DE Jarrett Crittenton Profile

The Clemson Tigers are one of many top programs in the country to offer 6-6, 270 pound defensive end Jarrett Crittenton out of North Dakota State.

"I have a lot of offers now," Crittenton told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I have offers from Arkansas, Kansas State, Clemson, Auburn, Mississippi State, Wisconsin, Texas A&M, Purdue and a couple more. Minnesota actually offered this morning."

When asked about his current favorites, Crittenton responded, "I don't have any right now."

The verbal commitment timing may be changing for the top defensive end.

"I was trying to see if I could make it at the beginning of my season or close to the end of summer. Since I keep getting offers like Minnesota this morning I may push it back some," stated Crittenton.

The former Georgia high school standout says distance will not be a factor in his decision.

"It doesn't matter. As long as I can go somewhere and play," said Crittenton. The JUCO standout visited Clemson earlier this year.

"I have taken visits to Mississippi State and Clemson. The Clemson trip went well. I really enjoyed meeting all of the coaches. Coach Rumph is recruiting me for Clemson. I really like him," said Crittenton.

The prize recruit will also have three years to play two at the college level.

"I am going to graduate early. I will be done in December," said Crittenton. "Everything is going good for me right now. I am enjoying being home this summer," said Crittenton.

What will be important to Crittenton when he selects his college destination?

"Basically my education will come first. Then I want to know that I can come in and play. I want to get on the field and show my talent. I want to know that I can fit in with the community," he said.
