Three-star defensive lineman Nate Crawford will not be taking an official visit this weekend, but the 6-foot-4, 260-pound senior is going to drive an hour away to catch some football.
"I'm think about going to the Troy-UAB game. It's not going to be an official or anything, just want to watch both programs compete," Crawford said. "And it's close by, it's just a hour drive from here."
Crawford does have some official visits planned in the near future and he knows two of the programs he wants to see.
"Right now I have officials that I'm setting up with South Florida and Missouri," Crawford said. "Those are two programs I definitely want to see. I'm also probably going to see Kentucky, but I have to go over those plans with my mother first."
Crawford's offer sheet includes Louisville, Mississippi State, Memphis and Cincinnati. Several other programs are showing interest and waiting for film from Crawford's first few games. Those programs include Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Tennessee and Arkansas. Crawford says not to expect a decision in the near future.
"I don't want to make any decisions or eliminate any programs until I begin to see some campuses and hear back from other schools," Crawford added. "Hopefully I can take all five of my official visits."
