Mike Calvin Profile
"I'm really looking forward to my visit," Calvin said. "I know that Oregon is still a great team. They had a tough game against California and lost some momentum," Calvin said. "They actually remind me a little of my high school team. I know we're a good team, but we just can't seem to get things going."
Although Calvin was not at the Cal/Oregon game in person, he says he was leaning towards Cal to win that match up. "I really like both teams, but DeSean Jackson and Robert Jordan (from Cal) are my favorite receivers in college football, so I was rooting for them."
Calvin, however, did attend the Cal/Washington game last weekend (October 21). "That last play in regulation by Washington was crazy," Calvin said. "That was a great game."
He says that the Bears are recruiting him the hardest. "They check in with me all the time," Calvin said. "They keep me updated about their passing stats and how the receivers are doing. I really like talking to coach Jeff Tedford. He's a nice guy and my mom likes him too. He's just a real guy."
Calvin favors Cal slightly over Oregon, USC, UCLA and Utah and all but the Trojans and Bruins have offered. "UCLA wide receiver coach (D.J. McCarthy) called me today and said they want to trip me," Calvin said. "I figure if they want to offer me a visit, that they'll probably offer me a scholarship.
"USC told me the same thing. Their o-line coach (Pat Ruel) told me to save a visit date for them. He says that I'm still number two on their board and that they like my size and speed. They like how I attack the ball."
Calvin has caught 18 balls for over 400 yards and seven touchdowns. Defensively, he has over 40 tackles and four interceptions. His team is currently 3-4 and suffered a 48-6 loss last week to Bishop O'Dowd.
"I know that there was some USC coaches at that game," Calvin said. "A lot of coaches have been coming to my game and I don't really feel any extra pressure. It is in the back of my head, but I know what I have to do and I just try to play the game."
He reports a 2.9 core GPA and an 1150 SAT.
