Blackmon will take late visit to IU
October 23, 2013 – Former Indiana basketball commit and 247Composite four-star guard James Blackmon Jr. took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that he will be visiting Indiana this weekend.
The visit comes a week after Blackmon visited Kentucky for its version of Midnight Madness, Big Blue Madness. Blackmon, who currently attends Marian (Ind.) High School, and his family had hinted at a final IU visit prior to his impending college decision.
Blackmon had tentatively scheduled his decision date as Oct. 22, but moved it back as he considered Indiana more. Blackmon had been committed to Indiana for more than three years before reopening his commitment in August. Since then, Kentucky and Michigan have jumped into the lead. Indiana has stayed in the conversation, as Blackmon said it would.
The 2014 prospect’s younger brother, Vijay Blackmon, said he will likely be joining his brother on the trip, but isn’t completely sure yet.
