Kallon lands 3 quick offers

Francis Kallon moved to Georgia from England last fall. He had never played American football until last month.
Yet on Monday, the Lawrenceville Central Gwinnett junior defensive end picked up offers No. 1 and 2.
On Tuesday, No. 3 came in.
"I've never seen anything like it," Central Gwinnett coach Todd Wofford said. "The kid is so big and has so much athleticism. I was trying to get him out to football since I saw him walk in the building. He's a freakish-looking kid."
Arkansas became the first to offer the 6-foot-5, 245-pounder Monday morning. Later in the day, N.C. State pulled the trigger. Duke joined the club Tuesday morning, and Wofford suspects many more offers are on the way.
"The first thing [college coaches say when they see him] is they can't believe his size and how athletic he is," Wofford said. "The size intrigues them. Then the more they see him move around, they see his motor. And the fact he really has only played a few days, it's one of those things where he really has no bad habits."
Besides the Razorbacks, Wolfpack and Blue Devils, Kallon also is hearing from programs such as Auburn, Cincinnati, Duke, Florida, Maryland, Tennessee and Vanderbilt, Wofford said. The Commodores, who are hitting Georgia hard in this cycle, are expected to drop by the school Friday. Additionally, Kallon plans to camp at both Auburn and Florida this summer.
"He's just now starting to hit the weights," Wofford said. "He'll probably be a 265-pound kid going into whichever school he goes to."
