Kalvin Bailey finished up his high school career in fine fashion. He had 138 yards and 3 touchdowns in the Florida 4A championship for Armwood High. I just spoke with Kalvin's high school coach, Sean Callahan, to ask about the latest on Kalvin and to see where Georgia Tech stands.

"I'm hoping Coach Brian Jean-Mary; I think he's the RB coach or the LB coach. He hasn't called me in a week or so, so I'm wondering if they're still recruiting him. I'm assuming they are, but you never know," said Callahan. "Because Kalvin doesn't have a phone, doesn't have a cell phone, doesn't have a home phone, recruiting has just been a challenge. Brian usually calls me, but I haven't heard from him in well over a week. He usually calls me weekly so I'm wondering if anything has changed."

In the meantime, coach says, "Kalvin's in Iowa this weekend." Besides that being Kalvin's first official visit, where else might he go? "Miami, Nebraska, Southern Cal, and Georgia Tech were the ones he thinks he's going to take visits to but I doubt he visits them all," said Callahan.

Does Kalvin have a favorite at this point? "I think Georgia Tech is up there. Kalvin's just a kid who needs to see some places and make up his mind. I don't think Kalvin is a true fullback. I think he's more a running back. So he's intelligent enough to see what people have as far as their offenses are concerned and how he'll fit in with his skills. He's one of those guys where I don't have to say a lot; he does all of the right things."

With the numbers he put up in the championship game, he must be able to be a solid college running back, right? "Well, for us he plays fullback. But we're triple option, so he gets the ball a lot that way. Even though he's a big strong guy, his forte is not blocking. That would probably be his weakest area. I don't see him being a fullback on the college level that has to block every down. He's got a little wiggle in his hips, he can run people over and he can run around people a little bit too."

Well keep you updated with the latest on Kalvin Bailey as we learn more.
