Three-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin already holds 27 scholarship offers and he expects to see that total rise this spring.
After talking with Notre Dame assistant coach Mike Denbrock, Calvin, a 5-foot-10, 165-pounder from Cathedral High School in Los Angeles, anticipates one of his newest offers to come from the Irish.
“He said pretty much that they loved me and they loved my film and everything and I’m the true slot receiver that they're looking for and they're pretty much going to offer me when they come down in the spring,” Calvin said. “That’s pretty much going to happen in the spring.”
Calvin visited Notre Dame last fall when the Irish beat Georgia Tech. During that trip he toured campus, learned more about the football program and got to know the Irish coaching staff.
“I liked it a lot,” he said. “There's so much tradition and the atmosphere, I liked everything about it. The coaching staff is a great coaching staff, one of the best in college football.”
Calvin likely won’t make it back to South Bend until fall when he could schedule an official visit with the Irish.
Instead, he’ll focus his attention on spring practice when he expects to see several college coaches on the sidelines at Cathedral.
“A lot of colleges are going to come out after April 15,” he said. “The other schools that I'll also probably get an offer from in the spring are Oregon, TCU, Texas A&M and Michigan State. Those schools are pretty good so they'll probably make their way into my top 10 or top five and get a visit.”
Calvin hopes to begin the decision making process shortly after spring practice concludes.
“I'm trying to figure it out now to narrow down my decision,” he said. “Probably after I get those few schools I'm going to shut down my recruitment and try to start narrowing it down to a top 10 or 12 and try to make a decision from there.”
As a junior, Calvin recorded 41 receptions for 684 yards and scored 12 touchdowns.
