Crowder, who is being recruited as an athlete, says he is unsure of his future position. He's played corner back for Monroe, but at the Duke camp he spent a lot of time working with the wide receivers.
"Honestly I am not totally sure where they have me as far as position goes. I worked out a lot with the receivers and did well. I like defense, but I also like getting the ball and making things happen. If I had my choice I'd play as a slot guy."
He certainly has the speed and the measureables for that. At 5-foot-9 and 175 pounds, Crowder has been clocked at 4.48 in his forty yard dash and says he excels in turning a five yard out pattern into a big gain. So it's no wonder a program that has worked hard to improve team speed was so interested.
"With Duke it was really a case where I felt good, but the coaches really out-worked everyone. They were always staying in touch and when I visited there I was just really comfortable with it all. I have a good relationship with Coach Lubbick and when I called this morning both he and Coach Cutcliffe were really excited."
"Coach Cutcliffe told me I made a really good choice and that when I graduate from Duke I will be able to look back and know that I got the best opportunity to excel on the field and away from it as well."
Once he arrives at Duke, Jamison will re-team with high school teammate Issac Blakeney who starred at Monroe as a senior. Crowder lined up opposite of the Duke freshman and ended his junior season with 630 yards and 13 touchdowns receiving.
