Closer race for Calhoun

Jermiecalhounjd200
The second junior day for Rivals100 to watch running back Jermie Calhoun was this past weekend to Texas A&M.
The 6-foot, 210-pounder made the drive from Van, Texas with some friends to College Station. Calhoun had a chance to sit down with Kenith Pope and several other coaches from Texas A&M. It certainly left an impression on Calhoun and has tightened the race for his services.
"I'm just now leaving A&M, it went pretty well," Calhoun said. "I got to talk to the running backs coach and we just talked about everything. All the coaches were really friendly up there and they talked about how they're real close with their players."
Calhoun has said in the past that academics was a high priority. The Texas A&M staff talked about that as well.
"They just said that academics come first over sports," Calhoun said. "They also were really cool about my decision. They told me to take my time and they just wanted me up there to check out the school and get closer to the program."
Oklahoma was the leader going into his visit to Texas A&M. The race appears to be much closer after his visit to his second Big 12 school.
"Right now, it's about even between all the schools right now," Calhoun said. "I'm still keeping my options open."
Calhoun still maintains that his decision isn't too far off in the future. However, another visit is possible upcoming this weekend.
"I might go to Oklahoma this weekend," Calhoun said. "I'm thinking about going back there again for another visit."
Calhoun also holds scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, Kansas State, LSU, Nebraska, and Oklahoma State among the others.
