“My recruitment process is cool; I still plan to wait as late as possible before I decide,” he wrote. “I just want to see who’s all definitely coming and who’s staying in school and who’s leaving. I just feel like people can be promised lots of things and commit early thinking the player that’s there is getting drafted but it’s all about how guys play during the season. It’s not about what people say. I think it’s just smarter to wait and get all of the information and then decide what’s best for me.”

Can't argue with that. Very smart strategy when you're a sought after recruit.

Doesn't bode well for us. He would start at IU next year regardless of whether JBJ is here or not and Yogi is gone no matter what

I don't think it bodes either way for us. Just as important as who you replace is who you play with. Just thinking about the last two years, we haven't fielded a complete team. If Vonleh or even JBJ knew who they would end up playing with, they may not have come. And they might not have been wrong to not come.

Who was on the team that left that Vonleh and or Blackmon had no knowledge was going to happen.

what?

Early departures. Vonleh may have believed he would play with Zeller or Oladipo. Or JBJ believed he would have Vonleh. If JBJ knew we would have no post player and therefore no hopes of a significant tourney run, he may have chosen a team with a better outlook. Especially if he wanted to be one and done.

as much as I like Blackmon, and I do, UK was his number 1 choice for him and Dad. Runner up worked for us and Mom.

in my opinion I don't think vonleh would of came to iu if zeller was here. I remember vonleh saying in articles after he committed that the coaching staffs pitch to him was to step into costs shoes
