James Blackmon Jr. will visit Indiana this weekend, he Tweeted.
The Indiana visit follows a visit to Kentucky last weekend, where he was joined by Stanley Johnson, Trey Lyles and Kentucky pledges Tyler Ulis and Karl Towns Jr.
“A lot of people think just because I decommitted from [Indiana], I’m not looking at them,” he told SNY.tv recently. “But they’re still one of my top five and if it’s the right fit for me I’ll definitely go back because I love that place. I’m from Indiana so that’s always a plus.”
Blackmon Jr. decommitted from Indiana in August, but is still considering Indiana, along with Michigan, Michigan State, Kentucky and Kansas.
“I really don’t have a timetable in mind [for deciding] but it should be before the November signing period, but I’ll probably commit before then,” he told SNY.tv. “I really don’t have a date set up, I’ll probably know that in the next week or so.”
