Antonio Henton, the AJC's player of the year for the 2005 season, will transfer from Ohio State to Georgia Southern and be immediately eligible for the 2008 season, a source close to the process has told the Journal-Constitution.

Henton, a native of Fort Valley, is a redshirt sophomore who was competing for the No. 2 position behind starter Todd Boeckman, who led the Buckeyes to the BCS championship game in 2007. Ohio State also signed quarterback Tyrelle Pryor, the nation's No.1 high school prospect, in February.

Henton is the second quarterback to transfer from Ohio State since Pryor signed. In January Rob Schoenhoft left for Delaware.

Henton, who led Peach County to a state AAA championship in 2005, sat out the 2006 season at Ohio State as a redshirt. He played in only three games as a backup in 2007.

Henton had to overcome some legal problems last September after being arrested in a prostitution sting in Columbus, Ohio. He later pled to a misdemeanor of loitering for prostitution and returned to the team.

Henton is currently in summer school at Ohio State and will report to Georgia Southern in time for preseason practice. He will have three years of eligibility remaining.

Henton, a dual threat as a quarterback, will compete with Lee Chapple and Kyle Collins for the quarterback position at Georgia Southern. Chapple, from Norcross (Greater Atlanta Christian), was named the No. 1 quarterback by coach Chris Hatcher after spring practice.

is coach hatcher the same guy from valsosta state? his dad coached me at southwest in macon.

Chris Hatcher at GSU is in fact the same coach who won the Div Championship at VD State.

And yes that would have been his Dad probably who coached you. A Great Football Family!

Coach Hatch brought the hatch Attack offense from VD STAte to GSU but GSU had jayson Foster here last year and stayed with the traditional GSU offense with a stronger passing game.

The 2008 Eagles will feature Hatch's vertical offense.

What chance do any of us regular guys have when a quarterback for a major college program has to pay for sex. He must be one ugly dude if he can't go into the bars in Columbus and find some girl that looks better than any of the prostitutes, doesn't have diseases and won't charge him money. I guess it's been proven time and time again that some people just get a rush from doing stupid #####.

There was much more to this than met the eye.  He was asked by the cop if he wanted to party and he asked how much.  She said $20 and he allegedly agreed to it, but he only had $18 in his pocket.  Watching the tape, he seemed like he was just clowning (a significant portion of the audio could not be understood) and that a good lawyer could have gotten it tossed on the ambiguity of what was offered and what he actually intended to do.  He pled, I'm sure, because the university wanted the headache to go away.  Local media, especially the loser on our afternoon sports radio show, grilled him unmercifully.

He's a good, potentially very good, QB who should have been put into the championship game to see action when the the starter choked up time and again.  I don't know what GSU has to put around him, but he can be a difference maker and I'll be rooting for him to succeed.
