Scouting Report on James Blackmon

by Eric Bossi - 09/24/2013
Arguably the top shooter in the entire class of 2014. Blackmon has a smooth jumper that features excellent mechanics and deep range. Underrated as a North/South athlete and a ball handler, he projects as a guy who could put up big numbers in college.
