Crowton in pursuit of Luck

LSU offensive coordinator Gary Crowton has his eye on a few select quarterbacks that are at the top of the board for 2008 and one of them is Andrew Luck.

Luck, a 6-3, 205-pound signal caller out of Houston (Texas) Stratford, passed for more than 2,900 yards and 27 touchdowns as a junior.


What does he do to come up with these stellar numbers?


"I think being able to get everyone involved makes me a good quarterback," said Luck. "I think that once you have everyone believing their role in the offense is important, you can run your offense more efficiently."


The 4-star signal caller has offers from schools like LSU, Stanford, California, Northwestern, Kansas, Kansas State, Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor, Alabama, North Carolina, Duke and Florida State.


While he has offers from some of the top programs in America he isn't ready to narrow the field just yet.


"I want to narrow my decision within the next three weeks to a month," said Luck. "Right now it's wide open. I haven't made any summer camp plans because I'm going to only go visit the five teams I narrow my list to."


Assisting Crowton with recruiting Luck from LSU is Larry Porter and he talked with Porter a couple of weeks ago.


"He was just saying how he wants me and my family to come down and see what LSU has to offer," said Luck. "If LSU is in that list, then we'll definitely make it down there for a camp or something."


LSU has a couple of things working in its favor with Luck and that gives the Tigers as good of a chance as anyone else in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.


"I think LSU has a great atmosphere," he said. "I haven't been there, but I hear it is absolutely amazing. "Also, the academics at LSU are great. If you graduate from there, you get out with a pretty respected degree."


Note** Luck, who has a 6.5 GPA on a scale of 6.5 and scored 1900 on his SAT, said he is already starting to think about what he may want to take in college and Civil Engineering is a field he is looking into.
