IU's roster numbers crunch appears to have taken care of itself. Junior guard James Blackmon Jr. will hire an agent and remain in the NBA draft, according to a report from FanRag Sports' Jon Rothstein. Blackmon, who participated in graduation this weekend, is the third Hoosiers player to sign with an agent this offseason, joining OG Anunoby and Thomas Bryant in June's draft. Robert Johnson also declared for the draft, but has yet to hire an agent and can return to school if he withdraws his name by May 24. After Archie Miller got the three-man 2017 recruiting class to reaffirm to the Hoosiers, IU's roster was over-signed by three. Now, with Bryant, Anunoby and Blackmon all going pro, that problem has sorted itself out. Much like Miller predicted.
