In the 2008 recruiting class New Jersey we bring you Jack Crawford a cookie cutter of the new defensive end, a prototype at 6' 6" 250 pounds with great strength, Crawford can bench press a cool 300 pounds and has a reported squat of 425 pounds couple that with a forty time of 4.55 and you get a man not easy to handle.

Crawford is a double shot for teams to handle, from his defensive end position Crawford is tough to handle as he has one of the best burst in New Jersey as evident by his 16 sacks and a ton of quarter back pressures in 2007. Teams thinking they can rest their now on defense are for a rude and frighting awaking as on offense Crawford lines up at wide receiver.

The game of football is new to Crawford and the reason colleges have lined up to recruit Crawford is he so raw. Maryland, Rutgers, Akron, Michigan, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh, North Western, Penn. State, Arizona, Have all offered. Crawford has only been playing football for 2 years, his dad brought him to America from London with a chance to pursue a career in basketball and he was talked into playing football and may never look back. Crawfords dad was a tremendous cricket player but that is not for him.

Crawford hopes to get his visa straighten out so he can get back to London and make it to the Rutgers camp.

With a GPA of 3.1 Crawford hopes to get into a college that stresses education and he wants to study business and marketing in college.

Crawford will take his time in making a decision for the next four years sop a early verbal is not likely.
