  • Tanksley Efianayi, a 6-foot-5 shooting guard/small forward from Daytona State, will visit St. John’s and Arizona State in September, but is still considering several other options, his junior college coach told SNY.tv Thursday morning.

    “He’s not down to those two schools, those are the two he’s going to visit in the fall,” Daytona coach Ryan Ridder said. “Coach [Steve] Lavin and Coach [Herb] Sendek, their assistants have done a really good job recruiting him and have built the best relationships. So he’s going to visit those two, I’m not sure when he’s going to make his decision, fall or spring.”

    Henry Ellenson has cut his list to Kentucky, Marquette and Michigan State.

    Reggie Rankin from ESPN was the first to report the news.

    Bob Bradovich of Wisconsin WQOW News 18 reported Ellenson will visit Michigan State Sept. 20, Marquette Sept. 26 but he has not set date to visit Kentucky.

    Ranked No. 9 in the Class of 2015 by 247 Sports, Ellenson averaged 18 points per game for Wisconsin Playground this summer on the EYBL Circuit.

    Antonio Blakeney will take his official visit to Louisville from Sunday-Tuesday and will attend Monday’s football game with Miami, Steve Jones of the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.

    The visit was first reported by Scout.com.

    “He’s just excited about going up there and visiting, and he’s enjoying the process,” coach Alex Jackson of Oak Ridge (FL) High School told Jones.

    Jackson added: “We play a very similar style to (U of L), so I think it could be a smooth transition as a place he (could decide to attend).… We’re an up-tempo team. We press full-court and do things they do similarly. We just do it on a high school level, so you can see the fit that would be there based off of that. But (Blakeney’s recruitment) is wide-open thing, and he’s just enjoying this time, which he deserves to do.”
