Jamire Calvin eyes Notre Dame visit

Three-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin hopes to visit Notre Dame before the start of his senior season. He definitely plans to make an official visit to South Bend this fall before making his college choice.

Three-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin landed a scholarship offer from Notre Dame during the spring evaluation period and hopes to visit the school in the near future.

“I was thinking about visiting before the season started,” said Calvin, a 5-foot-10, 165-pounder from Cathedral High School in Los Angeles. “It will probably be in the next few weeks if I were to go but nothing is set yet. I'm for sure going to take an official there.”

That official visit will take place either on Sept. 17 when the Irish host Michigan State or on Oct. 15 when Stanford plays in Notre Dame Stadium.

Calvin could potentially make that trip with his high school teammate Hunter Echols, a four-star defensive end who considers Notre Dame as a slight leader over USC. Echols de-committed from UCLA last week and plans to announce his next commitment during the all-star game season in January.

Calvin has two other tentative visits scheduled and hopes to add two more to use all five of his officials before making his college choice.

“The only two I have for sure are Nebraska and Alabama,” he said. “I'm looking into possibly Arizona State and maybe Oregon State. I'm still trying to figure it out.”

He used the spring and summer to visit several of the schools that have offered a scholarship.

“I got out to see a few schools,” he said. “It has helped my decision a lot but I want to take all my officials first before I make a decision.”

For now, Calvin is focused on preparing for his senior season.

Practice starts next week and Cathedral’s first game is scheduled for Aug. 26.

Calvin has a couple of goals he hopes to achieve in his final year of high school ball.

“I just want to break the receiving record at my school,” he said. “That's the plan. It's 1,400 (yards) or something, so I'm trying to go for 1,500. I hold the punt return record there so I'm trying to break my own record.”

Scout.com ranks Calvin as the 64th best wide receiver in the nation.
