U of L coach Rick Pitino has been to see him three times since the summer and assistant coach Mike Balado has also watched Blakeney.
Now, the 6-foot-4 Blakeney is expected to make his second visit to U of L on Thursday night. He'll attend the U of L vs. Cincinnati game at the KFC Yum! Center.
"Yeah real hard," Blakeney told Scout.com in response to a question on how hard U of L is recruiting him. "They've been down here to see me a lot."
Blakeney is ranked as the No. 68 prospect in the '15 class nationally and is expected to move up in the rankings. He has over 20 offers, including U of L, Florida, Florida State, Kansas, Oklahoma State and more.
