MARION, Ind. (21Alive) - Marion guard James Blackmon Jr. ended the speculation about his future Thursday night, recommitting to Indiana University.
Blackmon verbally committed to IU in September of 2010, but reopened his recruiting in August.
The senior used the next two months to explore other schools before ultimately choosing to stay with the Hoosiers.
Blackmon chose Indiana over Kentucky and Michigan. Sources told 21Alive Wednesday that Blackmon had narrowed down his decision to those three schools.
Blackmon also had interest from Michigan State and Kansas, according to ESPN.
Blackmon's father and head coach, James Blackmon Sr., was an All-American at Kentucky in the 1980s. The Blackmons left Bishop Luers for Marion, where James Sr. was once a standout, over the summer.
Blackmon made his highly-anticipated announcement live on ESPNU during halftime of the Louisiana-Monroe at Troy college football game.
