Duke Calhoun meets OC from Ole Miss

Duke Calhoun (WR, Memphis, TN) - Tennessee's top receiver prospect had a visitor come by his school Wednesday afternoon.

"Coach Werner (Ole Miss' offensive coordinator) is sitting right next to me right now."

Has Duke ever met the new Ole Miss offensive coordinator?

"No, this is the first time I have seen him in person, but we have talked on the phone a few times."

And what are Duke's impressions of Coach Werner?

"He is pretty funny, fun to talk to. So far, so good."

Reports came out that Duke was now leaning towards Memphis. We did not want to put Duke in an imposition and have him talk about other schools in front of the Ole Miss assistant coach, so we simply asked him to give us a yes or no answer.

"No, it's about even."

We asked Duke if it was about even with the remaining schools on his list (Memphis, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Arkansas) and he replied,

"No, between Memphis and Ole Miss."

This is the last week where the coaches will be able to make inhome visits with the prospects, so just which colleges have come by to see Duke this week and who else is scheduled to come in?

"The Memphis coaches were at my basketball game last night. Ole Miss is here today. Tennessee and Arkansas are coming by on Thursday."

Speaking of basketball, Duke has led his team to a 21-1 start and is averaging over 17 points, 10 rebounds, 4 steals, and 3 assists per game. Raleigh Egypt is now ranked #2 in the state of Tennessee and #23 in the country.

But it is football where Duke will use his talents on the next level, and right now, this looks to be a two way battle between Memphis and Ole Miss. Calhoun has also visited Tennessee, Tennessee State, and he will conclude his official visit tour this weekend with a stop to the University of Arkansas.

Duke carries a Duke carries a 4.0 GPA / 24 ACT.
