BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Antonio Blakeney announced via Twitter that he will enter his name in the NBA Draft, but will not hire an agent.

That will leave open the option of Blakeney returning to LSU for his sophomore season.

Blakeney played in all 33 games at LSU his freshman year and started in 24 of them. The freshman averaged 12.6 points per game last season, hitting 50 three-point shots.

Blakeney was named to the SEC All-Freshman Team. He was also names the SEC Freshman of the Week twice during his freshman season. 

Ben Simmons and Tim Quarterman have already declared for the draft and losing Blakeney would be a very big loss for LSU.
