Colleyville Heritage (TX) safety Myles Crosby has been ecstatic about the Mustangs ever since he first received an offer from his recruiting coordinator Wes Suan. For Crosby, playing football at SMU fulfills a lifelong dream.
Crosby may be known to the outside world as a model but to his high school coach, he is nothing more than another hard-nosed football player. We caught up with his head coach Mike Fuller to recap Crosby's final high school season and explore how he will fit in with the Mustangs once he arrives on the Hilltop.
How big of an impact did Myles have on your team this year?
Myles had a huge impact on our team this year. He was huge in our pass defense but had an even bigger impact making plays in the running game.
What are Myles's best skills and attributes?
Myles is a very physical and explosive player. He is very long and has great speed and agility... especially for someone his height. He has a great frame and will continue to get bigger and stronger.
What does Myles need to improve on?
If he can start catching the ball as a safety as well as he did when he played receiver, he will have a lot of interceptions. He got his hands on several interceptions this year where he just didn't make the catch.
Will player make an immediate impact at SMU or will he need time to develop?
I think his spring and summer training will have everything to do with how quickly he makes an impact at SMU. Schematically, he will pick things up very quickly because he is smart and has been running multiple coverages and making checks for a few years now. There is always an adjustment for players moving from the high school to the collegiate level.
Why is SMU a good fit for Myles?
SMU was a great fit for Myles! I believe he will thrive there and do a great job for the Mustangs!
