#14 WR Deangelo Antoine
Redshirt Freshman, 5’10", 185 lbs.
2015 Stats: Antoine redshirted last season.
Position on Depth Chart: Deangelo was not on the depth chart issued after spring practice.
How He Came To USF: Antoine played at Oak Ridge High School in Orlando, where he was a receiver and cornerback. He caught 68 passes for 1,013 yards and 10 touchdowns as a senior, helping the Pioneers reach the second round of the state playoffs and getting himself named to the Class 7A all-state second team. Deangelo had already committed to USF in July 2014 and no one made a serious push to flip him.
Here are Deangelo’s high school highlights - he has an offense and a defense reel.
Recruiting Rankings: ESPN and 247 gave Antoine three stars. Scout and Rivals gave him two.
Projected Playing Time: Antoine has good open-field moves and he was a real handful as a slot receiver at Oak Ridge. Unfortunately USF has Rodney Adams, Chris Barr, and Jordan Reed, so Antoine will probably have to wait his turn for playing time unless there are injuries. Deangelo was returning some punts during spring, so there may be an opportunity there if Tajee Fullwood becomes too valuable to the defense. He might also still be in the doghouse after being caught with unprescribed Xanax last fall (although the premise for pulling his car over in the first place seems pretty sketchy).
