2019 5-star guard Bryan Antoine is down to 5 schools, with Villanova, Duke, Kentucky, Florida and Kansas still in the running. He announced the decision on Twitter on Thursday evening.

Antoine also spoke with Pat Lawless about his list, and here’s what he had good things to say about ‘Nova.
“Villanova is close to home with it being only a couple of hours away,” he said. “What they have done in the past three years has been remarkable and just what Jay Wright has been doing with their players. He’s not known for one and done type players, but he does a great job developing his players. I really liked our in-home visit and I’ve known them since eighth grade. I feel like the friendship we have is very tight and Coach Wright will just call me to talk about normal stuff. It doesn’t have to be about basketball, sometimes he will just check up on me.”
Antoine has previously stated that he likely won’t make a decision until later this Summer or in the Fall. He had previously planned to take all of his official visits, so it’s a good bet that each of these schools will get one last chance to impress Antoine.
Most consider Duke to be the frontrunner heading into the Summer, with Antoine and Scottie Lewis continuing to suggest a package deal could be in the cards.
