The Bamberg-Ehrhardt High School sophomore was in Tigertown for the Auburn game. A week later, he hit Columbia for South Carolina's meeting with Auburn.

"It was good. I got to talk to coach [Marion] Hobby after the game in the locker room, me and Martin [Aiken]," Crosby recently told CUTigers.com of his trip to Clemson. "[Hobby] came and saw the game the night before. I had a decent game."

What was the nature of the conversation with Hobby?

"He was asking me why I haven't been playing any defense. We just have different kids playing different positions," Crosby said.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound sophomore said the Tigers are evaluating him more as a player for offensive side of the ball. And that's where he's spending most of his time this season, splitting between tight end and wide receiver.

As for the South Carolina trip?

"That was good. I got to talk to coach [Jeep] Ward, got to talk to coach [Jay] Graham. Before the game and after the game, I went into the locker room," Crosby said.

"Coach Graham was saying that he's hearing big things about me and that he said he'd like to get me back up there for another game. I'm probably going to go to the Clemson/Carolina game."

Clemson, South Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, N.C. State, Maryland, Illinois, Pittsburgh, Vanderbilt and UCF have offered Crosby, who claims no list of favorites.

As a freshman, he had 78 tackles, six sacks and 14 receptions for 348 yards and four touchdowns.
