Hinton passed for over 1,000 yards and had 19 touchdowns against only five interceptions, and he is poised to team with Chris Slaughter to form a lethal pitch and catch combination.
Hinton has drawn the interest of several schools already.
"I like Georgia, Florida, Auburn, Georgia Tech and Clemson. Georgia and Auburn have talked about offering me," Hinton said.
Who's on top of the heap at this time?
"Georgia is my favorite. That's where I've always wanted to go. I've got some teammates up there and I grew up a Georgia fan."
Why did his four other schools of interest make the cut?
Florida: "Jaquez Green went down there. He used to live real close to my house."
Auburn: "I went to their camp last year and I liked it. They were really the first school to talk to me."
Georgia Tech: "I just like the plays they run. I think I would fit in with that real good."
Clemson: "I know Chansi Stuckey from when he was in high school. We're pretty good friends."
What is he looking for most in a school?
"I want a place I can go have some fun and just play ball."
Any camp plans for Hinton?
"I'm supposed to go back to Auburn and to Georgia. Coach said he's going to try to get me up to Clemson also."
Hinton's main target is Chris Slaughter who is also known as "Mr. Sure Hands." Would they like to stay with one another in college?
"Me and Chris have been talking about going together. We each want to go where the other one goes."
Antonio was in attendance at January's Kennedy/CES Combine but did not work out due to a recent ankle injury. Is he feeling better now?
"I still have that ankle injury in my right ankle. It just hurts when I land on it. I have a chipped bone in there, but I'm supposed to start throwing again and working real soon."
Keep your eye on this Central Georgia signal caller because he's going to be one of the hottest quarterback commodity's in the south when it's all said and done.
