Crawford Is A Wolverine
Word started to leak out late Thursday night that Detroit Renaissance junior swingman Joe Crawford had reached a decision. Sources told TheInsidersHoops.com that Crawford, following a big game against Crockett on Friday night, would formally announce for Michigan.
One of the state's top juniors and a big time national recruit, Crawford averaged 18 points as a sophomore and attended the 2002 Nike All-American Camp.
As a sophomore, he was on the Detroit PSL all-tournament team and was an all-metro Detroit Free Press selection.
Crawford will join Ronald Coleman, another top junior, in the 2004 Michigan recruiting class. We understand that Crawford also took a long hard look at Michigan State, Missouri and Ohio State before selecting the Wolverines. Together, the pair solidifies Michigan's perimeter and gives head coach Tommy Amaker a formidable scoring pop and even more athleticism on the wings.
