St. Martin senior receiver Kalem Reddix has decided to head out west to continue his football career.
Reddix, who has been putting up some of the nation's best numbers as a receiver, announced Thursday that he has verbally committed to play football at Colorado State.
Reddix began to receive intense interest from Colorado State about three weeks into the season and all that attention paid off Thursday for Colorado State head coach Mike Bobo.
“It's crazy how the head coach calls me every day and talks to me like a normal person,” Reddix said. “They showed a lot of love and they came down to see me.”
A member of the CSU staff, graduate assistant George Helow, visited Reddix on Wednesday, helping seal the deal for the gifted receiver.
Reddix, who committed to USM in April and later decommitted, was relieved to finally settle on a school.
“It's good. Everybody won't be blowing my phone,” Reddix said. “I know where I want to be for the next four years for sure.”
Reddix also received scholarship offers from Southern Miss, Middle Tennessee, Troy, UAB, Tulane, Louisiana-Lafayette, Tulane, Jackson State, Southeastern Louisiana and Alcorn State.
Reddix hasn't visited the CSU campus in Fort Collins, but he plans to make an official visit on Dec. 9.
“I'm going up there to check out everything and make sure I like it. I'm pretty sure I will,” Reddix said. “It's a nice college. I've been doing my research on everything.”
Reddix is in the middle of a monster senior season with 76 catches for 1,535 yards and 19 touchdowns. He ranks fifth in the nation in total receiving yards, according to MaxPreps.com.
