MARION, Ind. (21Alive) - Marion High School boys basketball guard James Blackmon Jr. will announce a final college decision Thursday.

Sources tell 21Alive that Blackmon has narrowed it down to Indiana, Kentucky and Michigan, in no particular order.

Blackmon Jr. decommitted from the IU in August after verbally committing to the Hoosiers his freshman year.

During the summer, Blackmon also switched from Bishop Luers High School to Marion, where his father also coaches.

Blackmon's decision is expected to come in a televised announcement Thursday night on ESPNU.
