Isaiah Crowell has “left the building” at Carver-Columbus High School, awaiting the opportunity to save the world at UGA.
Crowell left behind plenty of talented teammates at Carver-Columbus, which is known for producing college football prospects on an annual basis. Carver had 20 seniors sign last Febraury and expects another strong batch this year.
One of Carver’s top 2012 prospects is Derious Bennett, a 6-foot-1, 275-pound defensive tackle who said he has around a dozen offers, including Arkansas, Wake Forest, Tennessee, Southern Miss, Duke, Houston and Marshall.
Bennett has nothing but praise for his former heralded teammate, Crowell.
“Isaiah is an amazing football player,” Bennett said. “He has tremendous character and is real humble. I think Georgia fans are going to be excited about what he does for them this season.”
Asked if there was anything that Georgia fans would be surprised to learn about Crowell as a person or football player, Bennett replied, “No, not really. Isaiah doesn’t leave much to figure out. He speaks his mind about things. He was a great leader for us, with both his actions and his words.”
Back to Bennett: He visited Southern Miss and Auburn this summer, along with attending camps at Wake Forest and Duke. He is favoring Southern Miss, but will likely wait until the middle or after his senior season to make his college decision. He is happy with his list of offers, but wouldn’t mind being evaluated by UGA, Clemson and Florida.
Bennett has a 3.0 and plans to study Marine Biology.
