Fayetteville (NC) OL/DL Curtis Crouch received his first scholarship offer in early March from NC State, but since then several programs have been expressing interest with two extending full scholarship offers.

"Oklahoma offered me a full scholarship, and ECU just did too," Crouch said. "The Sooners talked with me last week and will be down to see me on Friday. I'm going to consider them even though it's pretty far away."

"My coach told me Oklahoma said they are going to recruit me harder than NC State, so I know they are interested in me."

Curtis told StateFans that NC State, Oklahoma, and Tennessee are currently his top three schools. NC State has led early in his recruitment, but with Oklahoma extending an offer do they still have the upperhand?

"A lot of them have come by my school. Virginia Tech, Georgia, NC State, UNC, Duke, and some other ones too. Right now NC State, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Georgia, and Virginia are the ones who I'm looking at."

"Well, NC State's still my favorite," he said. "It's the only place that I've been to and so I can't really say I like anyone else better than them."

"Coach Cignetti and Chuck Amato have been by my school and they have recruited me real hard. With them being the first to offer me it shows that they want me a lot. I have friends up there and they think it is a great place."

Earlier Curtis had mentioned camping at NC State and Tennessee, but those plans have been put on hold for the time being.

"I'm not going to any camps now because I'm going to summer school so I can pull up my GPA."

Crouch says that most of his suitors are looking at him to play the offensive line with the exceptions being North Carolina and Virginia, who like him on the defensive side of the ball.

As of now an early decision is still being considered so that he can concentrate on his final year at E.E. Smith.

"I'm going to take my official visits after I do the ACTs and that's when I'm going to cut it down," he said. "I kind of want to go ahead and choose before the season so I can have a good year and work on my grades."
