2016 safety Antoine Webster starting to get noticed
One of the top safety prospects in South Florida in 2016, Antoine Webster of the Class 2A state champions Champagnat Catholic (Hialeah, Fla.), is already experiencing an uptick in his recruitment.
Though he doesn't claim any early offers, programs like Ohio State, Pittsburgh, Tennessee, South Carolina, and Auburn have expressed interest this offseason.
"I've met assistants from each program that's come by school briefly," the young safety said. "They all like my aggressiveness on film and said they would be back."
As a sophomore starter for the Lions, Webster posted 82 total tackles, 10 TFL, four interceptions, forced one fumble, and scored two defensive touchdowns.
"I'm looking forward to the competition, getting more exposure, and putting in work with my older brother Kayvon."
Kayvon tells the younger Webster to stay grounded and not let the process change him.
"He tells me not to get too big-headed, everything is just starting to develop for me. Kayvon thinks I have a bright future and he wants me to take things one step at a time."
Between 7-on-7 tournaments and running track this spring, Webster told FlaVarsity that his coaches plan on taking him and his teammates on several unofficial visits.
"My coaches are taking us around this summer to visit a few campuses and to participate in camps. I'm not sure exactly on all the camps, but we'll work out at several."
Webster is focusing on increasing his overall game currently.
"I'm working to build up my stamina, and improve my footwork and ball skills."
When selecting a program to play for in college, he says that playing close to home won't make a difference in his decision.
"My mom is okay with me leaving home. She wants me to see and experience more of what's out there, so playing close to home won't be a major factor for me."
