March 15, 2013Houston (Texas) Alief Taylor rising senior safety Joshua Kalu claims scholarship offers from Colorado, Houston, SMU and Wake Forest.
"Wake Forest, my friend [and former high school teammate] Duke Ejiofor just committed there," Kalu said. "He told me it's a great school. He told me a little bit about it."
"U of H, it's [in my] hometown I know a lot about U of H, their team, their records. SMU, I don't really know a lot about it, and Colorado, I know a little bit. I talked to the coach. I've seen my some videos. I know it's cold, but it's nothing you can't get used to."
Kalu wants to attend a big school that offers his degree, has a good reputation academically and would not have a problem leaving Texas.
He has not scheduled any trips for this spring.
Derrick Jackson is his area recruiter for the Demon Deacons. Tim Duffie also played a significant role in his recruitment for Wake until he left for an opening on Oklahoma State's coaching staff.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder said Jackson is someone he can see himself playing for.
Do not anticipate a quick decision from Kalu. He wants to take his time through the recruiting process in case offers pile in late, which was the case with Ejiofor after he committed to Wake Forest.
Kalu has not set a timetable for when he would like to have his recruitment wrapped up.
The Lone Star State safety is athletic and versatile enough to play cornerback.
