Is Georgia Tech in danger of losing one of its top recruits less than a week away from signing day?
DB Antonio Crawford, who has been committed to Georgia Tech since last summer, will take an official visit to Miami this weekend, according to his Facebook page. Crawford wrote that he had been offered a football scholarship by Miami and he “was going to be in MIAMI this weekend to visit The U.”
The 5-foot-11, 184-pounder is from Tampa football powerhouse of Plant High School, which produced UGA talents Aaron Murray and Orson Charles.
Georgia Tech did an intensive evaluation of Crawford at camp last summer, deciding to offer a few days later – with Crawford committing on the spot. At the time, Crawford picked the Yellow Jackets over Iowa State and Florida International.
It was good scouting by Georgia Tech because it took other schools until Crawford’s senior season to notice him, eventually leading to the reported recruiting trip to Miami on the final weekend before signing day.
Ironically, on the same day that the news broke about Crawford, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson visited with the No. 1 recruit for this year’s class – 4-star DE Francis Kallon of Central Gwinnett. “It went well,” Central Gwinnett coach Todd Wofford said. Kallon has spurned offers from Auburn and Tennessee, along with heavy interest from Alabama, Notre Dame and UGA.
In the past, Paul Johnson spoke out about “what commitment means.” Click here to read more.
