Kevin Crosby camps in Tuscaloosa

Kevin Crosby, linebacker from Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School in S.C., spent four days camping at the University of Alabama. Crosby is one of the top 2014 prospects in the Southeast with more than 30 scholarship offers. He talked about his time spent with the Crimson Tide.

"The camp at Alabama was really good," said Kevin Crosby. "It was a lot of hard work. We went through position drills and seven-on-seven. All the coaches get after it like you are already there.

"I worked out at tight end and linebacker. I liked playing both. There was a lot of competition at both positions. The coaching staff was great. They are on you just like you play for them right now. They teach you things to help make you better."

Crosby spent a lot of time with the entire coaching staff including a meeting Wednesday morning with head coach Nick Saban.

"I spent time with coach Rumph, coach Smart and the tight ends coach [Bobby Williams]," he said. "I spent time with all the coaches on both sides. They told me to keep working hard. They told me just to keep working hard.

"I spent time with coach Saban this morning. Coach Saban was basically saying when you come to Alabama what they expect. He wasn't trying to pressure me to go there. He talked in general about college and the expectations."

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound prospect is mainly recruited as an athlete. Alabama likes him as an H-Back or linebacker.

"They will be one of my top schools for sure," Crosby said of the Tide. "The coaches stand out. Their style of play and the atmosphere stand out to me. The academics really stand out."

Crosby plans for more trips this summer.

"I think my next trip is to Florida," he said. "I want to get to Tennessee in July. I am trying to narrow down my list. It's tough. I have 34 offers now."
