When your offense tosses the ball around the field like Bowling Green's, of course talented high school wide receiver prospects are going to take notice. That was certainly the case for recent Falcon class of 2016 verbal commit Kyree Calli.
"I love their style of play. They run a precise hurry up offense and they love to give the ball to their receivers. When I think of Bowling Green football I think of intensity. It felt like the perfect place for me." The Harrisburg, Pennsylvania native listed to Hustle Belt as a few of reasons that led him to give BGSU a pledge earlier this month over scholarship offers from Mid-American Conference foes Buffalo and Ohio.
Playing for Pennsylvania high school power Bishop McDevitt last season, Kyree was a key reason why the 14-1 Crusaders nearly walked away with a state championship. Hauling in 37 receptions, Calli finished his junior year with 753 yards and 10 touchdowns.
A size advantage at 6'4 and right under 200 pounds, Calli isn't exactly sure how the Bowling Green staff plans to use his skill set on the college level, but has a good idea how they might.
"They haven't said anything about how they're going to use me yet, but I think after seeing my tape they're going to use me for deep balls and red zone jump balls seeing that I'm 6'4." He said.
The Bowling Green class of 2016 is currently sitting at two verbal commitments. With just about six months until national signing day, Calli is joined by Cleveland Central Catholic defensive end Sharif Saleem.
