Taggart Makes An Impression On 2015 WR

Coconut Creek (Fla.) Ridley High School wide receiver, Calvin Ridley, currently sits at five offers. After a strong stellar start in his junior year, Ridley's interest from collegiate coaches has been soaring. For the latest, USFNation.com caught up with the gifted pass catcher for the latest.

After a sensational start for Coconut Creek (Fla.) Monarch High School, 6-foot-2, 185-pound junior, Calvin Ridley, has been the go-to-guy for the Knights so far in 2013. In his last contest against Sunrise (Fla.) Piper High, Ridley led all players with three receptions for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

"So far, we've been doing well, we're 4-0," Ridley said. "Our offense is doing very well and our defense is doing their thing. So far, I have 574 yards on 18 catches and six touchdowns."

The stellar play that Ridley has catered to his team has earned him five offers so far and soaring interest from several other programs throughout the nation.

"Right now, I have offers from West Virginia, South Florida, Florida Atlantic, Marshall and Cincinnati," Ridley said. "Miami is showing me a decent amount of interest as well. That's all I really know."

As for South Florida, Bulls head man, Willie Taggart, has left a lasting impression on the young pass catcher as of late.

"I like their head coach a lot, Coach Taggart," Ridley said. "He's very cool. I've seen their facilities, I've tried on their jerseys and I met some of their players. It's very cool up there and they like me a lot."

The Bulls have a feather in their cap when it comes down to the factors Ridley will consider when he selects his college destination.

"It will be my relationship with the coaching staff and distance," Ridley said. "Maybe, I'm not sure right now, but maybe, yeah (staying in state)."

As for a decision, the Monarch star is in no hurry to choice his future destination.

"No, I don't have an idea right now."

Ridley has no visits planned for the near future.
