On the Radar

Scout.com three-star wide receiver Michael Calvin (6-2, 195, 4.5) from San Leandro (Calif.) will be attending the California/Oregon game at Cal this weekend and those are two of his favorite schools. The Bears have a slight edge over the Ducks, Utah, UCLA and USC, although neither of the Los Angeles schools have offered yet.

"I only favor Cal right now because I've been there," Calvin said. "As for the game, I think it'll be great. They are both really strong teams. Cal probably has an advantage because they are playing at home and their crowd will be behind them."

Calvin will be visiting Oregon on October 28 and says the Ducks are recruiting him the hardest. "That visit will be very important," Calvin said. "I think it will answer a lot of questions for me. They've been recruiting me hard recently and I've been really impressed by them this season. I really want to take my visit and see what all the coaches are like and check out how the atmosphere is and how their practices are run."

He says he already has a great relationship with Oregon defensive coordinator Nick Aliotti. "He calls me a lot and tells me how much Oregon loves me," Calvin said. "He says that I'm number one on their radar and that I could have a great future at Oregon."

One thing that Calvin likes most about Oregon is their offense. "They throw the ball a lot," Calvin said. "They run a spread offense and really air it out. That's exactly what a wide receiver looks for."

Although neither UCLA or USC have offered Calvin, he says that both are still recruiting him. "I still hear from both of them," Calvin said. "UCLA called me about two weeks ago and I got a message from USC."

His team is currently 2-2, but Calvin only has seven receptions for about 200 yards. "We don't throw the ball at all," Calvin said. "In the last three games I only caught one pass. My coach is trying to get the ball in my hands more."

On defense Calvin has been much more effective gaining 25 tackles, two fumbles caused and one interception.

He reports a 2.9 core GPA and a 1150 SAT.
