The 1999 NFL Draft
Antico Dalton-Linebacker-Hampton-sixth pick in sixth round to Minnesota
Notes: Lettered in football, basketball and track and field in high school. Lettered at Hampton the past three years. Was a backup in 1996 and '97, then moved into the starting lineup in '98 and had 42 tackles, 16 for loss and 12 1/2 sacks.
Positives: Workout warrior. Very strong for his size in terms of weightroom numbers and has excellent straight-line speed. Started to come on as a football player in '98 and really improved. Shows some pass-rush ability. Was able to beat a lot of tackles at the Division I-AA level with quickness. Can get up the field and really rush the passer.
Negatives: Too small for an every-down defensive end and may not have the instincts for linebacker. Still has a long way to go. Has to learn how to come off blocks better and develop his techniques and moves.
Summary: A project who will be considered because he can run so well. Might fit in as a pass-rushing defensive end.

Jerome James: Center 53
Born: Nov. 17, 1975
Seasons in NBA: Rookie
College: Florida A&M
Acquired: Second-round pick (36), 1998
He needs to get into better shape, but he's shown he has the potential to be a big presence on each end of the floor. James is a natural shot-blocker, and in scrimmages and preseason games he has shown he can score in the low post and that he is willing to bang his body against anybody. He didn't play organized basketball before attending college. This past fall while playing for the Harlem Globetrotters, James dunked on an 11-foot-4 rim.

South Carolina State Football Signs 18 Prospects...
Orangeburg, SC(OTW)-South Carolina State signed (18) high school football prospects to grants-in-aid Wednesday, the national signing day. Ten of the signees are from the Palmetto State, with seven from the Orangeburg surrounding area.
Among he prospects are two quarterbacks, six linemen, five defensive backs, two running backs, a fullback,and two linebackers.
The Bulldogs' Willie Jeffries said S.C. State had prioritized its recruiting based on certain needs, and he felt satisfied most of those priorites, but noted there were a couple of areas the team fell short in.
S.C. State was seeking help at quarterback, fullback, in the defensive secondary and along both lines.
"I feel that we did a good job bringing in those players we needed," Jeffries said. At least we think we did. However, you won't know until they get here and begin making a contribution. But at this point, we believe we did okay in most of our areas of needs, although we will still be looking to satisfy our needs at fullback."
Bulldog recruiting coordinator Ben Blacknall echoed Jeffries' sentiments.
"We certainly wanted to upgrade our talent level at quarterback," said Blacknall. "And with the two young men that we signed, we feel we have done that.
"And we were really hit hard in our secondary as we lost six players, including three starters and two of our top backups," Blacknall continued. "We still have some needs we are looking to fill, especially at fullback. We went after some outstanding prospects at this position, but we didn't get them. But, we hope we still have the opportunity to do so."
