Report: 5-Star SG Decommits From Louisville 11 Days After Committing, Now Considering Kentucky, Could Be Shoe Company Related

Recruits decommit from the schools they've pledged to all the time. Usually, though, the renouncing of the commitment doesn't come only a week or so after making the verbal agreement. 

Antonio Blakeney, a five-star guard out of Oak Ridge, Fla., committed to Louisville on Sept. 4. The 6-foot-3, 180-pound shooting guard is back on the market, though, decommitting from the Cardinals 11 days after making his commitment. 

Blakeney told CBS Sports he made his decision too early.

"I feel like I made a quick emotional decision based on some of the wrong reasons," Blakeney told CBSSports.com.

Jerry Meyer, a national recruiting analyst for 247 Sports, thinks this is shoe-company related.

Blakeney has offers from nearly every school in the country, though Kentucky and LSU are reportedly two of the likeliest destinations for the elite talent.
