  • "Mississippi State, Old Dominion, Kansas State, Minnesota, Missouri are (some of the schools) interested in me," said Craig.

    Those five, as well as many other schools, have offered him.

    "I have offers from Kansas State, Louisiana Tech, ULL, Tulane, Old Dominion, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Utah, and I have probably forgotten a few," said Craig.

    After playing his entire football career in the south, it appears Craig is looking to branch out and sign with a school from the northern portion of the United States.

    "I want to get up somewhere up north, probably K-State, Old Dominion or Utah because I really like cold weather," he said. "I feel like I want to branch out because there are 49 more states."

    Whomever signs Craig will get a very talented linebacker.

    "I am quick on my feet. I like to keep moving. As long as I'm not hurting, I'm on the field somewhere," said Craig.
