In-State Sleeper Starting to Get Attention

Former Harper Woods Trinity Coach George Sahadi lists DE/TE <b>Antonio Hinton</b> as one of the best kept secrets in the state of Michigan. GBW caught up with Antonio recently to find out how things are going in his recruitment.

Michigan High School football expert Jim S. touted Antonio Hinton one top sleepers in the upcoming senior class next year. (For those that missed Jim’s report, click here). At 6-4 240 pounds, Hinton possesses the type of athleticism that turned heads at last year’s UM camp. While Coach Sahadi indicated that his former pupil will have to improve his academics, he once again asserted in a conversation earlier this week that this young man has the talent to really do some things at the next level if he gets his affairs in order.

Antonio’s recruitment is just starting to pick up and he fills GBW in on some of his upcoming visit plans.
