Marquez Callaway Update

2016 Scout top 100 athlete gives a little insight on his recruitment

If Marquez Callaway lived in a perfect world, he'd play both football and basketball in college.

The 6-foot-3, 180 pound Scout top 100 athlete plays both for Warner Robins High School. But with schools like Tennessee, FSU, Georgia and Florida hot on the trail for him to play football, it looks like his future will be on grass, no the hardcourt.

But where?

The No. 2 athlete in the South on Scout.com, Callaway likes to keep to himself about his pending commitment. He rattled off the list of SEC and ACC schools who actively recruit and contact him but didn't suggest or name any leaders.

Georgia was the first school to offer Callaway, and he was very high on Mark Richt, Jeremy Pruitt and his area recruiter John Lilly.

Callaway was most recently in Athens for the Georgia-Kentucky basketball game in early March.

While he is being recruited at both receiver and in the secondary, Callaway said he would like to play receiver in college.

With offers coming from all over the Southeast (most recently Miami adding itself to the list), Callaway said that distance is of no consequence to him when deciding where he'll commit.

Though he is pretty quiet about the process and did not list any leaders in his recruitment, Callaway admits that his favorite part of the recruiting process has been all the food — desserts being his weakness. And while it's no indication of things to come, he said that Tennessee is in the lead as far as best food.
