Bryn Mawr (Pa.) Harriton defensive tackle Callahan Bright has narrowed down his list of schools. The 6-foot-2, 315-pounder has already taken one official visit and has another one set. So who is still in the mix?
"I took an official visit to Purdue already and was hosted by my brother, Eugene," said Bright, ranked as the nation's No. 5 player overall. "I had a good time and really liked the school. I know a little more about Purdue than others because of my brother and having him there is an advantage, but it won't be a decision maker for me. I need to go where I can fit the best."
Bright has a second official visit already set.
"I'm going to Texas A&M on Dec. 10," said Bright. "I haven't set up any visits beyond that, but I will be taking an unofficial visit to West Virginia either this upcoming weekend or the next if I can make it. I also plan on setting officials to Florida State, Miami and Southern Cal. I am going to announce my decision at halftime of the U.S. Army All American Game in mid-January, so my officials will be in December and the first weekend of January."
Bright has eliminated a few schools that had been on his list for awhile.
"LSU, Nebraska and Oklahoma are out," he said. "I had to eliminate some teams to get to five visits and those were the ones."
Bright's team is a woeful 0-7, but he's not discouraged.
"We'll win the rest," he said. "I have five sacks this season and I've been pretty much double teams and triple teamed. I've played some fullback on offense and have a touchdown run of 18 yards."
Does Bright have a leader?
"No, I need to take my visits," he said. "That will be the key."
