Lots of Offers for Wisconsin RB

Penn State has been in contact with Brian Calhoun, a top RB prospect with blazing speed and impressive ability.

Name: Brian Calhoun
Position: RB
Height: 5'10"
Weight: 191 pounds
40-yard dash: 4.3
School: Oak Creek High, Oak Creek, Wisconsin

Brian Calhoun has been receiving a ton of attention from schools all across the country.

"Right now, I have probably close to 30 offers," Brian said.

His senior season ended last weekend with a loss in the third round of the playoffs.  Now, Brian can concentrate on the recruiting process, and begin taking his official visits.

"November 30 I have a visit to Purdue. That's all I have set up so far.  Most likely, the other couple visits will be Wisconsin, Iowa and Northwestern.

"I've kind of narrowed it down to those, but I'm still looking at other schools.  I'm still looking at Colorado, Nebraska, and some others, but those are kind of the main 4 right now."

"Those schools are just where I feel most comfortable with the coaches, the campuses, playing time and all that stuff.  I've been to all 4 of them."

Penn State, who absolutely needs to sign a few top RB prospects this year, began contacting Brian in September.  According to Brian, Penn State has offered him a scholarship.

"I actually kept in touch with Penn State a lot.  I guess it's kind of slowed down a little bit.  I talked to them a couple of times in September, but I haven't talked to them in probably about a month and a half.  At that time, I was still wide open.  They still send me mail, but I just haven't talked to them on the phone recently.

"I'm definitely interested in Penn State.  Obviously, they have Joe Paterno and that says it all right there.  I think it's definitely a program that I fit good in."

Brian is being recruited mostly as a RB, but he has the ability to play other positions as well.

"Most schools say that if it doesn't work out at RB, I can switch to receiver.  And, if by chance, it doesn't work at receiver, I'll switch to a defensive back."

He estimates that he will make a final decision in January.
