Time at home in New Orleans for OT Caleb Etienne of Butler JC, KS during the pandemic has meant some good home cooking. And with that, his weight has jumped up 20 pounds to 335 pounds on his 6-9 frame. Etienne hopes to arrive at Butler July 28th so he can prepare for the season and show recruiters why he’s regarded the #2 offensive tackle prospect in junior college per 247Sports.
USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford offered Etienne April 9th and continues to pursue him for a possible third offensive lineman in the class.
“I talk to Coach Wolford a lot, almost every day,” Etienne said. “He’s my guy. He just lets me know how much I’m considered a big-time player around there. He said once everything clears up, for sure we are going to set up a visit. He’s been telling me about how they take care of their players and make sure they are straight. They treat everybody like family.”
Etienne has a top four at this point of USC, Oregon, Texas Tech and Houston. He said Wolford has explained to him how his size and skills would fit in with what he runs on his offensive line.
“He said I could be a part of them because of the way I play, they have the same thing as how I play on the field, so he said I would be a good asset as a left tackle,” Etienne said. “They are definitely at the top for sure. I’m really open up to a lot of schools but I’m starting to get close to narrowing it down pretty soon though.”
Some of his other offers are Mississippi State,Arkansas, East Carolina, Oklahoma State, UAB, UCF and Ole Miss. Etienne committed to Ole Miss in high school but signed with Nichols State. But he didn’t quality and enrolled at Fort Scott JC, KS for the 2019 season.
Etienne wants to take official visits to his top four. He has one set up with Texas Tech for his off week September 12th. He does not expect to make a decision until later in his season or after the season.
