Crummie is a little back with a big heart

After an All-Conference season in 2005 for Los Angeles Southwest College, RB Darryll Crummie seemed to be headed toward more post season honors and a future at a D-1 school, but things haven't worked out exactly how Crummie had planned.

"We had a tough year this year," Crummie told "Our line was pretty inexperienced and it was tough getting yards."

Crummie finished with a little over 500 yards on the ground and totaled seven touchdowns for the Cougars.

On the recruiting front, because of Crummie's size – he goes 5-7, 175 – he hasn't gotten a lot of looks as a running back.

"Schools have told me I'm probably too small to play running back," Crummie said. "Most of the schools that are talking to me want me at corner, but I haven't played there since high school so I'm not really hearing from a lot of schools right now."

The schools that have been contacting Crummie are D-2 schools like Henderson State (offer) and Wichita State and Lane College.

"Boise State came out to my school last week and seemed pretty interested in me," Crummie said. "Idaho was recruiting me a lot, but with coach (Dennis) Erickson leaving I'm not really sure they're recruiting me anymore. Utah and Missouri are two other schools who've asked for film so we'll see what happens."

Crummie sports a 4.35 forty time and a 10.6 100 meters and said he can run inside or outside depending on the situation.

"I'm small but I'm stronger than people give me credit for," Crummie said. "Hopefully someone will give me a chance."

Crummie will graduate in December and will have three years to play two at the next level.
