Brandon Antwine: Holding 10 Offers

Garland HS DT Brandon Antwine is ranked among the top prospects in the State of Texas for the 2006 class. He took some time to speak to InsideTexas.com about his recruitment thus far.

Brandon Antwine currently holds the No. 1 position among DTs in the Scout.com Texas Hot 100 and with the talent that abounds in Texas, that says a lot. Antwine (6-2, 275, 4.79) also has the honor of being on the Scout.com Southwest Hot 100 list.

Antwine currently lays claim to 10 offers. "I have been offered by Texas Tech, Kansas, Kansas State, Iowa State, Utah, UTEP, Arkansas, Colorado, Indiana, and Arizona State," he said. "I know that I'll be taking official visits to Iowa State and Texas Tech." Antwine has his eye on one school in particular that he hopes will offer. "I really like USC. They told me that they may offer me this summer."

There is one school that has offered Antwine that is standing out to him. "I also really like Iowa State," he said. "I really think I could go in there and play early and (Running Backs) Coach (Tony) Alford has told me personally that I could come in and play early. Coach Alford is a very straightforward guy. I really like that about him."

Antwine has made one unofficial visit so far. "I have been on an unofficial visit to Arkansas," he said. "It was a great trip. They have real nice facilities and good educational programs."

The highly-ranked DT has had some contact with the Texas Coaching Staff but no offer at this time. "I have talked to Coach (Mack) Brown a couple times and Coach (Bobby) Kennedy a few times as well. They both seem to be good guys," he said.

What is Antwine looking for in a school? "The school I choose must have good academic programs," he said. "I may not be playing football for the rest of my life so getting my degree is very important to me. I also want the chance to play early and hopefully not have to redshirt. Distance will play no factor in my decision and I would like to go out of state."

Antwine said he plans to camp at "USC, Florida, and Iowa State."
