Four Star Gurads withdraw commitments, re-open recruiting process

For the second time in a few weeks a high end four-star talent in the class of 2014 has opened up his recruitment.

Four-star James Blackmon opened up his recruitment on Thursday.
After No. 31 Quentin Snider backed off of his pledge to Louisville a week and a half ago, No. 33 James Blackmon opened his recruitment up on Thursday.

A verbal commitment to Indiana since before he had even played a high school game, the 6-foot-3 shooting guard told Jeff Rabjohns of that he wanted a chance to look around.

"I just thought about it a couple days ago," Blackmon told "Since I've been committed for so long, since before my freshman basketball season, I've never seen anything else. I just want to put it up against something else and see where that takes me."

Perhaps the premier jump shooter in the class of 2014, Blackmon will certainly be a hot commodity. He hasn't listed any programs of interest yet but he's sure to be the recipient of plenty of interest over the next few days as school rush in to see if they have a chance.

Like Snider did with Louisville at the time of his decommitment, Blackmon maintains that he still loves Indiana and that they are still his favorite program. However, it isn't often that a player backs away from a long standing commitment and then ends up back at his original school.

Stay tuned for more on Blackmon as he begins to list new interest and set up visits. His plan is still to sign in the Fall and his recruitment will have to move along quickly in order for that to happen.
