s really scared Crean’s going to kiss him at some point next fall.)
He hasn’t been contacted by Kentucky or Louisville…yet. Stay tuned.
