FAU football recruit recap: Antonio Hadden

February 17, 2016

Antonio Hadden’s football career is relatively young, but his talent exceeds his experience. The all-state wide receiver said he didn’t start playing football until he was 14. “I had just began playing football, I was playing for talent. I had no fundamentals or nothing,” said Hadden, reminiscing on the beginning of his high school career. “By [junior] year I learned the game. By the senior, right now, I’m getting ready to read coverages.” Though he’s still learning, Hadden believes his 220-pound, 6-foot-2 frame allows him to play a physical game while also having the ability of beating a defender with his speed, giving him multiple ways to get open.
