It's been a fruitful spring for spring Miami (Fla.) Booker T. Washington wide receiver Antonio Callaway, with programs like Florida, Miami andOle Miss offering the 5-foot-11 speedster.
"The offers just started coming out of nowhere," Callaway said. "Coaches were coming by practice and they liked what they saw. It's been exiting and surprising."
While the offers have been exciting for Callaway, one program has already established a lead.
"Florida is my favorite," Callaway said. "I like everything about that school. I've been liking them since they had Tim Tebow and two of my favorite players ever are Percy Harvin and Jeff Demps. They're small and fast and I feel like I'm the same kind of player and I use them as inspiration."
Callaway plays in an exciting high school offense at Booker T. Washington and he said he's exciting to see Florida's new offense on the field this fall.
"The spread should be exciting," Callway said. "I think that it fits me perfectly. I want to see how it all works for them this fall."
Both Miami and West Virginia are also pushing hard for Callaway, with the hometown 'Canes making an appealing pitch.
"They think I fit in perfectly there," Callaway said. "They have a lot of wide receivers leaving after this year and the year after so if I come in and work hard they think I can have a chance to play."
The chance to play close to home is something Callaway said he'll have to weigh as he starts to think about a decision.
"Miami is right down the street," he said. "My mom can come to the games, practices, whatever. I like that a lot."
