"I actually had a very tough decision between LSU and N.C. State, and a lot of other schools," Calhoun told the Post. "But with N.C. State, I liked the environment and it's not too far from home. Also, I'll be able to play football."
"I like the fact the track program is in a building process. When I get there, I plan on making the program better."
Calhoun was also considering Ohio State and Clemson. Calhoun was recently named Most Valuable Male Athlete at the Draper Invitational, where he won the 200 (22.22) and 400 (49.03).
On the gridiron, he played linebacker and tailback for Wilson High School. As a senior the 6-foot-1, 190-pounder reportedly totaled 68 tackles and 15 sacks from his outside linebacker position.
