BLACKMON TO MAKE INDIANA VISIT
Marion guard James Blackmon is scheduled to visit Indiana this weekend when the Hoosiers open exhibition play against Southern Indiana. Blackmon, who now plays at Marion, is expected to make his final college decision very soon. Blackmon has made official visits to Kentucky (where his father played) and Michigan.
Blackmon re-opened his recruiting process back on August 8th after originally committing to the Hoosiers in 2010. As of today, Blackmon has Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, and Michigan State as his final choices. Kansas coach Bill Self had Blackmon for an in-home visit, but he hasn’t visited the campus.
It has been reported that coach Tom Crean has been to Marion several times to visit Blackmon during open gyms and also visited with Blackmon’s family.
Huntington Prep and former Evansville Bosse player JaQuan Lyle may also be at IU this weekend for a visit. Lyle is considering UCONN, IU, Kansas State, Memphis and Oregon.
Blackmon transfered to Marion from Fort Wayne Luers after his father was hired as the new coach of the Giants.
