Caleb Ham knows a lot about football. His father Tracy Ham won two national titles at Georgia Southern and Caleb is waiting for his turn to make plays on the next level.

"I have been getting mail from Ohio, Georgia Tech, Georgia Southern, Middle Tennessee, and schools like that so far. No offers for me yet, but some schools are showing interest," Caleb Ham told Scout.

Ham plays both sides of the ball for Union Grove and the 6-foot-1, 170 pound junior is working hard towards earning scholarship offers.

"I really work on the little things and I think that has helped me become the player that I am. I am a hard worker and I plan to go to plenty of one-day camps and try to show what I can do. I want to get out in front of coaches and try to earn those scholarship offers."

When asked about his ability as a wide receiver Ham said, "I know how to go get the ball. I attack it in the air and I take catching the ball very serious. My hands would be a real strength at this position."

His first choice of position would be receiver in college, but he has some ability on the other side of the ball too.

"As a defensive back I am best in coverage. I need to get better in run support, but I am strong in coverage. I also use my hands well at corner like I do at receiver."

This 2014 athlete out of McDonough, Ga. has been around the game of football for most of his life. His father Tracy Ham played quarterback at Georgia Southern and he helped the Eagles win two national titles there.

The younger Ham gives his father a lot of credit.

"It has helped a lot having a dad that knows the game," he said. "He played quarterback, but he really knows about every position. He has helped me a lot at catching the ball, he has helped with my footwork, and he has helped a lot overall. I believe it has been a real advantage having a dad that knows football."

Ham is now preparing for a big spring and summer where he will hit the camp circuit. He mentioned Mississippi State and Rutgers as possibilites with many others likely.

He finished the 2012 season with 24 receptions, 468 yards receiving, and six touchdowns.
