Three star cornerback Antione Cason (6-1, 180, 4.5) and Los Alamitos, Calif., teammates had all they could handle last Friday when the number three ranked in the nation Griffins took on Newhall (Calif.) Hart in a thriller that Los Al won in a squeaker 20-17.
“Hart was tough,” Cason said. “They came ready to play and they were in their house.”
“They just kept getting after it,” Cason said. “Even though we intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown on their first drive it didn’t stop these guys.”
The venue where the game was played, College in the Canyon, has that new turf that a lot of D-I schools play on these days and Cason seemed to have like it.
“I liked the turf,” Cason said. “I was able to make my cuts, plants and drives.”
For good measure, Cason had one pick in the game.
Cason has received calls from Arizona, Oregon State, Oregon, Washington State, Colorado and San Diego State.
So far Cason has offers from Arizona and Oregon State.
Cason has no clear-cut favorites at this time but he is getting ready to start planning trips.
“I will start to decide on my trips as early as next week,” Cason said. “No later than two weeks.”
Arizona, Oregon State, Oregon and Washington State have all offered visits to Cason.
Cason has outstanding bloodlines, his father Wendell Cason played seven years in the NFL as a cornerback for the Atlanta Falcons and played his college ball at Oregon.
In an earlier interview with Los Alamitos defensive coordinator Barry Sherr he has this say about his talented cornerback, “Antoine is going to be a major Pac10 recruit. He has tremendous upsides that has been going through a tremendous growing spurt and has the speed to match.”
Cason and his number three ranked in the nation Los Alamitos teammates will be hooking up with Brea high school at Veterans Stadium in Long Beach at 7:00 PM PST Friday evening.
