Schools drop in on Crawford

Four-star point guard Bryant Crawford will be one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the 2015 class.

The top point guard in the class of 2015 is Washington (DC) Gonzaga product Bryant Crawford. The 6-foot-1 guard made plays all summer long with Team Takeover, and now he is looking to have a huge junior season.

"I've been working on a lot of things," said Crawford. "I am just trying to get my legs stronger, getting in the weight room, and also I have been working on my jump shot a lot."

Recruiting wise some of the top schools in the country have been by to see him and continue to stay in touch with him, his parents, and coaches.

"SMU, Indiana, Connecticut, Penn State, Georgetown, Kansas, Louisville, and North Carolina has also been by," said Crawford of the schools that have been by.

One program that has really made him a priority is Indiana. The Hoosiers have a longstanding connection to Crawford, and he is building a good relationship with that staff.

"Me and Coach (Kenny) Johnson have had a relationship since junior high," said Crawford. "He tried to recruit me to go to Paul VI. Our relationship has gotten stronger. He is always checking up on me as is Coach (Tom) Crean. I feel like we have a nice relationship."

With North Carolina things are just beginning to get going in the recruitment, but they have been staying in touch.

"They just came to evaluate me," said Crawford of the Tar Heels. "They stopped by for an early morning workout. I have been getting some mail from them and staying in some contact with their coaches."

For now Crawford is taking things slow, but he does know what he will be looking for in a school when the time comes to make a decision.

"Definitely school work is very important," said Crawford. "I am interested in arts and stuff like that. We look a little deeper into those programs, and then of course I look at where I think I would fit best on the court and style of play."

Currently Crawford is seen as the No. 28 overall player in the class of 2015.
