Vijay Blackmon to join Hoosiers as walk-on guard

CHRIS GOFF | The Journal Gazette

Vijay Blackmon will join Indiana as a walk-on shooting guard, he confirmed to The Journal Gazette in a text message Monday.

Blackmon's older brother, James Blackmon Jr., just completed a three-year career with the Hoosiers. Vijay Blackmon played in 22 games as a freshman at Saint Francis, an NAIA program, and averaged 9.2 points before leaving the Cougars in January.

WPTA-TV first reported the news, which marks the first walk-on addition for new IU coach Archie Miller.
