Did Crockett Commit During his Visit?

Edison Friendship Charter (Washington, D.C.) running back Malcolm Crockett told ScarletReport.com last week Rutgers was his favorite, and he could commit to the Scarlet Knights during his visit to attend a camp. Well, that day was Tuesday, and Crockett had a chance to speak with coach Greg Schiano. What transpired? Crockett spoke with ScarletReport.com about it.

Edison Friendship Charter (Washington, D.C.) running back Malcolm Crockett told ScarletReport.com last week he may commit to Rutgers when he camp there.

Well, he was on campus Tuesday and met with coach Greg Schiano, but no commitment was made …yet.

Following an afternoon of working out with the running backs, the 5-foot-10, 185-pound Crockett said "Rutgers is still the leader," and a decision could be coming very soon.

"I want to go back home and sit with folks I'm close to before I make a decision," Crockett said. "I'm going to be making a decision pretty soon. I don't want to be riding along with this."

During running back drills, Crockett showed quick feet and quick burst. He also caught the ball well.

Crockett spoke with Rutgers coach Greg Schiano and the possibility of committing was addressed, and the staff was receptive to it.

This was also the first time Crockett was able to see the Rutgers campus, and he enjoyed the spaciousness and relative quiet atmosphere on the Busch campus.

"I talked to coach and told him how I felt, that they were pretty high on my list," Crockett said. "The campus is beautiful, and it's a good environment. If I come here, there are no distractions. You can focus and work hard and get better."

Crockett holds double-digit offers, but Rutgers' offense fits the style he desires. And after North Carolina State received a commitment from running back Anthony Knight, the Scarlet Knights became the only school on Crockett's offer sheet to run a pro-style offense.

"The reason I said I may be committing is they are my offer with a pro-style offense, and I really like a pro-style offense," he said. ‘That's what I want to run in."
