Nebraska could potentially land six to eight players from the state of California in the class of 2017 and Cathedral high school (Los Angeles) wide out Jamire Calvin would be near the top of the potential list.
Calvin, who recently announced he would be visiting Nebraska during the Red-White game, has offers from schools like California, Missouri, Penn State, BYU, Washington, Utah, Oregon State, Tennessee, Louisville, Boston College and Fresno State among others.
“I really like the coaches the most at this point,” said Calvin. “The players, atmosphere and fan base stand out.”
Calvin was one California prospect who immediately responded to the announcement of Keyshawn Johnson Jr. last week.
“It says a lot,” said Calvin. “All the dudes that are out there already recruit hard. With Keyshawn committing, it makes it easier for us Cali kids to go up there.”
With two commitments already in the bag at his position, Nebraska wide receiver coach Keith Williams is still in on a handful of prospects in the 2017 class.
“I love him,” said Calvin. “I feel like I've known him my whole life. He’s the best receiver coach in college in my opinion. A real technician and a perfectionist. He truly knows how to get the best out of his players.”
Calvin reports nearly 1,000 receiving yards in 2015. He scored 17 touchdowns and had 530 punt return yards.
