Memphis sleeper boasts SEC offer

Memphis (Tenn.) Raleigh Egypt wide receiver Duke Calhoun just finished an outstanding senior season and is getting serious interest from several mid-south programs.
According to Raleigh Egypt head coach Fred Halley, the 6-foot-4, 185-pound Calhoun has received offers from Ole Miss, Memphis, Arkansas State and Tennessee State. Tennessee also is showing strong interest, but has yet to offer.
"He said he likes them all and will visit them all," Halley said. "He likes all of the recruiters.
"He's the No. 1 receiver on Ole Miss' board, the No. 1 receiver on Arkansas State's board and the No. 1 receiver on Memphis' board."
The Rebels and Tigers, however, could have an advantage because of their conference affiliation and proximity to Memphis.
"Of course, the SEC is a strong conference," Halley said. "And Conference USA, with Memphis being located here, it will be a tough decision. His mother has seen him play every game and I'm sure she wants to continue to see him do so."
According to Halley, Calhoun runs a 10.5-second 100-meter dash and helped REHS win a state track title his junior year. He also participates in basketball, averaging just more than 12 points per game, and even hit several game-winning shots for his team in the playoffs last year.
"He is an absolute playmaker," Halley said. "For a player his height, he is very very fast. He has track skills, basketball skills and football skills."
