Calvin ‘blessed' to Receive First Offer

Frisco (Texas) Centennial corner Cydney Calvin received his first offer and hours later set up his official visit to another school. Calvin talks with about his big day.

Frisco (Texas) Centennial High corner Cydney Calvin picked up his first offer and received another in-home visit Monday.

The talented athlete was offered by Wake Forest. First year secondary coach Tim Duffie called Calvin on behalf of the Demon Deacon program and offered the 6'0 wide out.

"I feel so blessed. Very blessed. It's like my stress has been lifted off," said Calvin. "The weight is off now. I feel blessed to know I'll be able to go to school for free."

Calvin was excited that Wake Forest was a place he could potentially call home.

"Hopefully more offers will continue to come, but I'm excited that Wake Forest may be a place I can call home," Calvin said who will visit the Demon Deacons on January 18.

"Coach Duffie really wants to coach me and build a relationship with me. That's a great feeling and I think I'll really like that," Calvin continued.

The speedy wide out also holds an offer from Division II Emporia State, but he said Wake Forest has been the school keeping in constant contact.

"I've been talking to Iowa, Wake Forest, and New Mexico, but Wake has been the one that's really on me. Coach Duffie sent me a message today on Facebook saying Go Deacs, and they also reach out to my mom and my coaches."

The newest school to court the Frisco native is New Mexico. Calvin said he first made contact with the Lobos a week ago.

"Last week my quarterback called me and told me to come up to the school where I met the New Mexico coach," Calvin said. "He got my transcript and said he'd be coming to visit me at my house. They're thinking about offering."

On Monday night, coach Jason Lenzmeier, a Frisco native on the New Mexico staff, visited Calvin in his home.

"He said they are really really interested in me and was giving me info about my official visit on January 11th. He also was saying that they really wanted me to come there and play for them," Calvin said.

"Hopefully more offers will come my way, but right now I feel so blessed."
