The Bears picked up their top running back portal target today with the commitment of former 4 star Alabama signee and Old Dominion junior transfer Kadarius Calloway‍.

As a consensus 4 start running back out of Philadelphia, Mississippi in 2021, Calloway signed with and enrolled at Alabama as a defensive back and went through training camp before opting to further prepare himself for the D1 level by transferring to East Mississippi Community College where they listed him with 75 carries for 462 yards and 2 TDs his sophomore season after limited duty as a freshman at DB, though his sophomore highlights indicate several more TDs. He also had a kick return for a TD as well.

After transferring to ODU, Calloway injured his foot in spring ball and came back in game four to rush for 623 yards in 88 carries (7.08 ypc) and 5 TDs in 9 games this season. HIs breakout game was his first game back against Marshall with 231 yards and 3 TDs on just 9 carries. Calloway also added 8 catches for 48 yards and 1 TD through the air.

Calloway becomes the 25th signee of the Bears’ 2024 class through prep, JC, portal and grad transfer additions.

Stay tuned for more on Calloway’s signing.

Welcome, Kadarius! AT and Cal Legends have established a monster RB room.

One can never have too many strong RBs. Is Byron Cardwell (Oregon RB) expected to play next year? Or has he moved on? Also is Notre Dame DT Keanaaina, still coming to Cal? I don't see him on our list of signed players? Although he was listed on National Signing Day?

He was a 4 star DB prospect out of HS.
As a RB prospect from the portal his ranking is not as high.

Looks like a good athlete nevertheless....

Rivals doesn't do a good job with portal ratings. Almost everyone uses 247 and On3 for that.

He's 4 stars on 247.

Harris is also a 4-star transfer by 24/7 rankings.

On3 rates Chandler Rogers as a 4-star transfer.

ESPN has Trevor Rogers as a 4-star HS recruit.
