JUNE 15, 2009. PREP STAR

ALEON CALHOUN, OL, 6-7, 315, 5.1, NAVASOTA

 

Aleon has six offers and has four favorites right now, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Texas A&M and Baylor

 

“I’m going to take my official visits to Oklahoma, Nebraska and Baylor. The other two I don’t know yet.” Calhoun said

 

Number One On The Board

 

“I really don’t know much about Nebraska,” says Calhoun, “The coaches tell me about winning and the program. Nebraska said I’m their number guy on the board for tackles. Coach Beck is my recruiter he’s a pretty cool guy.”

 

Baylor Recruiting The Hardest

 

“I’ve been to Baylor several times. Actually when I was a kid I played at Baylor’s gym for basketball. I have friends of mine that go there and they like it. Baylor is recruiting me the hardest showing a lot of interest in me.” Calhoun said

 

“I like Waco,” Calhoun said, “I haven’t been up there recently. One of my team mates said Baylor have improved their stadium and new facilities. So I want to go up there and see them.”

 

“Oklahoma has great program sports wise and good academics. They are a winning program.” Calhoun has briefly

 

A&M Might Be The Leader

 

“I went to Texas A&M junior days, they showed me around. How the athletes routine goes. I like it there the campus is very nice.”

 

“Texas A&M is a family orientated school. It’s close to home. I basically know every athlete there and they know me. I’ve been to some A&M basketball games last year.” Calhoun added

 

“It doesn’t matter where I play, right now one of the best schools for me is A&M, but anything goes. I’m leaning towards A&M somewhat.” Calhoun said

“I haven’t set up any visits or anything,” Aleon Calhoun said. “Once I get home I don’t really feel like dealing with recruiting. I think we’ll be going to state and I’m pretty busy with my team right now.” Calhoun says he grew up following Texas A&M and the Aggies are recruiting him the hardest. “They are very family-oriented. I feel at home there. I love how wired up it is during the..."

What the hell??? This is supposed to be our #1 guy at OT & Texas A&M's coaches are recruiting him harder than our coaches? F$%^ing bullsh1t

You can only do so much for a kid who pretty much has his heart set on aTm unfortunately. I'm sure Beck is still in touch and after he makes a visit, it's all but done for for aTm as I don't think they can compete with us. We'll see how it goes though.

we all know our recruiting is jacked up...pretending it isn't and making excuses is useless...this issue obviously has not been addressed by the coaches or they just don't know how to make it any better.

Honestly, i don't think we are in any position to say what is going. The visits by Reece and Wright came completely out of left field.

 

I get the impression even the recruiting services are very much in the dark about our recruiting. Whatever is going on, good or bad, only the coaches seem to know.

Maybe he will be one of the visitors for the Big XII Title game that Rivals and Scout insinuate NU will have visitors for?

Can we have official visitors for a game that isn't on campus? Or are these unofficial visits? Or will they be in Lincoln?

Not sure how this works actually, it was being discussed in another thread. I just know that stories of visits to neutral site games always come up so it happens, just not sure how it is handled. Maybe they are unofficial?

They would have to be unofficials. They wouldn't get to do 99% of the things they would normally do on an official like visiting the academic and athletic facilities, visit with the counsler, walk around campus etc. They are probably just going to the game to get a look at NU and that's it.

In the past, Aleon Calhoun has listed both Texas A&M and Arkansas as his leader, but now he says it’s a three-way tie, including Baylor. “No one stands out,” Calhoun said. “There’s something about every one of them that I like.” He denies any time frame for making a decision. “It ain’t gonna be too long. But I don’t know when. I guess it could be tomorrow or next month. I’m not sure..."

“I’m trying to qualify and I know I’m pretty close,” Aleon Calhoun said. “Besides my grades, I was thinking about juco to get more exposure and depth so that when I get D-1, I’ll be rollin’ and can make a difference.” Calhoun says he plans on visiting Navarro Junior College in Corsicana, Texas this month.

This is the perfect example why people need to start chilling out regarding this Staff and recruiting. You want to know why the staff cooled on a stud OT in Texas? Because he can't get himself qualified so why waste your time and effort on him when you have comparable or better targets, i.e. Moudy and Simek, to try go get.

You're wasting your time. Nobody wants to hear about reason when rumor and innuendo make it more dramatic.

Doesn't mean he qualified, remember David Whitmore and David Grant?

LOL that made me realize we have had terrible recruting luck with guys named David. Hopefully Lavonte makes his way to campus... <_<

Well the good news is I guess that it just seems to limited to players who have a FIRST name of David, so I think Lavonte should be good to go.
