Although he's committed to Mississippi State, that hasn't stopped several other schools from continuing to call him.

"Ole Miss, Memphis State and Arkansas are still calling me," said Antonio.

Antonio has one official visit set, but several other schools have talked to him about taking an official visit.

"I visit Mississippi State January 20th," said Antonio, rated a three-star prospect by "Ole Miss and Memphis State have talked to me about setting up visits. They said they were going to set it up, but they haven't. If they offer me a visit and tell me to come, then I'll go."

While other visits may possibly be on the agenda, Antonio is definitely looking forward to the one visit that he has set up.

"I've very excited about it," said Antonio, who earned 2nd team all-state after recording 131 tackles, 7 sacks and 13 forced fumbles this past season.

Part of that excitement may be due to a couple of players on the team.

"I have friends on the team, (linebackers) Jamon Hughes and (Tim) Bailey," said Antonio.

He also has become friends with two future teammates, current MSU commitments Marcus Green and Lee Chambers. In fact, Marcus' official visit to MSU is on the same dates as Antonio's.

"I talk to Marcus Green and Lee Chambers (on the phone)," said Antonio, currently ranked the 37th best strongside linebacker in the nation by "We talk about our plans for when we get to State, but mostly we talk about not letting any other schools come in."

Antonio is making his plans on being at State, but what should MSU fans plan on seeing when Antonio sets foot on the football field at State?

"I am just an aggressive linebacker," said Antonio. "Give me a helmet and shoulder pads and I'll show you what to do with them."

State fans can't ask for anything more than that from the future Bulldog.

Look for additional updates on Antonio as we continue to move closer to signing day.
