3-star DT plans to visit Louisville

Despite having more than 20 scholarship offers, Tallahassee Godby defensive tackle Kareem Crowell told InsideTheVille.com that three schools currently lead for his services.

With more than 20 scholarship offers, including those from programs such as Auburn, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa State, Louisville, Maryland, Nebraska and North Carolina, Tallahassee Godby defensive tackle prospect Kareem Crowell has become a hot commodity.

"I picked up a few more offers over the summer," the 6-foot-5, 285-pound Crowell said on Tuesday. "I kind of lost count, but I have twenty-something."

Crowell plays on both the offensive and defensive lines at Godby and recorded 59 tackles, including five sacks as a junior.

"We just finished two-a-day's on Friday and are now getting ready for our first game which is on August 19th," he said. "We should be pretty good this year. There's a lot of good seniors and we've been playing together since the 7th grade, so this team is ours now. I spent my summer working hard lifting weights and running to be ready for this year."

Part of the senior class that led Godby to the state playoffs last fall was current Louisville freshman cornerback E.K. Sawyerr.

"I know E.K. at Louisville and I've talked to him a couple times," Crowell said. "He says that they're going to be pretty good and that he really likes it there. He told me that I need to come check it out for myself."

However, that visit is going to have to wait as the Scout.com 3-star prospect continued to explain that wants to now turn his attention towards his senior season and then take his official visits before making a decision.

"A bunch of us are planning on visiting Louisville together, but we're going to wait until after the season," he said, also naming teammates DeAndre McDaniel, Kevin McCaskill and Kendall Williams as likely visitors to Louisville. "Coach Petrino has been trying to get us to come up there so we can see what they have. He's been recruiting us really hard, so we're all talking about doing it together."

As the start of final year of high school ball nears, Crowell claims that three school's currently stand out.

"Right now Auburn is number one and the Louisville and North Carolina are tied for second," he said. "There are still some other schools that I'm looking at like Georgia, Florida, Clemson, NC State, FSU and some others."

Crowell added that while he isn't familiar with the River City, he is familiar with the Cardinals style of play.

"I don't know much about Louisville, so I want to see what the city is like, but I do know they have good football team," he said. "I play on both offense and defense, but I'm a defensive guy and they have a really good defense."
