Antone Smith Q&A

Smith ran for 2,814 yards and 44 touchdowns in 12 games as a senior and led Pahokee to the Class 2A state championship with 276 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Now he has to decide where he is going to play his college ball.

What have you been up to lately?

Chillin man, just dealing with all the recruiting stuff. I'm ready for it to be over.

How was CaliFlorida this year?

Oh man, that was great. There were a lot of great players involved this year. Me, Randy (Phillips), and a bunch of guys were out there having fun.

I didn't see you at the Army All-American Game?

They never invited me! Can you believe that? Oh well, I ain't sweatin' it too much.

Now that football season is finished, what's next on the athletic front?

Track practice starts next week. I'll be doing the one (100m), two (200m), and 4 by 1.

You came close to the state title twice. Is it yours this year?

I hope so, man. I couldn't even tell you what I'm running right now. It's been so long, I need to get back out there.

Back to back state football titles. Talk about that

I love winning, man. That's what I'm used to.

How's all the recruiting stuff?

It's alright. It's almost over now.

Who's still in it?

Miami, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, and maybe LSU.

How are the in-home visits coming along?

Good. Auburn had a bunch of coaches here Tuesday night. I talked to the Miami coaches a few days ago. Florida was by last night and Florida State Thursday. They all pretty much say the same things. I'm just tired of the whole process.

Talk about your Miami visit?

It was good. I had been there before so a lot of it was nothing new. Miami's up there.

What about Miami's depth at running back?

They lost Frank (Gore) so the job would be wide open. Depth charts don't mean a whole lot. The best guy will play wherever I go and I know what I got.

What about Auburn?

Good program, cool coaches, I like it there. They're right there too.

What's next for visits?

Florida this week and Florida State next weekend.

When will you make a final choice?

On signing day. Wherever I feel most comfortable, that's where I'll be.

It's all even right now, isn't it?

Yeah. I'm just waiting to take all my visits before I figure it all out.
