E.E. Smith (Fayetteville, NC) defeated Ashley 63-26 last Friday, advancing to the Class 4-A state semifinals and a matchup with Rolesville this Friday. In order to fully focus on his team’s matchup this week and the rest of the playoffs, mammoth E.E. Smith 6-6, 320-pound offensive tackle Curtis Crouch has decided to reschedule his official visit to Virginia Tech.

The visit was originally scheduled for this weekend.

“I just rearranged it,” Crouch said of his visit to Virginia Tech. He did not attend any Tech football games. “I’m going to do it on December 10th now.”

Crouch has made one official visit, which was to Oklahoma on the weekend of November 12-14. It was his first official visit experience and it seemed to go really well.

“It was a very nice experience,” Crouch said of the Oklahoma trip. “They showed me some things I expected and they showed me some things that surprised me. They have a great all-around program – great education, great facilities and a great football program. Everything was more than I expected.”

And what surprised him about the visit?

“The thing that surprised me the most was the team’s preparation for the game,” Crouch said. “I’ve never seen a team prepare like that. They were relaxed. They seemed to be playing around and just be normal right before the game. Once the game started, they got serious.”

What’s next for the talented prospect?

“I want to take all 5 official visits, but I might only take 2 more,” Crouch said. “I’ll go to Virginia Tech and Tennessee. I haven’t heard from Tennessee in a little bit, but the next time I talk to them I’ll try to set something. I might also take one to N.C. State. I haven’t been around the actual campus there. I might make a visit just to make sure I know everything.

“I’m trying to commit somewhere early. I want to see other schools to make sure I make the right decision. I don’t want to name any favorites right now. I have no favorites until I take more visits.”

Other schools that remain in the mix include Clemson, East Carolina and Georgia. Crouch said his “main 4” schools are N.C. State, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Virginia Tech. He has official offers from all 4 of his primary schools as well as Clemson and East Carolina.

Before he visits Virginia Tech, what does he like about the Hokies?
