Q&A: Kai Callins surprised by OU invite 

April, 18, 2012
There was no doubt that class of 2014 athlete Kai Callins (Guthrie, Okla./Guthrie) was hoping to get an invitation to Oklahoma’s spring game, but he never thought it would come. Less than three days before the event, he was told by his coaches that OU wanted him to show up. Better late than never.

Callins is tough to define at this point in terms of what position he will play at the next level. At 5-foot-10 and 175 pounds, a variety of spots suit the sophomore well.

Even if you can’t figure out his position, he can let his play do the talking. On offense in 2011, Callins rushed for 700 yards on 76 attempts and 10 touchdowns, and added 27 receptions for 361 yards and another five touchdowns. On defense, he had four interceptions in helping Guthrie win the Oklahoma Class 5A championship.

Callins talked to SoonerNation about his recent visit to Oklahoma for the Sooners' Red-White spring game:

SoonerNation: How surprised were you by the invite to OU’s spring game?

Kai Callins: I was very surprised. I didn’t expect something like that to happen. I’m just a sophomore and to get an invite to OU is pretty cool.
