5-Star Antonio Blakeney commits to Louisville

Louisville picked up a commitment from five star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney Thursday night. The 6-foot-4 guard from Oak Ridge High School in Orlando, Fla., announced his decision on Twitter, two days after returning from an official visit to the school.

Blakeney picked the Cardinals from a final list of Florida State, Kentucky, LSU, Missouri, Oregon and Southern California. Blakeney will join a class that features Deng Adel, Donovan Mitchell, and Raymond Spalding.

4-Star Prospect headed to Rugters

Rutgers Head Coach Eddie Jordan landed a major prosect with the commitment of 4 star point guard Corey Sanders of Lakeland, Fla. Sanders is the first player to commit to the Scarlet Knights in the 2015 Class. This 6-foot-2 guard is exciting to watch as he is one of the most athletic guards in the country. Sanders is best breaking pressure and attacking the basket where he can finish above the rim and through contact. Currently listed as the No. 32 prospect in the ESPN Top 100, Sanders gives Rutgers a quick, athletic guard who can score in bunches.
