His father, Kevin Crosby, is his head coach. His uncle Corey, is an assistant.
The youngest Crosby, who is just a freshman mind you, grew up watching superstars like Ricky Sapp and DaQuan Bowers go on to have standout careers at Clemson before moving on to the NFL.
The two defensive ends that are near and dear to the hearts of Tiger fans are closer to Crosby.
"Rick's my brother. When he was in high school, he always took care of me. He still does," Crosby said. "I call him my big brother. DaQuan, I call him my cousin. They're real close to me."
The former five-star prospects tell him to remain open with the recruiting process. After all, he's only 14. And nevermind recruiting. Crosby knows there's here's plenty of work ahead, both on and off the field.
"You've got to work hard. You've got to have grades. If you don't have grades, you're not going to get out there," he said. "If you don't have work ethic, you're not going to get to the next level. You've got to be a hard worker."
It's hard to believe schools have already promised offers are on the way in a couple of years.
"Sometimes I'm in my room thinking, ‘I've got a chance to go play on the next level. That'd be pretty good.' You've got to put that behind you," Crosby said. "You've got to worry about your high school now, play for your team." (Scout.com)
Clemson, South Carolina, Illinois, Texas Tech and Pittsburgh are already options for the next level. The Gamecocks got the ball rolling in March. The Illini, Tigers, Panthers and Red Raiders followed.
Crosby camped at Clemson last summer. He's also visited Auburn, Georgia Tech and South Carolina.
"It wasn't surprising that I got an offer. It wasn't where it was from, it was just that I got an offer," he said.
The 6-foot-2, 225-pound rising sophomore still has plenty of room for development.
"I want to improve more on my speed. I've improved it a little bit. I want to improve it more. I want to be stronger, coming off my jams, exploding out of my linebacker stance," he said.
He had 78 tackles, six sacks and 14 receptions for 348 yards and four touchdowns during his freshman season. He played spent most of his time at linebacker last year, and also played tight end.
He'll play in middle linebacker in Bamberg's 3-4 front and be responsible for making all calls and checks on the field.
