James Blackmon Jr., the No. 19 player in the ESPN 100, said it was a close call on his final decision, but in the end he wanted to stay home. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard just needed to look elsewhere first before he could confirm his final decision as a Hoosier.
After visiting Kentucky, Michigan and Michigan State, and with a final unofficial visit to Indiana, he chose the Hoosiers. This is a major coup for the Indiana program. A ton of credit goes out to Tom Crean and his staff for having patience with the process.
How will Blackmon fit with the Hoosiers?
