The following information was revealed during our interview with Duke Calhoun:
is your season going? "I am in basketball season now. It is going really
good. I am averaging around 24 points a game. Our football season is over."
were your final stats for your football season? "I had 48 catches for 960
yards and 14 TD's. I also returned 3 interceptions for TD's."
your play for the year. "About a B because I was the leader on the team,
and we did not go as far as we would have liked. We had a new QB on the team.
He did well, but I think I did a pretty decent job of leading out team, just not
good enough. We had our moments though."
Been to any recent college
games? "I went to Ole Miss last Saturday to see them play LSU."
anyone come with you? "My mother and dad came with me."
did they think of Ole Miss? "They enjoyed it. They said it was a nice environment
to be around."
What did you think? "I thought it was great. I

the game started and watch the players."
What new did you learn about
Ole Miss during your trip? "This was not my first game of Ole Miss' to go
to. It was senior night, so I got to see all of the receivers who are leaving.

The last time we spoke you had Ole Miss and Memphis at the
top; do you still feel that way? "Memphis is not recruiting me as hard as
Ole Miss. Ole Miss is doing the best job."
Which colleges are calling
you weekly? "Alabama has just started calling me."
What did Alabama
tell you? "They are going to try and get me in for an official visit. They
said they were going to offer me when I come on my visit. They said they wished
they would have recruited me earlier, but they just got in my tapes."
you set up any visits yet? "No sir, not yet."
Are Kansas and
Auburn still calling you? "No, it is like they stopped calling, but coach
said it would pick up. Like Alabama, they never called until now. It is getting
