There are very few players in the country in any class who can score the basketball like Orlando (Fl.) Oak Ridge shooting guard Antonio Blakeney. The four-star prospect lit up the scoreboard all summer long playing with Each 1 Teach 1, and he's continued to do so early on in his junior season as he's currently averaging 24 points per game.
Scoring ability such as Blakeney's is an attraction for college coaches. He's collected offers from some of the best college basketball programs in the country.
"Florida, Florida State, North Carolina, Kansas, Missouri, N.C. State, Memphis, Louisville, Miami, Georgia and a few others are on me the hardest right now and they all offered," Blakeney told Rivals.com. "Marquette also offered and so did Central Florida and South Florida."
With all the new recruiting attention coming his way since the summer, Blakeney remains open to each school recruiting him at the moment.
"I'm really pretty open right now," Blakeney said. "I like all those schools. They have all have different things I like. Some of them have really good coaching or really good facilities or I have a great relationship with the coaches."
Florida has recruited its home state very well in recent years under Billy Donovan, and the Gators certainly have the caught the attention of Blakeney.
"Florida has a great program," said Blakeney. "They really let their players play. Coach Donovan is a great coach. His teams always play well together and play really hard."
Leonard Hamilton hired former Georgia Southern head coach Charlton Young as an assistant coach during the off-season. Young has had a lot of success recruiting the Sunshine State in the past and hopes to build on that in the 2015 class with Blakeney.
"They really focus on defense and are really good at it. Coach Hamilton and Coach C.Y. are really cool people, so that's a good situation over there too," Blakeney said.
North Carolina is one of the more recent offers for Blakeney.
"They have a really good program. Coach [Roy] Williams and coach Hubert Davis are really good coaches, and I have a good relationship with them. Coach Davis is the coach recruiting me and he's cool people," Blakeney explained.
Kansas plucked Joel Embiid out of Florida in the 2013 class, and he's off to a great start in Lawrence as a freshman. The Jayhawks hope to come back to Florida for another talented prospect in the 2015 class.
"Kansas, that's really high-major," Blakeney said. "They have a really good program. They always have good players. They prepare their players when they come in and get the best out of them. They have a really cool coaching staff there."
For now, Blakeney's main focus is on making the most of his junior season of high school basketball.
"I honestly don't know when I'll commit. I'm really thinking more about my high school season right now than anything else. If I had to guess, I'd say maybe after the high school season is over," Blakeney said.
"Every school is going to have great opportunities, but I just want the best opportunity for me. I want to have a really good relationship with the coaches and the players. I want to know that I'll have an opportunity to come in and play wherever I go."
