It is that time of the year. Every day this month it seems, another Peach State prospect is emerging with major offers -- and that should come as no surprise. With the number of annual FBS-level signees out of the Peach State inching closer and closer to 200, college coaches are scouring film and highlights in search of the next big talent. This week, one such prospect has surfaced, and the SEC East is all over him.

Defensive end Antonio Riles (Lawrenceville, Ga./Archer) felt he did pretty well as a junior, but as a two-way player the 6-foot-4, 260-pound prospect was not satisfied with his performance on defense. So when his coach talked to him this month, he was surprised to hear the news.

“I was in the middle of offseason workouts and my coach told me I had a Kentucky offer,” Riles said. “I was tired so I did not know what to think about it. Then I got home and told everyone. It was crazy.”
