"Jalen Harvey and I are both coming up with our dads on April 20th for (Washington's) Spring Game," Calhoun told Dawgman.com. "We both really like them a lot and we wanted to see what their school and program had to offer.
"Coach (Tosh) Lupoi is the coach that is recruiting us and he's filled us in on what they are doing and what they have to offer, but we wanted to see it for ourselves."
Calhoun is one of the top linebackers on the West Coast and has offers from schools across the country, but he's started to think about who is top schools are.
"I'd say, at least right now, my favorite school is UCLA and then it probably goes USC and then Washington is like third or fourth," Calhoun noted. "If Miami offers, they will be up there, probably third, and then I'm not really sure, but that's a good idea of who my top four are right now."
Calhoun said one of the reasons the Huskies are up near the top is the confidence they display when they talk to him.
"They have a swagger about them that is pretty cool," Calhoun said. "They are a strong program and they are really building for the future there and they want championships. One thing I get from them when I talk to them is their confidence in what they are doing and where they are going. They said they won't settle for anything but being the best and they definitely have that confidence you like as a player."
At 6'0 and weighing 205 pounds, Calhoun isn't the biggest prospect out there, but what he might lack in ideal size he makes up for in instincts, athleticism and physicality.
"Most schools like me as a hybrid-type of outside linebacker and safety," Calhoun said. "Cal likes me as a strong safety or rover and UCLA likes me inside. USC also likes me as a safety/rover and I'm pretty sure that's where Washington likes me too.
"I love to play the game and hit people. I feel very comfortable in space and when I read the play I go and make the tackle," Calhoun noted.
As far as a decision is concerned, Calhoun said he's not close to even thinking about when he will make a commitment, but said he hopes to take his official visits before letting coaches know where he will play his college ball.
