Calbert adds UT to list of offers
K'Rojhn Calbert, right, helps the Pioneers move downfield Friday. Some players would be glad to score 12 points, Calbert scored 12 offers from top colleges who want to recruit the star athelete.
While many students have the senior year task of pursuing entry into a college of their choosing, standout athlete K’Rojhn Calbert has schools pursuing him for a football scholarship.Standing out in more ways than one, this 6-foot-6, 290-pound senior can seem intimidating at first – a plus on the gridiron – but once you talk to him, you find out he’s a self-effacing, modest athlete who is genuinely humble about his thrust into the spotlight of college recruitment.Just this week, Calbert got a phone call from the college of all colleges in Tennessee to be part of his self-confessed dream team, the University of Tennessee.“That’s the one I wanted so badly,” Calbert said. “I worked my butt off going to camps on the weekend. God’s given me this opportunity and I feel blessed.”Calbert said he got the call unexpectedly while relaxing at home.“I was watching a movie and Butch (Jones head football coach at UT) called and asked me what I run the 40 in,” said Calbert.
