"It all starts with what we do every day," said Crowder following a 58-0 win over Anson on Friday night. "We know what's expected of us. We know there is going to be some hype – some people doubt us – some people expect us to do this (win every week). But we just keep on going – we treat every game like it's state championship.
The Richmond County star made some tough decisions a few weeks ago, when he narrowed his list of possible schools to four.
"I got Stanford, UNC, Georgia, and Clemson," Crowder said. "It feels pretty good. It kind of takes a little pressure off. I had a big list (of schools), so it was kind of hard to narrow it down. I haven't set up any official visits, but I'm going to take some officials and see how it goes."
Does the No. 3 offensive guard in the country have a leader?
"I couldn't really say, "he said. "Right now, everyone is even – since I just narrowed it down. That's why I'm just going to take more unofficial and official (visits)."
While he said he does not have a leader, Crowder said Clemson and North Carolina are recruiting him the hardest. He does not have decision date at this time.
"I don't have an official date," Crowder said. "Hopefully, after I take my officials, I will know by then. I kind of want to take my officials during the season."
Crowder is looking for a few specific things in a school.
"First is education," he said. "Then a place with a great campus lifestyle. I'm not too worried about playing time. If I have to redshirt, that's fine. If they call me in to start my freshman year – I am going to step up."
For now, the four-star prospect is focused on his football season.
"Our goals are to just really come out and play as a team," said Crowder. "Last season, we weren't really clicking as a unit. Now, we have this thing about trust in each other – just to keep going – and come out and practice and play hard."
