Recruiting Update with Scout Four-Star JaQuayln Crawford

Scout caught up with Texas speedster JaQuayln Crawford to gauge his early offer list as well and talk to him about the whirlwind of offers that has blown in.

JaQuayln Crawford, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound wide receiver / cornerback from Rockdale (Texas) has been piling up offer after offer, because he possesses the one asset that is most coveted; speed. 

"I think my best asset is my speed and my quickness," Crawford said when asked about his strengths. "Like my coach says if you are fast it is hard for people to cover you and it is hard to get by you on defense, so my speed and my quickness, I am going to keep working on my route running and my hands and get ready for the next level.

"With that I feel like I can fit in at a program in the slot or even in at corner if I need to play defense. There are few schools out there who want me to play defense."


Crawford explained that Vanderbilt and Texas A&M are a couple of the schools that have offered him for defense before listing the rest of his standout offers.

"SMU, Texas, Florida, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Nebraska, (and) TCU," Crawford said.

The Scout 300 prospect enjoyed a recent unofficial visit to Austin, Texas.  

"Texas stood out big-time," Crawford said. "I was out there last weekend for junior day. It was my first time there so the facilities and meeting all of the coaches and the plan they have for the program, it was real nice."

He is not in the hunt for anymore offers, as he is having a tough time trying to trim his list as it sits. Though, he plans to take his time and enjoy the recruiting process.  

"It is hard enough picking a school right now," Crawford explained. "If Florida State or LSU came it would just be even harder. I am fine where I am at, but if they came out I would be glad to take them."

"I am going to take the visits. If I do have a decision I will probably be silent about it and let everybody know on signing day or pick on signing day, but I want to commit sometime early in my season or sometime before."
