Three-star safety Antonyo Sotolongo of Miami (Fla.) Gulliver Prep doesn't have a leader among his top three of Arkansas, Duke and West Virginia, but says it's close between them. He hopes to decide between now and midseason and that whichever school shows him the most attention in that time will win his services.
"When September rolls around, we'll see who calls," the 6-foot, 194-pound Sotolongo said. "We'll see who wants to talk because I can't commit to a school that doesn't bother calling me to say hi. There's chemistry that I need to have with the coaching staff and that's what's going to make my decision."
As for his finalists, the Razorbacks' best leverage is having incoming freshman Cornelius Floyd, Sotlongo's former Gulliver Prep teammate.
"He was a good cornerback for us and they're telling me he's doing really good," Sotolongo said. "They're saying he has the potential to star this coming season and that it could be the same thing for me if I go over there."
Sotolongo has talked with Floyd about his experience at Arkansas thus far.
"He likes it a lot for the most part," he said. "He hasn't stepped on the game field yet so he doesn't know what the atmosphere is like, so he's excited about that. He said he's happy with what he sees."
Duke is another school he's high on.
"I used to speak to them about twice a week but they've got a full roster now, so it's more of a steady pace with them," he said. "I still keep in contact and I don't want them to think I've left them in the dust. For right now, it's a matter of seeing what's going on with their recruiting.
"I've been there for camp, and seen the facilities and parts of the campus and I like it there. It's nice and cool and I could see myself playing there."
Sotolongo likes West Virginia for its persistence.
"They mail me on a constant basis," he said. "It seems like I get 4-5 letters a day. They let me know that they're there and they're in constant contact with me, whether it's to say they had a good practice today or whatever. They're always on top of it and I like to get attention from their coaches by whatever means necessary."
Sotolongo doesn't yet have official visit dates for his finalists but said he plans on being in Wisconsin for an official visit in December.
He had 67 tackles, 3 fumble recoveries, 4 interceptions and 256 return yards for 3 touchdowns.
