Jamire Calvin in holding pattern

Four-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin has three official visits left to schedule but that probably won’t happen until after his season ends. That could make getting to South Bend a challenge.

Four-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin has already taken official visits to Nebraska and Oregon State, but it could be a while before he schedules the final three trips.

Calvin, a 5-foot-10, 170-pounder from Los Angeles, has helped lead Cathedral High School to a perfect regular season and a win in the first round of the playoffs last Friday. He likely won’t schedule any other visits until his season comes to an end.

“It's kind of on hold with the playoffs,” Calvin said. “There's a lot going on so I'm just waiting right now.”

A visit to Notre Dame was in the works earlier this fall but that fell through. Calvin said he hopes to make his way to South Bend before making his final decision, although that likely leaves The Echoes weekend on Dec. 9-11 as the best shot at seeing South Bend.

“It will be rescheduled,” he said. “I don't know when yet but it will be. The other two, I don't know yet but it will be any of the schools in my top eight.”

If Calvin makes that trip, look for his cousin, four-star defensive end Hunter Echols, to join him.

“I’m sure if I visit he’ll probably visit with me,” Calvin said.

Echols committed to USC in August but has remained in touch with the Irish. He also took an official visit to Oklahoma last weekend.

Calvin also is considering Alabama, Ole Miss, UCLA and Arizona State.

He recorded seven catches for 109 yards and two scores in a 34-17 win over Hart in Friday’s playoff opener and he now has 73 receptions for 1,179 yards and 13 scores in 11 games this season.

Notre Dame coach Mike Denbrock has paid close attention to Calvin’s success and has urged the standout pass catcher to make his way to South Bend.

“I hear from him every couple of days,” Calvin said. “He really wants me to get out there and visit and tells me how I'm a play maker and how they need that, stuff like that.”

Calvin expects to make his college choice public at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January.
