Texas Camp Preview: Malik Antoine

CB Malik Antoine

The University of Texas and head coach Charlie Strong are set to host several hundred recruits representing over 130 different high schools in the next 10 days. One of them is 2016 standout cornerback Malik Antoine.

Malik Antoine is one of the top players in the state of Louisiana. The 5-foot-11, 180-pound lock down corner is anxious to not only visit Austin this weekend but to perform in front of the Texas coaching staff.

Antoine checks in from Baton Rouge (LA) University Laboratory. He will visit Texas this weekend with LSU standout verbal commitment teammate Dylan Moses. Moses is a freak of nature from the class of 2017. Moses, a 6-foot-2, 220-pound linebacker/running back is already a five-star player according to Scout.com.

Antoine will be on a mission this weekend in Austin.

"I'm ready," Malik Antoine said. "I am ready for camp and to have a good showing. I can't wait to get there again!"

Antoine, a two-way standout, understands what receivers are trying to do and shows exceptional anticipation when the ball is in the air.

He has great burst and plays the game bigger than his size indicates. He is very quick and does a nice job of turning and running with the wide out. Antoine is very valuable and will line up all over the field including corner, slot and running back. Texas is looking at him as a cover corner.

Antoine talked about his game and what he does best.

"As a player I am a perfectionist," Antoine said. "I strive off making sure my technique is perfect. My technique more than anything is one of my strengths. I am a cover corner and my technique is what separates me from some players. I think my greatest strength is my passion for the game of football. I Love playing the sport and just being around football. If you ask some of my teammates they would tell you that I bring so much desire and passion each time I step on the field. Above all I think that's what makes me a standout player."

Antoine is no stranger to Austin or the Texas coaching staff.

"I am looking forward to seeing Texas and the coaching staff once again," he said. "I really enjoyed Texas when I visited. I am looking forward to building my relationship with the coaches."
