Slight favorite for Calhoun

Derik Calhoun already has four offers and he's pleased with how his recruitment is going early on as one Pac-12 team is standing out and many others remain in contention.
UCLA looks to have the early edge for the 2014 linebacker from El Cerrito, Calif., and he said the Bruins continue to diligently recruit him.
Calhoun, a 6-foot, 215-pound four-star prospect, said he likes a lot of things about the UCLA program but he's planning to take his recruitment slowly through this off-season.
"I'm getting a lot of interest from UCLA," Calhoun said.
"I like them a lot too, especially the coaches and the campus, everything. I want to take it slow though because I have a whole other season."
Arizona State is the latest offer for Calhoun, who also has Washington and Utah on his list. The El Cerrito prospect was arguably the top prospect at the Cal State Underclassmen Combine last week in Visalia, Calif.
It's expected more offers could be coming - Oregon, USC and Boise State recently stopped by the school - so Calhoun doesn't want to rush anything.
He's appreciative of his position with four early offers and said he wants to continue working hard to land more.
"I just got that offer from Arizona State," Calhoun said. "They recently got involved and they've been sending me letters.
"I'm doing good just chilling right now. I'm just going to these camps and trying to show out as much as possible.
"I'm really happy. I already have four offers so far. Everything is coming so quick because I'm about to be a senior. That's crazy."
