Los Angeles (Cali.) Cathedral high school wide receiver Jamire Calvin is headed back home and talked with Big Red Report about his trip to Lincoln over the weekend for the Red-White spring game.
“It was the best trip that I have taken so far,” said Calvin. “It was a great experience. I loved it. The facilities, the fans, the coaches, everything made it a great time.
“The city was definitely different than I thought. I figured it would be a ghost town because it was Nebraska, but it wasn’t in the middle of everything. And to see the fans in person it was a lot different. They are great on Twitter, but seeing them is great.”
With two wide receiver commitments in the 2017 class, Nebraska is expected to take two more players. Calvin isn’t feeling rushed.
“There is no rush at all. I have talked to Coach Riley and Coach Dubs (Keith Williams) about it before,” said Calvin. “They are going to wait on me. They said if they have to turn guys down, they will. They want to make sure I get there. So there is no rush at all…it’s a great feeling to know they are wanting me that much.”
Calvin said he will visit Maryland next weekend. A decision could come at anytime, but admits he would still like to take a few other possible visits.
“I need to talk it over with my parents and see what they think,” said Calvin.
Nebraska currently has two California players committed in the 2017 class. Last recruiting cycle the Huskers plucked four from The Golden State. Calvin says the recent uptick in guys making the trip east to Lincoln would make the leap of faith easier.
“It’s a lot easier when you know you have friends going out there,” said Calvin. “It would definitely make me feel more comfortable.”
Calvin has offers from schools like California, Missouri, Penn State, BYU, Washington, Utah, Oregon State, Tennessee, Louisville, Boston College and Fresno State among others.
