Notable: Everything about Antonneous Clayton screams Florida Gators defensive end. He has the size of Ronald Powell, the wingspan of Alex McCalister and quickness of Dante Fowler. He can fit in nicely to the lineage that has been created at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium for defensive ends in recent years. Clayton can destroy anyone he lines up against will make Gator fans happy for many years. Clayton was an Under Armour All-American his senior year and rose to the five star level after his week in Orlando.

Quotable: “Me and Coach Mac just had a real laid back and relaxed talk,” Clayton said after his official visit. “He just told me that he was glad that I was a Gator and that I’m the leader of this class. He told me to keep working hard.”

Hailing from Alabama in the midst of typical Iron Bowl family, she learned very quickly just how deep ties in the SEC could run. She came to Gainesville after college to pursue a degree as television sports reporter but quickly realized she missed writing. She’s excited to now marry the two aspects for Gator fans. She loves Jesus, her daddy and football; wants to be Billy Donovan’s best friend and firmly believes that offensive lineman are the best people on earth. Follow her on Twitter @KassidyGHill
