Largo's Rising Junior Visits The Bulls

With dozens of prospects at Raymond James Stadium for when the Bulls took on Florida Atlantic this past weekend, Largo (Fla.) High junior, Jonathan Crawford, made the trip with several of his teammates and speaks to about the experience he had in Tampa Bay.

Largo (Fla.) High has numerous Division I athletes throughout their roster this season. After graduating five seniors that will possibly be playing football at the next level next fall, Largo will rely on a soon-to-be senior for 2014, 6-foot-2, 185-pound defensive back, Jonathan Crawford.

Crawford took a visit to South Florida this past weekend and spoke to about the experience he had in Tampa Bay, Fla.

"My visit was a great experience," Crawford said. "It was good to get out and talk to the coaches. I got the invite through the mail to go and I had a good time.

With over a year until signing day for the rising junior, Crawford has collected three offers so far and has interest in a pair of schools.

"Right now I have offers from Indiana, Connecticut and Middle Tennessee State," Crawford said. "I like Florida State and Alabama too."

Having Largo's Frankie Hernandez and Jarvis Stewart in the fold for South Florida for 2014, receiving an offer from the Bulls would go a long way with the skilled defensive back.

"They'd probably be a top school," Crawford said. "It's really close to him and they're going be good the next couple years. I know a lot of players their recruiting from some of the neighborhoods. It'd feel good."

As for visits, Crawford could be booked the next two weeks, but isn't exactly sure as of yet.

"Georgia Tech wants me to visit this weekend, but I'm not sure if I'll able to make it or not," Crawford said. "I'm hopefully going to the Miami and USF game. I think it might be me, Donavan Hale and Cordell Hudson, but I don't really know for sure though."

When Jonathan and his family sit down and make their decision, a trio of factors will help him come to his collegiate choice.

"The relationship with the coaching staff, the school spirit and academics," Crawford said. "I want to get the feeling that I belong somewhere."

With under a handful of offers on the Largo star's plate, Crawford has an idea on how he wants his recruitment to play out.

"I really want to wait until I get more offers," Crawford said. "Right now, it's limited. I want to see what else I get and go from there."
