Two More For Antoine

Jermaine Antoine, the versatile junior athlete (DB/WR/RB) from Loreauville High School in south Louisiana, reported a pair of new offers today.

"Southern Miss offered first and then North Texas came through with one later today," said Jermaine Antoine, who also holds offers from Texas A&M, Memphis and Western Kentucky, and FCS programs such as McNeese State and Alabama A&M.

"My top two are LSU and Texas A&M. If I went to a top three, number three would be Kentucky. Southern Miss and North Texas do have legit shots at me, though. Their coaches said today that they think I can play at the next level. The coaches especially liked this slam I had (on defense) on my highlight tape against Episcopal when they ran a reverse against us.

"They came to the wrong side on that play."

The recruiting process is becoming a little muddled for Antoine.

"I like LSU probably as my number one," he said. "I like them a lot. It's hard, though.

"Texas A&M is up there and has stayed in touch since they offered. They're an SEC school."

Antoine says Kentucky and Nebraska are among his newest suitors, and he has reciprocal interest in the Wildcats and Cornhuskers.

"Kentucky called my coaches and said they like me at running back, so I expect an offer from them soon," said Antoine. "Nebraska's coach saw me recently at a track meet. He couldn't talk to me, but I heard they've said I looked the part and that they want me at cornerback."

Antoine plays both sides of the ball for Loreauville, a small public school that competes on the Class 2A level at the moment.
