Crenshaw More Open Now

The 5-10, 185-pound athlete from Lancaster (Calif.) Antelope Valley, Andrew Crenshaw, for the longest time had just one offer -- from UCLA. Now he's gotten a couple of more and looks like he won't make a decision for a while...

Lancaster (Calif.) Antelope Valley athlete Andre Crenshaw (5-10, 185) maintains UCLA as a slight leader, but when his official visits begin, the Bruins might not get an official trip from him.

"I went there in the summer on an unofficial visit and I went to some practices, so I got to see a lot of the school," said Crenshaw. "I think if I took another trip there, it would be an unofficial. I want to take my five trips to places that I haven't been to yet."

Already guaranteed official trips are Washington, Oregon State and Boise State. The Huskies will get a trip from Crenshaw on January 7th, the Beavers on January 14th and the Broncos on January 21st. Also in the mix for his fourth and fifth visits are Oregon, Michigan State and Washington State.

"All of those schools are pretty much even. UCLA is still my leader but not by much," said Crenshaw. "UCLA, Washington and Oregon State are my three offers, but the others could be close to offering me."

One of the sticking points for the Bruins is the staff wanting Crenshaw to play cornerback, while Crenshaw would prefer the offensive side of the ball. "UCLA said they would bring me in as an athlete, but most likely I'd play cornerback. I want to play on offense, either receiver or running back," Crenshaw said.

Recruiting Crenshaw to UCLA is quarterbacks coach Jim Svoboda.

Crenshaw said none of his in-home visits have taken place yet.

"I'm hoping to make my decision when I get back from Boise State, unless I have other visits scheduled," said Crenshaw.

The Antelopes lost in the second round of the CIF Playoffs with Crenshaw finishing the season with 1,200 yards and 16 touchdowns rushing, while also recording 60 tackles and a pair of interceptions.

Academically, Crenshaw has a 3.1 GPA and scored a 19 on the ACT.
