It’s going to be a change for Tucker Blackwell. But don’t tell him that change is going to do anything to hinder his Bloomington South high school team.

The Panthers team lost eight seniors from their sectional winning team, and now Blackwell is prepping to go from a great player on the team to its leader and star. None of those have limited his expectations for the season.

“People expect us to just come out and kind of be mediocre because we’re really small,” Blackwell said. “We lost eight seniors, so people think we’re having a rebuilding year, but I’m just really excited to get out there and show people what we got.”

Mediocre isn’t in Blackwell’s genes and beliefs. The 6-foot-2 shooting guard is No. 32 in the Prep Hoops Indiana Top 180 and has shown a propensity to be one of the better shooters in the class.

This has put him squarely in the sights of some Div. I coaches. He holds an offer from IUPUI and talked with Eastern Kentucky and Evansville during the summer. He also recently started talking with Vermont.

He hasn’t scheduled any visits yet, but he wants to start taking them in October.
