Kallon is a highly intelligent young man. He carries a 3.6 grade-point average. Going to college was never going to be an issue because academics are paramount to him. But now that he has discovered football he will have plenty of options to pursue a great education and his new-found passion.
Arkansas was the first to offer him a scholarship, less than a week ago. Since then, Syracuse, Purdue, NC State, Duke, Illinois, Virginia, Maryland and Boston College have as well. This comes on the heels of just nine practice sessions and a spring game.
"It's hasn't sunk in yet," said Kallon, who hopes to camp this summer at Auburn, Maryland and Florida. "I will let it marinate in my brain. Never in my wildest dreams did I think any of this was going to happen. I never thought it would be possible. I am kind of taking it one step at a time right now."
