Kilpatrick Talks School Favs

Crawford Kilpatrick is a big receiver from the state of Georgia with so much upside.

Crawford Kilpatrick is one of the top wide receiver prospects from the Peach State and boy is he a big receiver. Kilpatrick, 6-5 and 200 pounds, caught 60 passes for 925 yards and nine scores last season for Suwanee (Ga.) North Gwinnett High School. According to Kilpatrick he has a scholarship offer from Duke while Georgia, Ohio State, LSU, Auburn and Florida are just some of the other schools showing a lot of interest.

"I am open to everyone really," said Kilpatrick. "I like Ohio State, South Carolina, Georgia, Auburn, LSU and Florida. Those are the really big ones.

"Ohio State has such a great winning program and I really like their coaching staff.

"At South Carolina it's that offense and Steve Spurrier. Also, my former teammate (Jared Cook) signed there.

"Georgia is close to home and my mom could always see me play. Plus Georgia is a team I have always liked.

"Auburn is a winning program too that went unbeaten last year.

"I like the offense that Florida will run and I like their coaches a lot too.

"LSU has been one of the dominant teams and I like the location of LSU. I like that place and the coaches are cool."

Kilpatrick hopes to camp this summer at Georgia, Clemson, Auburn and LSU. He carries a 3.2 GPA and has a 1500 SAT (new test).

Note - I saw Crawford Kilpatrick play last season in the first round of the Georgia High School State Football Playoffs. He plays in a pass happy spread offense and was paired opposite Jared Cook (signed with South Carolina). They could have been the best 1-2 wide receiver tandem in the state last year. Kilpatrick is enormous and poses a mismatch with any defensive back at this level. He is every bit of 6-5 and runs well. Kilpatrick has very good hands and does all the things you ask a wide receiver to do. He just needs to continue to work on routes like all young receivers and get heavier and stronger. There is no telling how big he could actually be in a few seasons and if he could maintain or improve his speed and quickness while gaining more weight, he could become a deadly weapon and one of the top receivers (overall) in the class of 06.
