WVU Football Recruiting

Former WVU Commit 4-Star CB Cameron Calhoun Decommits from Cincinnati, Opens Up Recruitment



Making sure you are headed to the right place is important for any recruit, and now one former West Virginia commit has decided Cincinnati isn’t right for him either.

Cameron Calhoun, a 4-star cornerback out of Winston Woods High School in Cincinnati, Ohio, has decided to re-open his recruitment. He tweeted a letter to explain his change of mind Sunday morning. Calhoun committed to Cincinnati, his home program soon after decommitting from WVU at the end of May. He offered much less detail to explain back then. A “I had to get out of Hollywood” caption with Bearcat foot prints and a video of the Cincinnati logo was all Calhoun provided at the time.

As for his latest message, Calhoun tweeted “home town hero out” with his letter. “The decision was hard to make, but after long thought and consideration, I will be decommitting from the University of Cincinnati,” Calhoun said in the middle of his letter to make his choice clear.

Calhoun is listed at 6’2 and 175 pounds. He’s received offers from Akron, Ball State, Boston College, Bowling Green, Central Michigan, Duke, Eastern Michigan, Florida A&M, Georgia Tech, Howard, Jackson State, Kentucky, Marshall, Miami (OH), Ohio, Pitt, Purdue, Rutgers, Toledo and Vanderbilt. When he was committed to WVU, defensive coaches Jordan Lesley and ShaDon Brown led the recruitment in Calhoun.

Is there now a chance WVU could connect back with Calhoun and try to convince the cornerback becoming a Mountaineer is right for him again?
