Notebook: James Blackmon Jr. to visit IU this weekend

  • Jordan Littman 10/23/2013 9:44 pm  

Former 2014 Indiana commit James Blackmon Jr. said he would take a final visit to Bloomington before making his second college decision. Wednesday evening, he made it clear he was following through with his promise. Blackmon announced via his Twitter account that he will visit IU this weekend, only a week after his official visit to Kentucky. "IU visit this weekend #IUBB," he said. The 6-foot-3 combo guard from Marion High School has also taken an official visit to Michigan (Sept. 27) and is considering Michigan State and Kansas, as well. The 247Composite rates him as the No. 31 prospect and No. 12 shooting guard in the 2014 class.

Recruiting notebook: IU staff visits Lyle, Hoetzel

  • Alex Bozich 10/23/2013 10:28 am  

The Indiana coaching staff was on the road Tuesday, making stops at Huntington Prep in West Virginia and at Wilbraham and Monson Academy in Massachusetts. At Huntington Prep, the staff stopped in to see 2014 guard JaQuan Lyle, the former Evansville Bosse guard who will finish his high school career against an aggressive national schedule. Huntington Prep is also home to other top prospects like Miles Bridges (2016), Thomas Bryant (2015) and Montaque Gill-Caesar (2015). Lyle, the No. 22 prospect nationally in the 247Composite, told Inside the Hall recently that Indiana is a school he's considering in the aftermath of his decision to de-commit from Louisville. He's taken unofficial visits to Connecticut and Memphis this fall, but won't be able to take any official visits until taking the SAT next month. On his Twitter account, Lyle posted the following late Tuesday afternoon: "Shoutout to Coach Crean for coming in after school today."

He's transferred from Evansville Bosse to Huntington Prep. He's made a verbal commitment, only to rescind it months later. He's drawn love and scorn from fans on social media.
