    Crimson and Cream reacted to Class of '66 Old Fart in James Blackmon Jr - Beşiktaş J.K. (Turkey)   
    James Blackmon Jr. has signed a contract to play in Turkey for Beşiktaş J.K.  The 6'4" combo guard has had an impressive overseas career in just two years since leaving Indiana University. This past season, in 21 Lega Serie A games, he averaged 14.0 points per game and shot nearly 44% from three-point range.
    In three games so far this season, the team is 0-3 and will be counting on Blackmon Jr. (who flies to Istanbul on   Sunday) to be their top scorer.
    "I've put in a lot of work this summer," Blackmon told me. “I'm excited for the next step in the journey."
    In high school, the sharpshooter was a McDonald's All-American, and in college, he averaged over 16 points on 41.5% shooting from three-point range in 73 games for the Hoosiers.

    Here is a quote from Jerry Meyer of 247 answering a question regarding Aminu Mohammed and Trey Kaufman:
    What do you think the likelihood is that IU gets both Trey Kaufman and Aminu Mohammed?
    - Rob Lunder @rlunder18
    Too early and too little concrete info to give a definitive answer to this question. Indiana is very much in the mix with both prospects and perhaps the leader at the moment, but that is as much as I can give you at this moment.
    My take is that both prospects are still working through their options and do not have their minds made up. Yes, I like Indiana’s chances with both of them, but that is as much as I can say.

    Been awhile so I'll post an update on our '21 recruiting efforts.    Lots of names fall under the 'Never Offered' category but it's more of a catchall than anything else.  Never know for certain if there was any genuine IU interest or if it was a courtesy call or a goodwill gesture more than anything else but at some point, our name was referenced.  And as everyone I'm sure knows, Logan Duncomb is currently our only '21 commitment.

    3. Avery Brown 
    Recruitment: Offers from Indiana, Missouri, Penn State, Saint Louis, St. John’s.
    Why he could rise: There is a lot to like when it comes to a floor general like Brown. He’s got great size, is well put together and shows burst with his first step. He’s an alert passer, engaged defender and he can play as either a setup guy or a primary scorer. Guards with intelligence like he has aren’t always easy to find.

    I think that IU has the model that an excellent culture of in-state kids can absorb the occasional prep-school/handler five star into the mix and retain its high quality dynamic.

    I was already nervous about this recruitment with the speculation by several journalists that he could skip college and go straight to the G-League. The frequent deference to his guardian in this interview when asked about several key recruiting questions doesn't make me feel any better.

    OG’s Defense has been outstanding. 13 rebounds last night. Really defended well in addition. What a steal for Toronto to get him late in the 1st round. He’s gotten so much better over the last two years. Fun player to watch. Hit some Big Shots in the series as well. Love to see the ex Hoosiers thriving.
