Tony Threatt is a 6-3, 195-pound athlete from Leeds High School in Leeds, (Ala.), and he and teammate Randon Carnathan have become the latest verbal commitments for Coach Joey Jones and his South Alabama Jaguars.
"Randon and I discussed committing to South Alabama, and we decided to call Coach [Bill] Clark and let him know we planed to play for him at South Alabama," Tony Threatt told JagsJungle.com from his home in Leeds, (Ala.).
"I also talked to Coach Walker, and he told me he was very happy we had decided to come to South Alabama and play our college football."
Tony tells us why he chose South Alabama over Army, Samford, Murray State and JSU.
"South Alabama showed me a lot of love," Threatt said. "They wanted me to play for them, and that showed in how hard they recruited me, and Randon."
"It feels good to be a part of a program just getting started. It's very exciting, and the coaches told us they needed us to help them start out producing winning seasons at South Alabama."
"I am very familiar with the campus because my basketball team plays our regional tournament there. I have been all over campus, and it's a very nice place."
"When I went for my unofficial visit they showed us where the new facilities were going to be, and I liked the location. It also looks like it is going to be very nice facilities when they finish them," Threatt said.
While Tony Threatt and Randon Carnathan have pledged a verbal commitment to South Alabama, that hasn't stopped others from recruiting the talented play makers.
"Murray State, Samford and Jacksonville State are still recruiting me. Murray State is probably recruiting me the hardest, with Samford close behind," Threatt stated.
"I consider myself a strong commitment to South Alabama, and it would take a lot to change my mind. Randon and I have discussed playing together, and now we have the opportunity to do that," Threatt said.
JagsJungle.com also took the time to ask Threatt about this week's game with Saint Clair County.
"They have an all around good football team. They have a lot of speed on defense, and they have big wide receivers. We will have to come out and play our best against them," Threatt concluded.
