A Q&A With Kaleb Eulls and Coach Williams

Yazoo County (MS) High School DE/QB Kaleb Eulls, a member of the class of 2010, and his head coach Matt Williams talked about the start of Eulls recruitment.

When you first see Kaleb Eulls you can understand why his teammates have given him a very unique nickname.

"My teammates call me the freak," said Kaleb, with a laugh.

He's 6-4, weighs 245 pounds and has muscles on top of muscles. Add in the fact that he runs a 4.7 forty and plays defensive end, quarterback and punts and you understand.

And his teammates aren't the only ones that have taken notice of this very gifted athlete.

"(Mississippi) State, Southern (Miss), Alabama, Tennessee, Ole Miss are the ones who have started off with him," said Yazoo County High School head football coach Matt  Williams. "They poke their head in (the school) and see him walk the halls and then ask for information on him."

As of now, no coach has extended a scholarship offer but that could very well change in the not too distant future.

"Nobody has offered him yet, but (Mississippi State assistant) Coach (Tony) Hughes, when he was at Southern. talked about offering him," said Matt.

It's obvious Kaleb has the physical attributes you want in an athlete, but there's more to this youngster than his impressive physical stature.

"I know coach always say this, but his work ethic and his character are unbelievable," said Matt. "When he goes into the weight room he's all business. He's the same way on the practice field. And when you are a 3.3 student in the class room, that should tell you something about him. He just puts it into another gear."

As for which colleges Kaleb prefers, he's still very much open.

"I like Southern Miss, Mississippi State, Alabama ... and there are a lot more, but I can't name them (all) because it's kind of early," said Kaleb, who told me he grew up a fan of Southern Miss.

Kaleb obviously wants to play football on the next level, but he also understands the importance of getting a college education.

"I'm going to look at the academics," said the 17-year-old. "Academic-wise, my favorite subject is math, and I want to do something dealing with math."
