Antonio Cromartie, the Rivals100.com No. 2 rated wide receiver in the country, is getting more defensive these days. Recently, Rivals.com caught up with him to find out more.
“I want to player cornerback in college,” Cromartie, who has starred on both sides of the ball as a junior and a senior, said.
The 6-foot-3 and 200 pound standout likes the idea of using his size and speed (4.3 in the 40-yard dash) to shut down the new trend of bigger and athletic receivers that are popping up all over the college football ranks.
Last week, the Tallahassee native had in-home visits with coaches from Florida and Michigan. This week he has entertained coaches from both Auburn and Florida State.
So where wills the Lincoln high school senior end up?
“I’m open to all school,” he said. “I want to go someplace where I’ll feel comfortable.”
Cromartie admitted that he’s getting some pressure from family to stay in Tallahassee. He also has cousins on the Florida roster (Gavin Dickey and Robert Cromartie) that wouldn’t mind his company in Gainesville.
He will officially visit Michigan (1/10), Florida (1/17), Miami (1/24) and Florida State (1/31).
Look for a decision from him around signing day.
