Special teams could be the key for RB

Keola Antolin has long been committed to the Cats. He has been to Tucson once before, but this weekend he made his official visit. He learned there may be more than one way to see the field next season.

The running back would certainly like to carry the ball next year, but he knows there will be other players in his way. With the graduation of punt returner Antoine Cason, Antolin could see the field first on special teams. Antolin ran back punts and kickoffs at Bishop Gorman High School last year and knows that could be an edge in avoiding a redshirt.

He enjoyed his official visit this weekend because it gave him a chance to do more with the team and staff than he could do on an unofficial.

"I got to visit more places," Scout.com's 46th rated running back said. "I hung out with the players and went all around the city."

He spent a lot of time with the coaches and feels that they have "good chemistry". He is being recruited by Darrell Wyatt who he describes as "cool", and will be coached by Michael Smith, who Keola describes as "funny".

Antolin says he is firmly committed and will not make any other visits.
