Crosby Interested in Michigan, Hopes to Visit

Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes High 2017 DT Eric Crosby talks Michigan interest and more.

Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes High 2017 DT Eric Crosby already holds notable offers from Alabama, Tennessee and Ohio State among others. His offer list should continue to grow as he enters his junior campaign.

And while Michigan has showed light interest so far in his recruitment, the four-star standout says he’s still interested in the Wolverines despite low communication with the coaching staff this summer.

“I definitely would like to check out all of their facilities,” Crosby said on a potential visit to U-M. “I definitely want to go to one their practices, so I can see how the coaches interact with the players. Just be able to get the full experience of Michigan football while I’m up there.

“I would like to talk to and see if they were interested in me, where would they put me on the field. How many position players are there, and how young they are. Maybe even get an offer from them.”

And if Michigan were to offer, Crosby says it would “mean a lot” in his recruitment.

“It would proved to people that my hard work and dedication is finally paying off,” he said. “If I get that offer, I got to keep working harder and harder.”

Crosby has already been on campus visits to Tennessee, Ohio State and Florida State. He says he’ll be taking another trip to Tennessee in Sept., and will also attend N.C. State for a game day experience this fall.

But one thing is for certain, Crosby says coaching will be a major factor in his decision making process.

“It will definitely be the coaching staff,” he said. “My coaching staff here at Ocean Lakes in Virginia Beach, we have a great coaching staff. The coaches here are cool, laid back, chill and they know what they are talking about. I like coaches I can relate to, get along with, stuff like that.”
