Crawford (6-2, 1846, 4.5) traveled to Baton Rouge for an unofficial visit and he had two objectives on his mind.
"I wanted to see a good game between two great teams and to tell coach Miles I wanted to be a Tiger," Crawford told Tiger Rag.
Crawford said he met with Miles before the game and told him of the good news.
"I told him I really wanted to be a part of his program and this is where I want to be," said Crawford. "He said I made a great choice and he was real excited."
It is rare for one of the top athletes in Alabama to spurn both in state powers Alabama and Auburn so what was it that persuaded Crawford to select LSU?
"Well, they have a great team and great facilities," he said. "They also have a great coaching staff that I get along with really well. I feel like I can go in early and get a lot of playing time too. So there were a bunch of reasons I chose LSU."
LSU recruiting coordinator and tight ends coach Josh Henson recruited Crawford for the Tigers and he got a little help from two former Mobile prep stars.
"I've been knowing JaMarcus Russell and Chevis Jackson all my life and they both always talked about how much they liked it at LSU," Crawford said.
LSU fans may get a little nervous between now and signing day because the Mobile product said he might take some other visits.
What he does have to say to those fans when they worry about him wavering on his pledge?
"If I take a visit it is just to look and take a trip," he said. "I know where I want to be and it is at LSU."
For now, Crawford said he is putting recruiting on the back burner because he has some business to take care of at Davidson. Through nine games, he said he has totaled over 20 catches for more than 600 yards and six scores.
"I haven't had as many touches because of the double teams but we're 9-0 and ranked third in the state," he said. "We're about to make a run in the playoffs and finish up strong hopefully with a state championship."
