Antonio Poole (2011-LB) Video

Last night I spoke with Antonio Poole (2011-LB) who is from Cincinnati, OH and plays at Winston Woods High School. Poole told me the recruiting process is “going pretty good.” When asked about offers, he told me he currently holds 19 offers from various programs.

Of the schools recruiting him, he mentioned Cincinnati, Kentucky, Purdue, Michigan State and LSU as schools recruiting him hard. He also said most of the Big 10 and a few SEC schools came to visit him last week. In particular, he named Tennessee, LSU, Vanderbilt, Kentucky and Notre Dame. Steve Brown is handling his recruitment for Kentucky.

Poole told me he is looking for a school where he “fits in the system” and “feels comfortable”. He will narrow his list of schools over the next two weeks. He plans to attend some camps this summer, but hasn’t finalized his schedule. He could commit before his senior season, but isn’t going to rush into a decision.

Currently Poole is listed at 6’2” and 210 lbs. Some schools are recruiting him to play outside linebacker while others are talking to him about playing safety. Clearly is one of the most coveted players in Ohio. Hopefully the Cats make the first cut.

  1. I need this young man in Tennessee; I am a die hard Volunteer! Just about every tackle was solo and for a lost. I was concerned about his cover ability until 2:40 into the highlight when he broke up a pass 30 yds deep. Good defense!
