Seattle Prep (WA) cornerback Tere Calloway has had a very busy summer gathering information on different schools recruiting him, helping our teammates in their recruitment, and of course, preparing for his final season in a high school uniform.
And after all of the consideration towards schools that have recruited him, Calloway has finally narrowed his list down to four.
"Right now my top schools are SMU, Southern Miss, Nevada and Memphis," he said.
Calloway, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound speedster out of Seattle, has put thoughtful consideration into his recruitment and plans to announce his decision this winter.
"I plan to make it around December." he said, "As of right now, I'm trying to just take all my officials and get a feel for all the schools."
When asked about his relationship with fellow Washington prospect Kolney Cassel, Calloway had nothing but good things to say about the Mustang quarterback commit and gave him a lot of credit for his own interest in SMU, along with long time friend Tatum Taylor.
"Well me and him (Cassel) are good friends. He got me the offer to SMU. He made sure the coaches saw my film, and it would be great to go down and play with him," Calloway said. "And then when I seriously started considering SMU, I sent SMU Tatum Taylor's film because he's my best friend."
Calloway expanded on the idea of going to college with his good friend Taylor and said it would be a great experience.
"We became real serious about that [going to college together] and most of our top schools are the same," he said. "We probably have seven common offers between the both of us."
Calloway expects to visit SMU sometime in November with Taylor and is very excited to be on Hilltop during the season.
"I'm in talks right now to come down during the season for an official," Calloway said. "I was told they usually don't do that during the season, but me and Tatum are coming down together so I think we might take an official in November."
And although his recruitment has taken up much of his time and focus, Calloway is looking forward to a successful season in his final campaign as a high school football star.
"I'm expecting that we improve on last season," he said. "We made the state tournament last year now we have confidence offensively and defensively so hopefully we can compete for the state title, which we haven't done since the 60's."
