Hoskins Updates His Progress
Antonio Hoskins profile "Everything is going good right now," said Antonio. "I am just taking classes right now and working on getting eligible. They are supposed to end somewhere around July 20th. I am taking an Earth Science and a math class. I feel real good about everything." Initially Hoskins, planned to be on campus and in uniform this fall, but those plans have now changed. "After I finish my classes, everything will be sent to the clearinghouse," explained Antonio. "I expect to be cleared and then enrolled on the campus of Mississippi State in January. I will be there for spring practice." Hoskins plans to sit out the fall semester in lieu of attending junior college and wasting two years of eligibility. The idea of playing four years in the SEC was music to Antonio and his recruiting coach's ears. "Coach Saunders has been in touch with the Mississippi State coaches to tell them how things are going," explained Hoskins. "I talked to Coach Grimes last month. He was real excited about everything and he's excited about me getting there." The hard hitting linebacker explains that the pot of gold at the end of his proverbial rainbow comes in the form of early playing time. "I see myself as having a chance to be in the top four or five linebackers on the roster," said Antonio. "With a lot of hard work, I plan on playing some as a freshman. It's going to be a lot of work, but I am looking forward to it."
