Jon McCall is a big framed wideout with freakishly elite athletic ability. It is a huge mystery as to why the 6’4 Senior receiver out of Sophie B. Wright isn’t on EVERY school’s radar. McCall has 4 touchdowns through only 3 games of his still early Senior Campaign, which is impressive to say that he often finds himself covered by 2-3 defenders everytime he lines up. Most likely because of his insane ability to go up and get every pass that is thrown his way.
While his heart is primarily on the field, Jon also shares his heart with the classroom and basketball. McCall is a starter on the basketball team and a top student at his school, maintaining a 3.0 GPA in all Honor Classes. Coaches you may want to take notice before it is too late, because Jon McCall is truly a hidden treasure.
As a Multiple sport athlete how do you find a balance between school and your sports?

Ok Jon, Final Question, What is your message if any to college coaches out there?

Bullet trains, cheetahs, and Alred Luke all things that if you look up the word speed a picture of them will show up. But, this isn’t about bullet trains or cheetahs no this is about someone who is so fast and quick that if you blink he’s already doing the griddy in the endzone…
