Prep football: Offers piling up for Manatee's Calloway

(photo by Tiffany Tompkins-Condie)It appears as if Derrick Calloway has emerged as the breakout star of Manatee's stacked defensive line.
Or at the least the most heavily-recruited.
Calloway has received scholarship offers from a number of Division I schools, including Ohio State, who offered the junior Tuesday, according to Manatee assistant coach Chris Conboy.
USF, FSU, Miami, USC and Texas Tech have also extended offers to Calloway, who received a four-star rating rating from Rivals and was ranked the fourth-best defensive lineman in the state by
Calloway had 58 tackles and 11 sacks last year for Manatee, including three sacks against Jacksonville First Coast in the Class 7A state final.
Calloway anchors a defensive line next year that also returns Blake Keller, DeMarcus Christmas and Marquis Dawsey.
The group teamed for 43 sacks last fall in helping the Hurricanes win their fifth state title and first since 1992.
