Ten days after he announced his commitment to Oregon State live on national television during U.S. Army All-American Game, four-star wide receiver Jamire Calvin has announced via Twitter that he is re-opening his recruitment, to ensure that he makes “the best decision for his future”.
I've decided to re-open my recruitment. Have to make sure I am making the best decision for my future. No interviews at the moment please.— Jamire Calvin (@Jcalv6) January 18, 2017
The news comes as a bit of a surprise to Beavers fans, who were elated at the public display of affection towards their team, especially coming off the heels of a trying 4-8 season. However, there was speculation that Calvin may be having second thoughts about his original decision over the last week, highlighted by his Twitter response to Bishop Gorman wide receiver Tyjon Lindsey’s commitment to Nebraska, one of the final five schools that Calvin considered.
Congrats brother, who knows what could happen next.. https://t.co/DTp1gDWHGJ— Jamire Calvin (@Jcalv6) January 14, 2017
While Calvin re-opening his recruitment doesn’t mean that the four-star prospect is no longer considering the Beavers, it does put the potential for him to switch his commitment to another school very possible, especially as Signing Day grows nearer. Calvin originally chose Oregon State over the likes of Alabama, Nebraska, Notre Dame and Washington State, who will all likely be contenders once-again for the four-star talent’s services.
