Determined to continue his football career, Crawford headed to Cisco Junior College to play running back.
Now that he has one season under his belt, Jocques has decided on where he is going to go after he finishes his eligibility at Cisco.
"Yeah, I am committed to Texas Tech," said Crawford. "I'm really excited to get down there and play division 1 football."
Over the past year, Texas Tech wasn't the only school trying to persuade the 6'0, 220 pound athlete to attend their university.
Jocques was a standout running back at Cordova High School in Memphis, TN, but the Red Raider coaching staff has a different plan for the versatile athlete.
"They are bringing me in to play strong safety. I mainly played running back in high school but I did play some safety."
So does Jocques have a problem with coming in and possibly playing a new position?
"It doesn't matter to me," said Crawford. "I just want to play."
