Crouching on Favorites

Massive Fayetteville (N.C.) E.E. Smith offensive lineman <b>Curtis Crouch</b> is earning offers quickly as the word grows about him. However, one team has jumped out to the lead thanks to several factors.

Curtis Crouch Profile

"It is really doing well. Oklahoma, East Carolina, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and I think those are the schools that have offered," says the 6-foot-6, 320 pounder. "Florida, I like their school down there, too but they haven't offered. I like Oklahoma and NC State the most right now."

While Crouch likes the Sooners, with Oklahoma being so far away it could really hurt their chances.

"The fact that my parents won't be making to every game because of distance and because I wouldn't know anybody that far away, it will affect my decision. NC State has an edge right now because of the distance, because distance is a big thing for me."

While distance is a big issue, it is not the overriding issue for Crouch.

"My parents want me to have a good education, and be taken care of on and off the field."

Crouch would like to wait through the summer and possibly even longer as he wants to give schools more of an opportunity to find out about the big man. He will not have much of an opportunity this summer to show off his skill during summer camps.

"I'm going to summer school and night school right now, so I doubt I will really have time to go anywhere. If I do go anywhere, it will be somewhere close, like NC State."
