Yes, it's January. And yes, Kareem Crowell is still committed to Auburn.
But that doesn't mean the recruiting process has reached its conclusion for the big defensive tackle. Not by a long shot.
Crowell, one of the top rated defensive linemen still on the board for the Clemson Tigers in the 2006 recruiting class, received an in-home visit Tuesday from Clemson assistant coach Dabo Swinney.
"Coach Swinney came by school Tuesday. He just came by to check with me and DeAndre [McDaniel]. He checked on our grades and test scores," Crowell told CUTigers.com.
The Florida standout needs one more point on the ACT to qualify. "I just got back a test score. I got a 16 on my ACT. I need a 17 to get qualified. I am on the right track. Next week I will signup to take the next test," he said.
Several other coaches have called our will visit with the prize recruit this week. "I talked to Coach Petrino from Louisville. Auburn is coming by on Thursday or Friday," Crowell said.
When asked where the teams stand, Crowell responded, "I am going to take my two visits this month. Then I am going to sit down with my parents and decide what is best," he added.
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defensive lineman from Florida, right up through signing day.
