Burnt Orange Nation caught up with Prudy Calderon, a hard-hitting 2018 San Marcos safety pursuing a Texas Longhorns offer

For some, the Texas Longhorns would be just another offer added to a lengthy list of major suitors. For others, like San Marcos safety Prudy Calderon, a Texas offer would be the only one that mattered.

“Texas is a dream school of mine,” Calderon told Burnt Orange Nation. “It would mean the world to me and it’d be an opportunity that I couldn’t pass up.”

To this point, the sophomore safety has garnered interest from Houston, Kansas State, Kansas, SMU and Rice, among others. Even Texas defensive coordinator Vance Bedford made a stop at San Marcos High School to watch and talk with Calderon towards the end of his sophomore season.

“I think me and everyone saw Texas there and kind of caught a second wind to showcase our talents,” Calderon said.

“I made sure to soak up anything he had to say and made it a point to make a good first impression. He’s obviously a very good coach with instruction and they preach technique,” Calderon said of Bedford.

Texas is yet to offer the Longhorn hopeful, but Calderon’s anticipating his performance at college camps gets coaches talking. That became reality during Texas’ camp on Sunday, in which Longhorns defensive backs coach Clay Jennings complimented Calderon’s 4.56 40 time, elite 4.12 pro agility time and 35-inch vertical jump. Calderon told BON he also plans to attend camps as SMU and Texas Tech this summer, among others.

The 6’0, 185-pound 2018 product still has two years of eligibility ahead of him to showcase why he’s worthy of a Texas offer; something Calderon told BON would guarantee a commitment barring “something out of the ordinary.” If he’s able to build upon to 66-tackle efforts that earned his second team All-District 27-5A honors at safety.

“Size and speed are obviously something you can always improve on,” Calderon said about where he’d like to improve this offseason. “But mostly, technique for me is a must.”

With some improved technique and physical polish over the next two seasons, the hard-hitting Calderon may one day see his name added to a Texas offer list that consists of only 11 recruits thus far. That offer will be the only one that matters.
