Fort Meade (Fla.) all-purpose running back Onterrio McCalebb recently received several additional scholarship offers and is getting serious attention from other programs.
"Everything is going good with recruiting," he said. "I've got new offers from Rutgers, South Florida, Kentucky, Mississippi State and Troy."
Those five programs join Auburn, Ole Miss and West Virginia in offering McCalebb, the Florida Class 1A 100 and 200-meter dash champion for this year. McCalebb posted a 10.72-second 100 and 22.31 time in the 200 to capture the title.
On Wednesday, one of the in-state Atlantic Coast Conference programs stopped by to check on the 5-foot-10, 180-pound speedster.
"Miami came by today," he said. "They said they may offer me. That's a good school."
Even with the attention from the Canes and other schools, McCalebb remains wide open.
"I'm interested in all of the schools that are interested in me," he said. "It's going to come down to the last part of recruiting. When I make my official visits, whatever school shows me the most, that's who I am going to sign with."
With his speed, McCalebb can do a variety of things to help a football team. He can play running back, slot receiver and return kicks. He had approximately 1,500 yards rushing and 500 receiving during his junior season.
"I just like to get the ball in my hands and do things," he said.
Currently, McCalebb is going through spring football practice with his Fort Meade teammates.
"It's going real good," he said.
