Prospect Ranking...4-star prospect and No. 18 OL in the nation by Scout.com...No. 8 OT in the nation by Tom Lemming...No. 7 player in NC, No. 21 OL in the nation and All-American by SuperPrep
Accomplishments...Started as RT and DT for EE Smith and helped lead team to playoffs. Selected to the Shrine Bowl
NC State recruiter...Curt Cignetti...Academics...Has work to do
The recruiting scene....Had numerous scholarship offers but seemed to favor NC State to some degree throughout the process. Made official visits to Oklahoma, Florida and NC State and committed to the Pack during his visit on Jan 14. Former teammate Demarcus Tyler is friends with Crouch and that certainly played a role in Crouch choosing NC State.
Scouting Report...Crouch possesses a great frame but will need some time in a strength and conditioning program before he's ready to contribute on the collegiate level. Has a world of potential that could emerge as a major contributor for State under the guidance of OL coach Mike Barry. Moves well for his size but as with most offensive line prospects, will need to get more aggressive and more consistent on the D-1 level.
