Take Antonio White for example. Antonio is thought of as one of the premier defensive players in the Magnolia state this year. Like most wanted prospects, there is pressure in each direction you look.
We spoke to Antonio last night to
do a profile with him. He stated that he would prefer to stay in Mississippi and
liked both Ole Miss and MSU.
We called White back again tonight to see if he had
sent in some more film for the network.
Here is how the conversation
Did you send in your tape? "Yes, and oh yea, I just committed
to the Ole Miss staff," added Antonio.
You told us last night that you liked both
Ole Miss and MSU; what changed your mind? "You know, Ole Miss is the only
one that came through and gave me a solid offer and visited my school. I have
been calling them a lot lately, and I just decided to go ahead and commit to them.
I am looking forward to my trip to Ole Miss this weekend. I think that is where
I am headed."
You sound kind of hesitant when you state that you think
that is where you are headed; are you sure about this commitment? "Yes sir,
I am pretty sure, but I am still debating it a little."
Did you tell
the Ole Miss staff that you committed? "Yes sir. I called Coach Hughes to
let him know."
Are you still leaving the door just a little bit cracked?
"Yes sir, I am not all the way sure, but I am pretty sure. I am still debating
Do you want us to list you as committed to Ole Miss? "Yes
As we were typing up his commitment release; Antonio gives us
Here is what was revealed by White:
I just wanted to call and let you know that I still have a whole year to think
about this. I am going to go up to Ole Miss this Saturday (for Jr Day) and check
it all out with Willard Ross and his mother. My mom can not come with me. She
has to take a test at work so I will probably wait until I bring her up there
with me before I commit. I still think I am going to go to Ole Miss, but I want
to think this through a little more."
Life in the recruiting world.
Isn't it fun:)
