James Blackmon Jr. closer to decision after Kentucky visit

rn_u_jamesblackmon_ms_200[1]James Blackmon Jr. updated his recruitment with ESPN’s Reggie Rankin after his Kentucky official visit.

“That was the main thing I took away from the visit is when Coach Calipari talked to me about being a shooting guard and a point guard,” he said. “That is something I liked a lot. It showed me how I would fit.”

In addition to his visit to Kentucky, Blackmon Jr. has also taken an official visit to Michigan and unofficial visits to Michigan State, Kansas and Indiana, and he said there’s a possibility of visiting Indiana officially or unofficially again before making a decision.

Blackmon Jr. has also put a lot of thought into what he is looking for in a coach.
“I want to feel comfortable with the coach,” he said. “I want him to do right by me, help me develop, help me get better.”

Blackmon Jr. is beginning to move into the decision-making stage of his recruitment and he knows who he will lean on for support.

“My mom and dad along with my brothers (16-year-old Vijay and 11-year-old Jalen) is who I will talk to and will help me with my decision,” he said.
