Scout.com Rating: Four-star
Scout.com Rank: No. 7 Outside Linebacker
Hometown: Russellville High School Russellville, Ala.
Projected Position: Outside Linebacker
<>Stats: Calloway spent the majority of the 2010 season on the offensive side of the ball. He rushed for 2,100 yards with 32 touchdowns. He rushed for more than 100 yards in 11-of-13 games including a 172 yard performance in his final high school game against Hartselle in the quarterfinals of the state playoffs.
Commit Date: 2/2/2011
Recruiting Competition: Auburn
Why Alabama: "Alabama has said I can play wherever I want to play, but I know they will put me where I need to be. That's fine with me. It's a privilege for me to have a scholarship to play at their school. I am going to play ball for them and contribute to the team.
"I am definitely going to give them a look at everything I can do. Wherever they think I fit in the program I will play. I believe I will be able to play in my first year on defense though. The offensive depth is pretty crazy, but I think I can get playing time on defense."
Coach Quotes (former Russellville Head Coach Doug Goodwin): "Brent is a player with tremendous God-given talent. He's big, fast, and strong. If you name it athletically, he can do it.
When he practiced with us his freshman year, you could already see flashes of brilliance. Then he rushed for 1,400 yards as a sophomore, 1,400 yards as a junior, and this season is closing in on 2000.
"I use him at running back because it's a position where we're pretty thin. We use him on defense at outside linebacker. Alabama offered him as a linebacker, but has told him they'll give him a shot at running back if he wants it. At running back he's strong enough to run over you and fast enough to run away from you.
"He's done a good job focusing on helping this team win and not worrying about what awaits him down the road. Brent has a big personality. He's a cut-up, always happy. He's provided us with good senior leadership and is an outstanding teammate."
Andrew Bone says: Calloway is one of the most naturally gifted athletes in the country. He has excellent size and speed. He can play on either side of the ball. Calloway runs with power and does a great job following his blocks as a running back. Calloway has good instincts and flies to the football on defense.
