DE Corey Crawford Profile
The former Carver High School (Columbus, Ga.) four-star defensive end said he was surprised by the move.
CUTigers caught up with Crawford shortly after he got news that Rumph is no longer on the staff at Clemson.
"I kind of was [surprised], because I was expecting to be coached by him this year," he said.
Crawford, who spent this past fall at Hargrave Military Academy, made his official visit the weekend of the South Carolina game. That's the last time he and Rumph spoke.
Crawford is scheduled to arrive in Clemson for orientation on Sunday. At the latest, he'll know for sure by Friday if anything has changed.
"I'm still committed," Crawford said. "I don't think I'll be going anywhere else, as of now, but right now, it's just about me seeing what happened, and getting a feel for what I want to do."
If he was to look elsewhere, he said Alabama and Georgia are two possibilities.
Crawford briefly spoke with defensive backs coach Charlie Harbison after hearing the news.
"He said he was going to call me back. Other than that, I haven't talked to any other coach," Crawford said.
When he hears back from Harbison, Crawford would like to learn one thing.
"I just want to see if there's going to be a good d-line coach coming," he said.
