High high expectations for the man. Hope he does amazing things here.

He's got his black stripe though, right? If so, he's looking up at Togai, who killed a man in the circle drill

Do I see a BB Landers junior here? I mean the way he's quick off the ball and in the backfield messing things up. 

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

That's what I thought: a much larger BB Landers. A few inches and about 30 pounds larger. I always wondered how highly Landers would have been ranked had he been just a few inches taller. Now I know. Of course, Landers' listing of 6'1 seems highly charitable (I'm guessing he's more like 5'11).

LOL! That's funny! Reminds me of my HS days, when I was an O Tackle and listed in the program as 6' 1" and 205 lbs. when I was really 5' 10 1/2' and 185. Oh, to be 185 again! 

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

I would root for those Auburn douchebags to lose every game...  but they do play Alabama and Tennessee.   Let's hope the Burrow tigers light em up this year

Very excited to have all three of these highly rated DT's and to watch them  play.

Im guessing he gets spot duty this year and steps in for Jones/Landers next year, explodes and is off the NFL after 2019. He seems destined for that if what they say about how he plays holds true.

I up-voted you to help negate the DV.

I respectfully disagree.  I think he just may be in the 2-deep at some point THIS year.  This young man does have a fast first step, incredible.  He will do great things here in the Scarlet & Gray.

What's round on the ends and high in the middle? Tell me if you know!

Agreed. I think he'll break into the two-deep, if not beat out Landers for the starting position (if Togai or Vincent don't beat him out instead).

Plan A DT.. remember his recruitment very well .  Coach J really wanted him but OSU had 2nd to last home visit..Auburn last, the next night.  SEC 'cruitin at its worst.  UFM very disappointed .  Think the son really wanted OSU and LJ but "other" factors involved...not to be overcome in that socio-economic setting.  Watched the announcement ceremony in toto.  Assuming injury healed and in shape looking for A performance this year...potential exceeds many already on roster.

 Given the unprecedented quality, depth, and experience of the competition, Antwuan has quite a challenge in front of him. 

To say nothing of what many view as a lost period of half to 1 1/2 years of the normal pace of 'development' under the same coaches.

If Antwuan can persevere through all that... that reputed questionable 'reliability' of his 'great first move & blow'... will 'finish' very well indeed.

Great burst, good running for a DT, wraps up and finishes tackles. With the added threat of our DEs Jackson should have a field day.

Larry Johnson is going to turn this guy into a QB eating machine. Very strong. Looking forward to watching him mature and develop. God Bless Antwuan!!! Welcome to the family brother. Put the work in brother-it will pay off later. Football and books.
