Crowder will trim list soon

Tyrone Crowder is one of the top offensive linemen in the country. His offer list continues to grow and that probably will not change anytime soon.

"Nebraska is the latest school to offer, that makes 16," said Tyrone Crowder (6'3/330). "I think Stanford could be next, they are waiting on my test scores."

The four-star offensive guard will narrow his list of possible schools soon.

"I am going to narrow my list down sometime in the middle of May," he said. "I am going to cut it down to five schools."

Crowder has visited several schools, and his most recent trip went very well.

"I visited Florida on (April) 5 and 6," he said. "It was a great trip; I got to meet all the coaches. I went with teammates Alex Norton and Devontae Covington. We got to tour the campus and facilities, it was really nice."

While on campus, Scout's No.3 offensive guard was able to talk with some of the Gators coaching staff.

"I got to sit down and talk with Coach (Will) Muschamp and Coach (D.J.) Durkin," said Crowder. "They said you are the guy we want, and while you are down here, take everything in and have fun."

What impressed Crowder the most about his trip to Gainesville?

"I liked the whole campus lifestyle," he said. "It was big and people were everywhere, it just seemed like it would be a great place to go to school. It was definitely one of my top visits so far, along with Alabama and Clemson."

Crowder has not set a date for his decision.

"I don't necessarily have to make my decision on signing day," he said. "Whenever I feel like there is a school I want to go to, I will go ahead and make my decision."

Several factors will go into that decision.

"I want to go to a great program with great coaches," Crowder said. "I am also looking for a great campus lifestyle."

This summer, the Raiders' star will most likely focus on visiting schools.

Currently, I believe Alabama, Clemson, and Florida have the best chance at landing his commitment. However, I would not count out North Carolina and North Carolina State. Stanford is another team that could emerge for Crowder if they extend a scholarship offer.

He did say that Clemson is recruiting him the hardest. No schools are standing out for the Richmond County product at this time. Location will not be a factor in his decision.
