     As he boards a plane to head to Texas to take part in the USA vs. the World football game to be held on February 6th, Seattle Prep DB Teré Calloway is secure in the fact that his future lies with the Nevada Wolfpack. Northwest Elite Index caught up with the gifted prospect recently and he filled us in on his decision as well as which BCS programs have offered recently…

     “Nevada was just the right fit for me. I was really leaning hard to Southern Mississippi, especially when coach (Chris) Ault left,” Calloway told NEI. “Then I got a chance to meet with the new coach, coach (Brian) Polian, and he said I was a priority for them and that nothing was going to change. They are losing three guys in their secondary and they want me to come in as a cornerback and to start.

     “Coach Polian just addressed everything that I had concerns about and in the end there just weren’t any negatives.”

     The two-way stud chose Nevada over offers from Colorado, Idaho, Memphis, Nevada, Portland State, Purdue, San Diego State, SMU, Southern Miss, Syracuse, Temple, Colorado State, Tulane, San Jose State and Wyoming and recently he added offers from Wisconsin and Texas Tech.

     Calloway missed some games this season with a leg injury, but still amassed 951 yards and 15 touchdowns rushing. Defensively he finished with 60 tackles, two fumble recoveries and two pass breakups.

     “It’s going to be a lot of fun. There are a lot of talented guys that will be there and I just love to get out and compete,” Calloway noted. “I’ll play in the game, come back and run track and then this summer I will be down in Reno at my new home. I’m really excited.”

     Whatever happens for Calloway in the future, he has been very easy to cover and we at Northwest Elite Index wish him luck in the future.
