"He is a really good strong safety," said Robert Craft, NFC's coach. "His best attribute is that he's such a good tackler. Tony plays with great technique."
"In many ways he's further along," Craft said. "Truthfully, he's more sound and plays with better technique. Last year there were coaches watching Field that thought he was Blanks. This is an aggressive kid who can cover and really tackles well in space."
"He didn't camp at many places this past summer because he had a little bit of a hamstring injury but he did go out and see some schools like Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia, Auburn, Ole Miss and Clemson," Craft said. "I know South Carolina is showing a lot of interest. Auburn called about his yesterday and he visited the Tigers yesterday for their Georgia game.
