Remote chance of landing him, but he's listed as having an MSU offer and there might as well be a thread for him.

Would love to get him for the sole purpose of pissing Crean off.
James Blackmon will visit Michigan State unofficially on Saturday.
Would like to get either him or Booker. Both are pure shooters and would probably play great with Ulis.
I didn't realize that his father played for Kentucky and he's a legacy there.
Well, if there's any plus side, it's that a commitment to UK from one could knock them out of the race for the other.
I really hope he makes the trip up to MSU.
He can pave his own path at MSU. Not sure Cal respects tradition.
He would be a great get, stick it to Rat face at IU. We have gotten some good players out of that area. Maybe Byrd can help bring him in.
Based on tweets, it sounds like he's visiting IU today and MSU tomorrow.
Read this somewhere else, but Blackmon may not be such a long shot for MSU. His dad did play for Kentucky but did not enjoy his time there, thought he was not utilized in the best way possible. Obviously that doesn't have anything to do with Cal, but it can't hurt. Whats more important is that Blackmon Sr. (dad) and Fife have a good relationship from Fife's days coaching IPFW.
As previously mentioned, Blackmon and Charles Matthews ('15 kid, top-15 ranked, plays with Ulis AAU Meanstreets) are on campus today at MSU.
Can we get some confirmation from the staff on whether he's visiting today or tomorrow?
According to the IU article from an hour ago, he's visiting MSU tomorrow with both of his parents and then he's going to visit UK on the 29th and Louisville on the 30th. No timetable for a decision, though.
James Blackmon Jr. @JBlackmon2 1m
Had a nice time visiting MSU today
Anyone. Anyplace. Anytime.
He's a lock.
He is going to Kentucky! Rah!
Haters gonna hate!
Read on another board that he was spotted (during his vist) with Harris, Costello, Denzel and Day-Day. Pretty good group to escorted around with (Harris - future lottery pick, Day Day - current NBA player).
Good info, thanks.
Does he have a KY offer?
Whether he does or not I don't think he's a priority.
Kids decommit because they want to be shown love by other coaches.
Now Calipari's priority is locking up a point guard and Blackmon was visiting IU who has basically moved on.
He's probably going to decide in November: http://zagsblog.com/articles/with-iu-and-msu-down-uk-up-next-for-blackmon/
Every time I see his picture I see Larry Johnson.
@JeffRabjohns: 2014 5-star G James Blackmon of Marion (IN) had a visit with Tom Izzo Wednesday, Tom Crean Thursday, Roy Williams tonight.
Could be in good shape for him if Booker follows Ulis to Kentucky
