Recruiting: Sooners offer Dallas athlete

Dallas, Texas athlete Michael Crabtree talks about his early list and interest in Oklahoma.

Michael Crabtree, ATH, 6-2, 200, 4.47, DALLAS (CARTER HS), TEXAS:

Mike Crabtree is one of the best-kept secrets in Texas. Crabtree plays mostly quarterback, but he so athletic that college coaches debate where he will play in college. Can you say Mark Bradley? Crabtree doesn't have Bradley's pure speed, but he can run.

As a sophomore Crabtree played receiver, running back, quarterback, cornerback and safety. And as a junior Crabtree played quarterback and safety. This year Crabtree played quarterback, cornerback safety and he returned punts.

"Playing all these positions has been cool in high school," said Crabtree. "I could play quarterback in college, but I really see myself at receiver, especially if I plan on playing my first year."

Last season Crabtree rushed for 500 yards and he passed for over 800 yards while scoring eight touchdowns. He can bench 270 pounds and he has posted a 34-inch vertical jump.

Crabtree played summer basketball and didn't get to go to any football camps. He has been offered by 23 schools and at this point has no favorites.

"I like six or seven schools right now, but it seems to change every week," said Crabtree. "I like Illinois, Arizona, Kansas State, Iowa and Texas Tech. I just got offered by Oklahoma, but I haven't talked to them that much. I will have to wait and see about Oklahoma. I like the school, but I just haven't talked to them that much."
