Decision set for Blackmon

Four-star shooting guard James Blackmon is now ready to make up his mind.

One of the top remaining players in the country now knows when he will decide. Four-star shooting guard James Blackmon has set his announcement date for Thursday, and he intends to announce on ESPNU.

The Marion (Ind) product has seen his stock go up on the count of an excellent summer, and since de-committing from Indiana in August, he has picked up numerous offers. Now after making his official visits, Blackmon is ready to decide.

Officially Blackmon is still considering Michigan, Michigan State, Indiana, Kansas, and Kentucky, however the Jayhawks never got a visit and the Spartans appear to be a complete longshot.

Blackmon is one of the elite shooters in the class of 2014, and was the leading scorer on the high powered Spiece Indy Heat AAU team. Now the 6-foot-2 guard will be able to focus on making a run at Mr. Basketball during his senior season.

Most recently Blackmon made an unofficial trip to Indiana which was his final visit. It followed official visits to Kentucky and Michigan earlier in the process.
