Crenshaw Crushes at Camp then Commits

Chris Crenshaw is a 6'2", 235-pound defensive end from Jefferson County and one of four recruits to commit to Georgia Tech at the conclusion of their camp last Saturday.

Chris Crenshaw came into Georgia Tech's camp on Saturday with even more motivation than usual. He was told prior to the camp by Coach Giff Smith that if he had a good camp he would get an offer from Georgia Tech. Throughout the recruiting process, Coach Smith has been Chris' main contact with Georgia Tech. Prior to the camp, Chris held an offer from Mississippi State and was also hearing from Vanderbilt.

It was easy to see from the beginning of the camp that not too many offensive linemen were able to control Chris' speed rush. When asked if he went up against any good offensive linemen at the camp, Chris felt that there were two that stood out but couldn't remember their names. He had his way with most of the linemen.

During breaks in the camp, Chris was able to bond with current Georgia Tech defensive tackle Darryl Richard to talk about football technique and academics. They discussed different moves and stunts that they use and the academic support that is available for the players at Georgia Tech.

At the conclusion of the camp, Chris was rewarded for his hard work and performance at the camp. He was asked to come to Coach Paul Johnson's office where he received his offer and committed on the spot. When asked to describe the feeling, Chris said that he was very excited. It made for an easier ride back to Jefferson County.

Chris will be working on his strength and getting bigger this summer as he and his teammates prepare for the upcoming season. He hopes to put on 20 pounds before he arrives at Tech. If their offensive line performs well, they feel that they will have a good season.

Chris is looking forward to attending some of the home games this season. When asked if he had anything to say to the Georgia Tech fans, Chris wanted to let everyone know that he can't wait to get to Georgia Tech. Chris is a soft spoken player that Tech fans can look forward to seeing his actions take care of his talking on the field.
