Guard Vijay Blackmon, the younger brother of James Blackmon Jr., is joining the Indiana roster as a walk-on according to multiple reports published late Monday night.

Blackmon, who helped lead Marion to the Class 3A state championship in 2016, played part of last season for NAIA Saint Francis.

Blackmon averaged over nine points for Saint Francis before leaving the team in late January.

The 6-foot-2 guard was originally offered a scholarship by Tom Crean early in his high school career.

James Blackmon Jr. left Indiana after his junior season for the NBA draft.
