Friday September 5th, 2014

Five-star prospect Antonio Blakeney announced his commitment to the University of Louisville on Thursday.

Blakeney, a 6-foot-4 shooting guard from Oak Ridge High School in Orlando, Florida, visited the school this week and chose Louisville over Kentucky, LSU and Missouri.

Blakeney is ranked in the top 25 by four different recruiting services.

"You're getting a kid who can play both (guard) spots, and he puts the ball in the basket probably better than anybody else in the country," Oak Ridge coach Alex Jackson told the Courier Journal.

Blakeney will join small forward Deng Adel, guard Donovan Mitchell and power forward Raymond Spalding in Rick Pitino’s class of 2015.
