Old Dominion secure the signature of CFC60 Frederik Antoine

After months of contemplation and multiple visits around the NCAA, CFC60 Frederik Antoine finally decided to sign with Old Dominion. The Montmorency product was entertaining offers from Buffalo, Ohio, Temple, Fresno State, Liberty, Kent State and Delaware State, but instead he decided to become the first Canadian to commit to Old Dominion since we began tracking back in 2010.

Antoine was a well known star in the CEGEP world while balling with the Nomades, but 2018 wasn’t a great year on the field after they were demoted to DII where he only caught . The off-year wasn’t enough to deter his NCAA suitors though, who saw him finished with 39 receptions for 627 yards and five touchdowns while they were still members of DI in 2017. It also helps he’s got a 6’1″, 200lbs, and plays like a man possessed with the ball in his hands.


With a lot of good FBS options to choose come, in the end it came down to his comfort level with the coaching staff, available playing time, and their desire to build a winning program in Conference USA,

“I chose ODU because it was the place where I was most likely to play my first year, and I enjoyed my visit this summer. My conversations with the coaches convinced me and I believe in the changes they want to make.”

Old Dominion restarted their program in 2009 after a 79 year hiatus, originally playing in the FCS before joining C-USA in 2014. Since they’ve arrived their best finish came in 2016 with a 10-3 record and victory in the Bahamas Bowl, but 2018 marked a low point finishing 4-8. They also had offers on the board for CFC100s Isaiah Bagnah, Jared Wayne and Kervens Bonhomme who all announced their signings earlier today, but they may still be alive in the race for CFC100 Theo Johnson.
