Football players don't come much more laid back than Bryn Mawr (Pa.) Harriton defensive tackle Callahan Bright. With 40+ scholarship offers and his season just a month away, Bright is still not worried about the recruiting process.
"I'm just chillin'" said Bright, a 6-foot-2, 315-pounder who is ranked as the No. 3 defensive tackle in the country and No. 20 overall. "I don't have any official visits set up or anything, I'm actually trying to forget about recruiting and enjoy the summer."
Bright's team begins practice on Aug. 16 and after that he'll be in football mode.
"That's when I get fired up," he said. "I want to take a couple of official visits during the season and a few more after the season and decide near the end of the process. I'm in no hurry."
Bright did confirm his favorite schools.
"Miami, LSU, Florida State, Oklahoma, Southern Cal, Texas A&M and Nebraska are my favorites," he said. "I still think I want to head down south to play football, that's where the best football is played. No one really leads, but I've always been a huge Miami fan."
And Bright has heard the inevitable comparisons to a former Hurricane.
"Yeah, people say I remind them of Warren Sapp, which is awesome," he said. "He's a great player."
Bright, who had 14 sacks as a junior, hasn't been anywhere this summer.
"I did the NIKE Camp at Virginia and the Elite College Combine in New Jersey and that's been it pretty much," he said. "I'll visit some schools once football starts again."
Bright was named the Defensive MVP of the Elite College Combine in May.
