"I could go either way (OL or DL), but most
of them are looking at me for guard. I have played guard pretty much my whole
life, except last year I played center when our center got hurt. But I have also
played DE, DT and long snapper my whole life too. I kick off too."
would Steen consider to be his strengths?
"I am stronger than most

are recruiting Anthony the hardest right now?
"I got a full offer
from Southern Mississippi a couple of weeks back. The coaches knew me from Ole Miss. I have been going over to the Ole Miss camps for a few years now, and they
liked me from there. Alabama wants me to come to their Jr Day, and I am getting
a lot of letters from Wake Forest. I am going to USM's Jr Day this weekend and
Did Steen grow up a fan of any particular school?
Ole Miss. I have been going to their games ever since I was a little kid. But
I do not know what is going on now. I have not heard from them since they changed
staffs. It was looking good for me to get a scholarship with their last staff,
but I do not know now."
What about MSU?
"I have not heard
from them since the season was over either. I was getting some letters during
the season but they quit writing me."
Which colleges have caught Anthony's
eye so far?
"So far? LSU, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, USM,
Ole Miss, MSU, and oh yea, Miami called. I talked to one of their assistants the
other day. They would like for me to come play for them. He said he saw some of
my film from your network (Scout.com) and said he was really impressed. They want
me to come down to one of their camps."
Anthony reports a 2.0 GPA.
