Five-star Antonio Blakeney resets LSU visit

Antonio Blakeney, one of the nation's top uncommitted players, will visit LSU in early November during the football team's biggest home game of the season.

TSD has learned five-star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney (Oak Ridge HS/Orlando) will take an official visit to LSU on the weekend of November 7-9, the same weekend the football team hosts Alabama.

Blakeney, who committed to Louisville on Sept. 4 only to reopen his recruitment 11 days later, originally planned to take in LSU's campus last weekend, September 19-21. Now he'll be in Baton Rouge at the same time as his Each 1 Teach 1 AAU teammate Ben Simmons, an LSU commitment in the Class of 2015 and the No. 2 player in the country.

The timing is also good for the Tigers considering the early signing period begins on November 12, several days after Blakeney's visit.

Blakeney recently received in-home visits from LSU, Missouri, USC and Kentucky. Oregon is also said to be in the final mix of schools he's considering.
