White Remains Solid


Posted Oct 5, 2006


Hollandale-Simmons High School has a reputation for defense. The top playmaker on defense this year is Mississippi State commitment Antonio White. Despite being committed, White has seen the demand for his services increase.

As a junior Antonio tallied 134 personnel stops and seven Quarterback sacks. The Starkville bound senior hopes to lead Simmons back to the state championship game this year.

Antonio and his defensive mates have yet to allow a point on the season. South Delta made two trips to pay dirt in 14-6 win over Simmons. An interception return and a late punt return provided the margin of victory.

White received five early scholarship tenders from Alabama, Memphis, Mississippi State, Ole Miss and Southern Miss. The late summer months also brought a pair of new SEC offers.

"Georgia and Auburn have offered," said the 6'2'' 240 pounder. "I got both of those offers in early August."

September 1st college recruiters could begin calling prospective student athletes as part of the recruiting process. Antonio has received his fair share of calls.

"Alabama, Memphis, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Auburn and Georgia have all called," said the three-star prospect.

Despite the increase in recruiting activity and a new pair of attractive offers, Antonio remains steadfast in his decision to spend his college days at Mississippi State.

"My commitment is solid," explained White. "I really like the team and the coaches. I have two friends from the delta on the team, Jamon Hughes and Timmy Bailey. I want to go up there and play with them and help them win an SEC championship."

Antonio expects to play early at Mississippi State and help the Bulldogs get back on the winning track.

"I am going up there to make a change," said White. "I am looking to play as a true freshman. I want to make an impact."

The Bulldog-to-be will be in Starkville this weekend to cheer for his future teammates.

"Alabama wanted me to come to their game this weekend, but I changed my mind. I am not sure when I will get to see them play. I am headed to the Mississippi State game with West Virginia this Saturday," said White.
