Gonzaga (DC) standout Bryant Crawford is one of the top point guards in the country, and he has been playing well on the AAU circuit with Team Takeover. Playing alongside fellow top point guard Kevin Dorsey, Crawford is averaging 11.8 points, 3.9 assists, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.5 assists on the EYBL circuit.

"I started slow, but I'm getting used to the tempo," said Crawford. "My teammates have kept me involved, and I've picked it up on the offensive and defensive end."

Scout.com currently has Crawford rated the No. 7 point guard and No. 51 overall recruit in the 2015 class. At 6-foot-2 and 185 pounds, he has very good size for the position, a positive college coaches have pointed out to him.

"They talk about that all the time," said Crawford. "Being a big point guard, I can see the floor and score."

Crawford has a lengthy list. He is hearing from Indiana, Louisville, Georgetown, Maryland, West Virginia, Wake Forest, and NC State among others.

While NC State hasn't offered, Crawford pointed out that their interest level is high.

"I've talked to them a few times already," he said of the Wolfpack. "They are going to start recruiting me harder. They said they are going to get out in July and see me play some more.

"I hope they offer me."

Crawford's interest is mutual. He has a couple of former AAU teammates in Raleigh, and that led to him watching the Wolfpack often this past season.

"I've watched them a lot this year with the Takeover guys down there, BeeJay and Lennard," he stated. "I really like their style of play. I think I'd fit perfectly there. Their guards facilitate a lot and they also get out in transition and run the floor."

Don't expect a quick decision from Crawford, as he plans to allow his recruitment to progress over the summer.

"I'm going to take it slow," he said. "I want to see what all happens."
