BRANDON CALEB, WR, 6'1, 192, 4.45, FORK UNION (FORK UNION MILITARY ACADEMY), VA:
Long before Brandon Caleb went to the San Antonio Scout Network Combine, he was a well-known name among national juniors. Brandon is a four-year starter at a very good football program starting at running back his freshman year before moving to wide receiver as a sophomore. A year ago, Caleb caught 15 passes for 485 yards and six touchdowns for a team that loves to run the football.
"We are a very good running football team that doesn't really throw the ball much," said Caleb. "My size coming off the ball is an advantage, and I have good speed that can usually take my man in any one-on-one situation."
Caleb can bench 210 pounds and he has a 36-inch vertical jump. Before his sophomore year, Caleb went to the Michigan camp and he will go back this year. He also plans to go to then Nike camp in Blacksburg, Va.
Caleb also starts in basketball (10 ppg, 12 rpg) and in track he participates in the triple jump (44 ft), long jump (22'7) and 300 high hurdles.
Caleb has been talking to coaches off and on, but he has yet to receiver any offers. He is trying to put together he list of schools that he would be most interested in, and he has been told by a number of colleges that offers are on the way.
"At this point I am wide open, but I have a number of schools that I am looking at," said Caleb. "I like Oklahoma, Nebraska, Michigan and Florida. I would say Michigan is my favorite because I went to camp there, but that is not set about where I am going. I have a high interest in Oklahoma. Oklahoma wins a lot of games and I want to be around a winning program."
Caleb has qualified.
