Antonio Blakeney Will Take An Official Visit To Louisville Next Weekend

Photo | Kelly Kline When Rick Pitino landed a commitment from five star guard Donovan Mitchell earlier this month, the name Antonio Blakeney stopped being mentioned quite as much as it had been throughout the entire summer. Blakeney has been one of Pitino’s top targets in the 2015 class for well over a year. However, with the addition of Mitchell, I don’t think anyone would have...

Donovan Mitchell: The Road To Louisville

Pitino on Chris Jones: As good a guard as I've coached
