Scout.com evaluation: Kalem transferred from D'Iberville to St. Martin before the start of his junior season and didn't disappoint. He totaled 1, 147 yards of offense. On defense he picked off three passes. The All-State selection was used mostly on offense last season. He caught 44 passes for 815 yards and 11 touchdowns.

He uses his big body to shield defenders when the ball is in the air, but what makes him so effective is his ability to make hard cuts to make people miss. This allows him to rack up YAC (yards after catch) yards. He's explosive but still needs to work on his overall speed.

Kalem is set to attend the Nike Regionals in New Orleans and it will be interesting to see how he fares. We believe he'll be a standout and the offers will start flowing his way.
