6-6, 320-pound E.E. Smith (Fayetteville, NC) offensive tackle Curtis Crouch has finally set up his final 4 official visits. Crouch originally wanted to have made his collegiate decision before Christmas, but his plans were delayed when his team went deep into the state playoffs and when he played in the NC/SC Shrine Bowl.
“I’m looking forward to taking these visits,” Crouch said. “I didn’t know I was going to wait this long.”
The 4 lucky schools on the schedule include Florida on January 7th, N.C. State on January 14th, Clemson on January 21st and Virginia Tech on January 28th. He has already made an official visit to Oklahoma earlier this year.
“I might be committing before I finish making all my visits,” Crouch said. “If I find the place with the right school, education, football program and coaching staff, I would go ahead and commit. Right now, everyone is equal.”
Crouch had an excellent first official visit to Oklahoma and says the Sooners remain very much in the race.
“I’ll try and see if any of these schools can compare with what they showed me,” Crouch said.
The University of Florida is the latest team to enter the picture. The Gators were impressed by Crouch’s performance at the Shrine Bowl and asked him to take a visit.
“I was interested in them before but never heard anything,” Crouch said. “They talked to me at the Shrine Bowl. I’ll take a visit to see what they have to offer.”
As for Virginia Tech, the Hokies have to hope the big man doesn’t commit before making all of his official visits. He stated what he likes about Virginia Tech at this time.
“Football-wise, their program gets better and better and they work harder and harder each year,” Crouch said. “That’s the type of program I want to be in. I don’t know much about the academics or the coaching staff really, but I’ll find out.”
Crouch is rated a 4-star prospect by Rivals.com and Scout.com. He is being recruited as an offensive tackle by all 5 finalists.
