Calloway take on all comers

Washington will host arguably the top corner prospect in the state tomorrow when Seattle Prep's Tere Calloway is on campus. caught up with the talented prospect and he filled us in on which schools are showing him the most interest as well as what makes him tick...

"I love to compete, that's what I do," Calloway told recently. "I've been working with he best wideouts I can find -- Sammie Long, Marquin Russell -- all of those guys, just trying to improve my game and get better every day."

Calloway likes to compete so much he also was a beast on offense for the Panthers, carrying the ball 109 times for 1,179 yards and 20 touchdowns but it was his work at corner that saw him put up the biggest numbers -- 92 tackles, 10 passes defensed and two forced fumbles.

"I felt like I had a great season, but I feel like I have more in me," Calloway said. "I'm working a lot on my technique, my footwork. I work out with Parker Mays and Tatum Taylor a lot too, so overall I'm just trying to find the best competition I can go against on a daily basis right now."

Calloway is still waiting on his first offer, but he is getting heavy interest from several schools including Washington which he plans to unofficially visit later today.

"I had been talking with coach (Joel) Thomas about visiting, but since Signing Day (February 1st) he's been out of town," Calloway noted. "I finally got it set up to go see them, so I'm going to go up and do that (Tuesday).

"I like the coaches there a lot. I really have respect for coach (Steve) Sarkisian and the program they have there, but I want to get up there and meet with the coaches a little bit and get to know them a lot better."

In addition to the attention from Washington, Calloway is also hearing from Washington State, Oregon, Purdue, North Carolina, Penn State, Indiana, California, Missouri, UCLA and Utah.

"I got invited to Washington State's Junior Day (Feb 25th), so I'm going to head over for that and I'm planning to go to camp at UCLA and Utah right now," Calloway said. "My schedule is going to be busy, but I can get out to see different schools and also work out against other top players, so that will be a good experience for me."

Calloway is unsure if he will run track this spring, contemplating just working on his football skills instead, but he said even if he does run track he'll be lifting and working on the finer points of his game on the gridiron as well.

We will have more from Calloway in the near future after his unofficial visits to the programs he's planning to see this month and we will update news as it happens.
