Pascagoula Defensive End Draws First Offer

There is a certain part of Caleb Caston's family that hopes he becomes an Arkansas State Red Wolves. Since part of his family made the move from the Mississippi Gulf Coast to Marion, Ark., a few years ago it would be awfully convenient for going to see games.

"They love it up there,'' said Caston. "They moved up there from McComb, Miss., a few years ago. They like that I am considering Arkansas State. They like that a lot."

A defensive end at Pascagoula (Miss.) Panthers, Caston (6-foot, 220 pounds) recently received an offer from Arkansas State, it was his first offer.

"They talked to me about playing defensive end, and maybe dropping back into a zone for pass coverage,'' he said.

"I liked it there. It seemed really nice to me. Everything was good. I liked the coaches."

He has attended camps at Louisiana, Mississippi State and Ole Miss. He has also made a visit to Jonesboro.

The school I choose will be the one that is the best fit," he said. "It doesn't matter to me if it is close to home or not."

Caston recorded 61 tackles and nine sacks in 2012, helping lead the Panthers to the Class 5A South State title. The Panthers have gone 20-7 the past two seasons.
