After postponing a scheduled official visit to Virginia Tech on the weekend of November 27th (wanted to focus on state playoffs), 6-6, 320-pound offensive tackle prospect Curtis Crouch considered rescheduling the trip to Blacksburg for this weekend. The E.E. Smith (Fayetteville, NC) star has decided to visit N.C. State instead.
“We’re going to N.C. State this weekend,” Crouch said. “I’ll let you know how it went after Sunday. N.C. State is a team that’s been with me from the beginning. They were the first team to offer me a full scholarship. I like everything about the school. I have a lot of friends up there. I’ve been up there a lot for games, so hopefully I’ll find even more things to like about it.”
Which other teams does Crouch want to visit before making his decision?
“Virginia Tech, and maybe Clemson,” Crouch said. “Hopefully I’ll be able to make my decision in January. At first I wanted to decide in December, but some things changed with my schedule. We went to the state championship and I had to push some things back.”
Crouch has been to Oklahoma for an official visit, but the trip took place one month ago. Is the experience still fresh in his mind?
“It’s still the same feeling,” Crouch said of his feeling towards Oklahoma. “Actually, I’m wishing I could go up there again (laughs).”
How was the Oklahoma experience?
“It was good,” Crouch said. “Everything there was good. I’m still weighing my options though.”
On each of his visits, Crouch is looking into one major factor for each program.
“The academic program,” Crouch said. “All of the schools I’m looking at seem to have good football programs. I want to see which school has better academics. I want to go to the best all-around school.”
Crouch, who didn’t name any leaders among the 4 schools he’s considering, discussed what he likes about the Hokies right now.
“I’m impressed with the football program,” Crouch said. “They’ve proven each year that they can win. They’ve done some unbelievable things football-wise. And they told me that 67% of the seniors that played this year had already graduated.”
