ScoutTV: L.D. Crow

The news is out: Stanford extended a scholarship offer to top Florida quarterback L.D. Crow. Known nationally as the "next" big gun at Clearwater (Fla.) Countryside High School, Crow has a strong arm and threw for 64% as a junior. You can get a great look at the Cardinal's quarterback offeree with these three extensive sets of clips from his 2005 season.

The rage these days in quarterback recruiting is the "dual-threat" athlete who sizzles on film as much for his scrambling and speed as for his arm.  L.D. Crow has good feet, and his junior video shows that he is a very able operator moving around and out of the pocket.  He is not a scramblin' man, however.  Crow is a pocket passer who plays in a West Coast Offense at Clearwater (Fla.) Countryside High School.  These three sets of clips show the wide variety of throws the quarterback recruit can make.

Crow has a big arm, though his high school offense rarely asks him to throw the ball deep down the field.  What you can see on film, though, is his arm strength in many of this throws.  Also evident is Crow's quick arm motion and release of the ball.
