Antoine

Five-star shooting guard Bryan Antoine has scheduled four official visits, according to a report Thursday morning from Adam Zagoria.

Duke is the major favorite on Antoine’s 247Sports Crystal Ball page, and he told the Herald-Leader earlier this month that he will definitely be making a college decision in time to sign with the school of his choice in November.
