Jacob Callier (Blair Angulo)

Colorado Target Makes Strong Impression

Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco defensive lineman Jacob Callier is having a big senior year and has clearly shown he's among the top players in the state, regardless of position.


Despite their tough 26-21 loss to Mater Dei last Friday, there wasn't a better player on either side of the ball than Braves defensive end Jacob Callier

Bosco used a unique strategy of playing with a three man front, and dropping eight and sometimes even nine players in to coverage to try and slow down the Monarchs high powered passing game. Despite just rushing three, Bosco was still able to pressure the quarterback and a lot of that was due to Caller.

He was in the backfield all game and drew three holding penalties (could have been a few more called as well) and had several hits on the quarterback. We liked Callier a lot as a junior and felt he was one of the most athletic rush ends in the state and he has elevated his game even more this season.

At 6-2, 250 pounds, he's an incredibly strong kid who can play the run and has the speed and athleticism to run down plays from behind or run away from him. He has a nice offer sheet but honestly, Callier is extremely under-recruited for his talent level and should have just about the entire Pac-12 all over him.

You don't see too many players with his combination of strength, athleticism, playmaking skills and motor. This is a kid who competes at a high level every down, is always running to the football and doesn't stay blocked.

Recruiting Update:

Callier has yet to schedule any of his visits but the Arizona WildcatsColorado BuffaloesHawaii Warriors and San Diego State Aztecs are the schools recruiting him hardest. He also told us the Washington Huskies are making a big push and could be close to offering as well.
