Early favorite for Calhoun

Derik Calhoun has a lot of time left in the recruiting process and the 2014 linebacker from El Cerrito, Calif., could land many more offers but one Pac-12 school is sticking out a little more than others.
"It's kind of too hard to tell so far but the team that's really sticking out to me so far is UCLA," Calhoun said.
"I really like their coaches, the way they're building the team back up and they used to be really good back then. They started slacking but they're building it back up."

UCLA, Utah and Washington have offered the 6-foot, 215-pound outside linebacker who's planning to upload his junior season highlight film to the Internet soon. Once college coaches see that then more offers could be on the way.
"My final film is done already and I'm getting it this week," Calhoun said. "I'm going to put it on YouTube and all that stuff."
There is already a lot of interest from many teams including two of the biggest heavyweights in the Pac-12. Hearing more especially from those two coaching staffs could be especially intriguing.
"It's been pretty good," Calhoun said.
"Before our last game, USC and Oregon came along with some other coaches and they couldn't say a whole lot to us but they were talking about how they heard about us and how they liked us. That was good to hear.
"It was like two days in a row. The first day we had three coaches in and then the next day before the game it was USC and Oregon. That was really cool. A lot of people have been coming."
Other schools including Washington State, San Jose State, Arizona State, Auburn, Florida State and Tennessee have also sent recruiting mail.
