He just visited. This would be interesting indeed.
2014 Hoops recruit James Blackmon to visit
This one will be an official visit. He seems like a long shot, though. Isn't Kentucky the presumed front-runner?
Kentucky is targeting other guys at the position who might commit first
Every Kentucky is watching Booker tonight. Beilein and Bacari are there as well.
Every Kentucky coach that is
I would gladly take either one.
I WANT MOAR TOP RANKED BASKETBALL RECRUITS!!! I WANT THEM ALL!!
MOAR MOAR MOAR MOAR NEVER ENOUGH
I don't think it's really known. Beilein has been recruiting Booker for years and he's said it's a close relationship with the Michigan staff. I was feeling really good about him until he started taking visits around even after Michigan's National Championship game run. He's a smart kid taking his time to make the right choice, but I feel like UofM should have landed him by now. I can't imagine what else Beilein can show him that he doesn't already know.
Blackmon Jr. is different because he committed to IU so early teams pretty much stopped recruiting him. Now it appears wide open, but I haven't heard any kind of time table for his decision. The fact that this is his 2nd or 3rd visit in a month is a really good sign though.
He's silky smooth with the ball, and he's got that Indiana jump shot:
...and will lead to the explosion of Tom Crean's head whence we meet them next.
the internet seems to think that Blackmon being at the IU game last year is what set Tom Crean off in the first place!
Something abut wrecking his program, I'm sure.
he was here the last day of august according to 247 sports, so if he was really here last weekend and now coming back for his official visit that makes 3 visits in the span of a month. We may not be in the best position all things considered but it doesnt seem like he hates coming to michigan at all.
I see Corey Sanders committed to UCF
Everytime I see his name, I associate him with Justin Blackmon of Oklahoma St. fame.
Why, because they're both black, mon?
I miss the upvote system.
then quite possibly none.
And I'm okay with that!
The school he currently attends has put out some good talent historically (especially the past few years), including Anthony Spencer (NFL Cowboys), Rod and Jaylon Smith (OSU and ND, respectively), Deshaun Thomas (OSU) to name a few.
Not exactly a massive pipeline, but they seem to have a great D1 prospect every other year, or so. Wouldn't hurt getting that foot in the door.
