2015 5-star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney cut his list to seven schools Monday. Making the cut were the Kentucky Wildcats and Louisville Cardinals, as well as Florida State, Oregon, USC, Missouri and LSU.
My final 7 : FSU, Louisville , Mizzou, Kentucky , Oregon , LSU and USC . No order . Thanks to all the other schools who recruited me
The 6-foot-4 Blackeney earned a scholarship offer from UK earlier this month.Those who were cut from his list include the Florida Gators, Kansas Jayhawks and North Carolina Tar Heels.
Louisville has long considered Blakeney a top priority, as he spent quite a bit of time playing in front of head coach Rick Pitino this July and has already had an unofficial visit to the campus. He’d be a nice fit in Louisville’s back court, but UK’s recent interest has put a dent in those plans.
“They don’t offer everybody,” Blakeney said of UK’s offer. “They’ve only offered a couple other people. I don’t really think about it at all, [but] Kentucky only recruits pros, so if they offer me, it means they think I’m a pro.”
As of now UK and U of L are the top two schools on 247Sports Crystal Ball.
