Whoa, there! Ready for some breaking news? According to ESPN’s Reggie Rankin, 2015 five-star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney will announce his decision Friday at 4:30 p.m. on ESPNU, and he’s down to Kentucky, LSU, and Missouri. If you’ll ever so fondly remember, Blakeney was committed to Louisville for 11 days in September before wisely reopening his recruitment. He’s considered the 3rd best shooting guard and the 17th best overall player in the 2015 class.
Blakeney visited UK back on October 31, and a week later, visited LSU. Right now, the Tigers are considered the favorite in his 247 Crystal Ball, leading UK 55% to 31%. His friend and former AAU teammate Ben Simmons is already committed to LSU. In the past, Blakeney has said he wanted to wait until the spring to announce in order to see who stays and who goes to the pros for each of the schools he’s considering. Hmmmm…not looking good, but never count out Cal.
