Crouch Takes Unofficial Visit to NC State

Fayetteville (NC) E.E. Smith Lineman Curtis Crouch has been receiving major interest from programs across the country and last week he visited NC State, the team he has consistently named his favorite.

"I went to NC State last Thursday for an unofficial," Curtis Crouch told Pack Pride. "It went well... I liked it a lot. I watched them practice and talked to some friends I know on the team. They showed me around the buildings, and I learned about the academic situation at State. I talked to Coach Amato, Coach Cignetti, and Coach 'B' the offensive line coach... it was great to see them."

Considering the Wolfpack has been his favorite throughout the process, did Curtis commit to NC State?

"No, I didn't commit because I want to take some more visits first," he said. "I told them maybe after the football season."

Crouch pointed out that recruiting has been going well for him and now that his senior season is almost underway it is time to take care of business.

Curtis Crouch is considered a top 10 prospect in North Carolina by the recruiting gurus and is arguably the state's top offensive line prospect.

"Things are going well for me," he said. "We just finished our spring workouts and tomorrow is our first official practice. I'm going to play three-technique on defense and the offensive line too. Everything's good right now... I'm just ready to play."

His versatility, size, strength, and quickness has drawn the attention of the nation's elite programs, as evidenced by his top five schools. With offers from all his favorites except Miami, Crouch still has NC State at the top of his list.

"I'm mainly looking at NC State, Oklahoma, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, and Miami's talking to me too," he said. "NC State's probably my favorite. It's the only school that I've been to, and they have been recruiting me the hardest. I'm probably favoring on their side because they are close to home and everything."

What will be the major factor in his final decision?

"It had been distance but my parents have said it wouldn't be a problem so I'm looking more at the academic programs and what the school has to offer me in the offseasonm," Crouch said.
