James Blackmon Jr. tweeted Wednesday night that his college decision is “coming soon.”
The Class of 2014 basketball recruit is scheduled to take his official visit to Kentucky on Oct. 18 for Big Blue Madness. He has already taken an unofficial visit to the campus. His father, James Blackmon, played for the Wildcats in the 1980s.
Michigan is the only school that Blackmon Jr. has officially visited so far. Wolverines Coach John Beilein returned the favor by visiting Blackmon on Wednesday.
Blackmon’s tweet was accompanied by a graphic that included the logos of Kentucky, Michigan, Michigan State, Kansas and Indiana. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard from Marion, Ind., was committed to the Hoosiers for nearly three years before backing off that pledge in August.
Kentucky offered Blackmon a scholarship the day after his decommitment from Indiana.
Several other schools have been linked to his recruitment, including Louisville, North Carolina and Florida. But none of those schools were referenced in his tweet Wednesday night.
ESPN ranks Blackmon as the No. 19 overall prospect in the Class of 2014.
