Class of 2004: Paul Crews

Henderson (N.C.) Northern Vance Cornerback Paul "Primetime" Crews could be the top cover corner in North Carolina this season, possessing terrific speed, athleticism, and confidence. <p> Currently he's looking at five programs that are coming off terrific recruiting hauls.

"My top 5 would be Virginia, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Miami, and Florida State," Crews said. "With Virginia, I have grown really close to Coach Prince and the UVA program, and they're headed in the right direction. At UNC Coach Bunting has done a lot for them, and they have a young team as well."

"NC State is on the way to become a national powerhouse with a great season last year, and with another big season Coach Amato will have what he want's and thats the big one."

"Miami is the best team with the best athletes in the country. This was my dream school, and I like how they play with swagger. At FSU Coach Bowden is one of the greatest coaches ever, and the Seminoles have been the best overall college program for a long time."

Paul denies a leader at the moment, but is impressed by the attention one school is showing him.

"Virginia is showing alot of interest and that's impressive," he said. "I don't have any official offers yet, but I really think the Cavaliers are about to. They are after me hard."

"Primetime" is coming off a terrific junior season where his 96 tackles and 8 interceptions garnered all-area and all-conference honors. He was also selected to attend the prestigious Army All-American Bowl Junior Combine but was unable to attend. He does plan on making a few camps this spring though.

"I'll be going to the Nike Camp at Virginia Tech on May 17th," Crews said. "I also will be camping at Virginia, North Carolina, and State. At these camps I'll get to show off my speed and cover skills. All the schools will know that "Primetime" is back!"

The confident Crews hopes to make a decision before signing day, so early offers will be noted.

"I want to decide either before or after my season, but I don't think I'll wait until signing day. I'll remember the schools that choose to offer me early."
