DT Kareem Crowell
6-5, 285, 5.2
Godby High School
The Auburn Tigers have long been considered the top school for Tallahassee native DT Kareem Crowell. However, according to Crowell Monday evening, Clemson has taken the lead for the time being.
"Clemson, they have moved into the number one spot. Auburn is number two. After them I like North Carolina and Louisville," he said.
"Clemson has always been there. I was looking at their depth chart with DeAndre (recently). I think it's a place where I can play. DeAndre says it's a nice place."
Crowell's official visit plans are not clear yet entering his senior season. "I know after the season I will take my official visits though," he said. "I know I will take an official visit to Clemson. I am going to Auburn and Georgia Tech this weekend. But for the most part, I want to try to focus on my season so I'm not sure when I will take any other visits."
So does the commitment of his teammate (DeAndre McDaniel) to Clemson effect Crowell's decision at all?
"That question comes up all the time," he said with a laugh. "A lot of people ask if we will play together. You know we have been together since middle school. I would say there is a real good chance. We know where DeAndre is going, now the question is where will I go?"
The Florida standout is an outstanding lineman that can play on both sides of the ball. "I can play both (ways). I don't care where I play. Whatever position the coaches decide I should play. I just want to play," Crowell said.
His commitment timing remains currently unclear. "I haven't decided yet. It's real close between Clemson and Auburn. I want to go to Clemson before I make my decision. DeAndre says it's a good town. It's a great football town. That's what I like," he said.
Crowell added that he has big hopes for Godby this season. "We got put out in second round or the first round of the playoffs the last couple of years. With all the talent we have I want to go to state championship," he said.
"I graded out at 85 on offense this weekend. On defense I had five tackles and one sack."
