Five-star shooting guard Antonio Blakeney announced his college choice during halftime of the game between nationally ranked DeMatha (Md.) and Sierra Canyon (Calif.).

The 6-foot-4 prospect from Orlando, Fla., had narrowed his list to UK, Louisiana State and Missouri a few weeks ago, and many recruiting analysts considered LSU the favorite.

Blakeney is considered one of the top 15 recruits in the class of 2015 by Rivals.com, ESPN and 247Sports. He originally committed to Louisville in September but backed out 11 days later.
