It was less than three weeks ago when Rivals.com introduced you to a sleeper prospect from a hard to get to area of Southern California. Since that report this player has seen four offers come to the table. That’s not all; there could be more on the way.
The player that Rivals.com introduced to you less than three weeks ago was wide receiver/cornerback Anthony Celestine (5-10, 180, 4.4) from Ridgecrest (Calif.) Burroughs.
The word spread fast about the talent heavenly Celestine. Oregon, Oregon State, Colorado State and Wyoming have all offered Celestine a scholie.
Colorado, Fresno State and San Jose State are also beginning show interest in Celestine. The word is just getting out on him so the prevailing wisdom is there will be more.
“Anthony is the total team player,” Burroughs head coach Jeff Steinberg said. “He has already told the teams that have offered him that he won’t take trips until his season is over.”
“Anthony doesn’t want to be a distraction to team,” Steinberg said. “He wants to keep focused and win a CIF championship.”
In seven games this season Celestine is already closing in on his numbers from a season ago. So far in 2003, Celestine has caught 52 passes for 1,087 yards and 13 touchdowns.
In part time duty as a free safety in 2003 Celestine has two picks.
Celestine was selected all-state, all-area, all-county and all league as a junior when he caught 59 passes for 1,192 yards and scored 13 touchdowns.
Celestine also picked off seven passes as a defensive back in 2002.
