"Mississippi State and Ole Miss have offered me," said Antwon.

Both schools should receive a camp visit this summer.

"The camps I would like to go to are Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Alabama and LSU," reported Antwon. "Florida has sent me (a camp brochure), but I don't know if we are going to make the drive. When we come back from the Mississippi/Alabama (All-Star) game, I might go to the Mississippi State camp."

And not surprisedly all of the schools he may camp at have made his list of favorites.

"My favorites are Mississippi State, LSU, Ole Miss, Alabama, Florida and Miami," noted Antwon.

He explained what he likes about each of those six schools.

"I like Mississippi State because of the coaches, players. All of them are fun to be around. They are turning their program around due to all the recruiting they had. I like how they are getting all these players," said Antwon. "I like Ole Miss' coaches. I haven't really met any of their players. I like LSU's crowd, fans and coaches. I like Alabama's defense. Their defensive coach is real nice. I played against (Alabama football player) Jimmy Johns of Brookhaven. He said it is nice there. I like Florida's crowd and defense. Their players are real nice. I like Miami's style of defense, their coaches, their winning."

Antwon mentioned MSU's recruiting. That led to the question what specific things have impressed him about their recruiting?

"Last year, when I went to see them play I saw that they didn't have playmaker wide receivers, so they went out and got about three of them," said Antwon, referring to signees Tony Burks and Ryan Mason and commitment Co-Eric Riley. "Plus, they have gotten more skill players and more defensive linemen. They got people who really want to win. I like that."

Will their recruiting success have any influence on him when it comes times to commit?

"No, not at all. It's hard for me to tell what school I want to go to," he said.
