That was the case on Thursday as Carver was one of nearly two dozen teams in Auburn for a team camp as the skill players took part in a 7-on-7 tournament while the linemen had a tournament of their own. That meant not much action for Crowell, but he was happy with his team's performance just the same.
"It's good for us," Crowell tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. "We're just trying to get better with every play. I want to go hard on every play I'm on the field and never take a play lightly.
"We're trying to build up our passing game some," he added. "We know our running game is going to be good. We're just trying to work on our passing game and build up our weaknesses. It's okay for me. I don't catch a lot of passes in games, but I catch a lot out there because all we do is throw the ball."
Rated as the nation's number two running back prospect and a five-star player by Scout.com, Crowell has dozens of offers from some of the top prospects in the country but that doesn't mean he's satisfied with where his game is at the moment.
"I'm trying to get stronger and faster," Crowell said. "I'm trying to work hard to get myself ready for college."
Currently 6-0, 210 with a personal-best 40-yard dash time of 4.38 seconds, Crowell already has an unusual blend of size and blinding speed and hopes to increase both between now and the start of his senior season in less than three months.
Something that has increased already is the attention that Crowell is receiving from schools all over. With offers literally from coast to coast, he said that currently two schools are at the top for him following his short visit to Auburn for the team camp.
"I don't really know a lot about Auburn because I haven't really been down there to hang out," Crowell said. "I should get down there again soon though.
