Crockett Names Leader

Rutgers offered Edison Friendship (Washington, D.C.) running back Malcolm Crockett this week, and he promptly turned around and named a leader. But who is in front for the services of the 5-foot-11, 185-pound Crockett? And when he said "I might end up committing" during a visit next week, which school was he talking about? has the answers, so check inside and for the information.

Edison Friendship Charter (Washington, D.C.) running back Malcolm Crockett received an offer from Rutgers this week, and it immediately vaulted the Scarlet Knights to the top of his list.

Crockett, a 5-foot-10, 185-pounder, will be on Rutgers' campus Monday to meet with the coaching staff, see more of the campus and perhaps participate in the day's camp events.

And he is going there with very good thoughts about the school.

"Rutgers is my leader," Crockett said. "Most of my offers are from schools that run a spread offense, but I really want to be in a pro-style offense.

"I'm going to go Monday and look how things are, and if feel like I'm at home, I might end up committing. I just want to see the campus, and if I stayed there, how things are going to be, and my environment, my surroundings."

Crockett holds close to double digit offers, but there is one thing about the Rutgers offer that stands out to him.

"I was pretty happy because one thing I really like about Rutgers is the pro-style offense they run," he said. "That's my bread and butter right there. Now that I have the offer, that's really exciting. I want to be in a pro-style offense."

Crockett is a between-the-tackles running back, but he possesses speed to get down the field. He was timed in the 100 meters at 10. 9 seconds.

As a junior, Crockett ran for 1,100 yards and 15 touchdowns.

Aside from Rutgers, Crockett said he holds Michigan and Cincinnati in high regard.

He was scheduled to visit Virginia on Wednesday afternoon, and was in the process of booking flights to get a better look at the Wolverines and Bearcats.

If he does not commit to Rutgers during his Monday visit, Crockett said it won't be long before he makes a decision.

"No later than the end of next month," Crockett said. "I want to make it soon."
