Isaiah Crowell, UGA’s new big man on campus, arrived on campus on Tuesday, according to his high school coach.
The 5-star tailback from Carver-Columbus High School was the crown jewel of UGA’s heralded “Dream Team” recruiting class. He is projected to compete immediately for the starting position in Georgia’s offensive backfield.
Few Georgia recruits have arrived with greater fanfare or expectations. Crowell was hounded by autograph seekers, including fellow recruits, at Georgia’s spring game last April.
What advice did Carver coach Dell McGee give the star-studded prospect before he departed Columbus? The coach said he kept it simple: “I told Isaiah to just enjoy college. It’s a great experience.”
Crowell reported to college with his high school teammate who will also play football for Georgia, defensive back Quintavious “Cootie” Harrow. Crowell and Harrow have both met NCAA college entrance requirements and are listed in UGA’s student directory. They will both begin summer classes this month.
