Antonio attended the Nike Camp this past spring. His numbers at the camp were an impressive 4.53 forty and an impressive 30 inch vertical leap.

Antonio also attended the Mississippi State camp in June and really caught the attention of the MSU coaches.

Antonio McCoy Interview:

I saw you at the Mississippi State football camp. What did the coaches at Mississippi State tell you they liked about you?
"They talked about how they need a go-to wide receiver and how I will get the ball. Things like that."

Did it surprised you how well the MSU coaches responded to how you played during the camp?
"Yeah, it surprised me."

Have you attended any other camps since that camp?
"No, I haven't went to any others."

Do you plan on attending any other camps this summer?
"I don't think so."

I know when we first talked Mississippi State really wasn't that high on your list. After attending their camp, would you say that they are back in the picture with you?
"Yeah, they are."

What schools would you say you are the most interested in, now?
"Auburn, Southern Miss, Alabama and State. I would also consider Memphis."
