Draft Scout Shilique Calhoun News
12/18/13 - Michigan State's Shilique Calhoun 'definitely' coming back, has bigger goals...Second team. Those two words are just part of the motivation that will bring Shilique Calhoun back to Michigan State's program next season, even though the third-year sophomore would be eligible for the NFL draft if he wanted to declare. Calhoun, in his first season as a full-time starter, led the Spartans with 7.5 sacks, 34 quarterback hurries and 14 tackles for loss. The Big Ten's defensive lineman of the year has been a second-team selection to numerous All-American teams, including the Associated Press.
There's little question scouts already are drooling, but it appears the NFL has to wait. "I'm committed to coming back, definitely," Calhoun said Tuesday. "I want to play with my brothers, I want to get my degree. Also, because, I'm second-team All-American. There are bigger goals here. I definitely would love to be a first-team All-American. That's something I want to accomplish." Underclassmen have until Jan. 15 to declare. - Josh Slagter, Michigan Live
12/13/13 - 2013 WALTER CAMP SECOND TEAM ALL-AMERICAN: DL Shilique Calhoun, Michigan State, 6-4 250, Soph., Middletown, NJ...Calhoun was named the Smith-Brown Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. A first-team All-Big Ten selection by the coaches and media, Calhoun ranks second on the defense in tackles for loss (14 for 75 yards) and production points (227). He also ranks tied for second in the NCAA FBS with four fumble recoveries, which is tied for fifth most in an MSU single-season.
Calhoun has produced a tackle for loss in 10 of his last 12 games; he ranks fifth in the Big Ten in sacks and eighth in tackles for loss. Calhoun also was named one of six finalists for the Ted Hendricks Award, which is given annually to the nation's top defensive end.

12/06/13 - 2013 TED HENDRICKS AWARD FINALIST: SHILIQUE CALHOUN - MICHIGAN STATE 6’4” 250 lbs SO...Calhoun has been named the 2013 Big Ten Defensive Lineman of the Year. The redshirt-sophomore established himself as one of the Nation’s top defensive ends this season - not by recording sacks, but by creating havoc while playing for the top defensive team in the FBS. Calhoun has registered 7 sacks, 13.5 Tackles for Loss and 17 QB Pressures through the end of regular season conference play. He has also forced two fumbles, recovered 4 and returned two of those for touchdowns. Add to that a 56-yard Interception return for a TD, and it gives him three scores this season. - The Ted Hendricks Foundation

Calhoun is the first Spartan defensive player to score three TDs in one season since linebacker T.J. Turner accounted for three in 12 games in 1999 (88-yard interception return at Purdue; 26-yard fumble return at Northwestern; and 24-yard fumble return vs. Florida in 2000 Florida Citrus Bowl). - Michigan State football
