Sam Crawford Ready To Emerge, Talks Michigan

2017 Rockwall (Tex.) wide out Sam Crawford is ready to break out this upcoming season and hopes plenty of programs take notice including the University of Michigan.

2017 Rockwall (Tex.) wide receiver Sam Crawford had only nine catches for 138-yards and one touchdown a season ago.

This time around, Crawford will be relied upon to be a top target for their offense, a role he’s more than ready to embrace.

“We’re looking good,” Crawford told The Michigan Insider. “We lost a lot of seniors, but we have a lot of young talent. I’m looking to have a huge season. Our senior receivers are gone and I’m the No. 1 target. I’ve put in a lot of great work this off-season.”

Despite being ranked as the No. 27 wide receiver in the nation and a four-star prospect by Scout.com, Crawford has yet to land an offer, but has already began to receive interest from several schools.

“No offers yet, but I’ve been in contact with schools like Oklahoma State, Purdue and SMU,” said Crawford.

One school Crawford is hoping to hear from is Michigan, getting set to begin Jim Harbaugh's first season in charge of the Wolverines.

“I haven’t really heard from Michigan,” said Crawford. “Yeah, I am most definitely interested in them. I like Coach Harbaugh, it is a winning school and great players are there year in and year out too.”

If the Wolverines were to extend a scholarship out to Crawford, it would truly be an honor.

“It'd mean so much,” said Crawford. “Just getting offered from a great school like Michigan would be a privilege. I would want to visit in the future.”
