Childhood favorite offers Cravens


As athlete Sua Cravens (Murrieta, Calif./Vista Murrieta) racked up new offers by the week, one school was noticeably absent. That changed on Wednesday when Cravens landed an offer from his childhood favorite.

Cravens is nearing 20 scholarship offers and is hearing from schools all over the country. The standout junior had yet to hear from the school closest to home but that changed Wednesday.

“USC just offered me,” Cravens said. “Every school has offered me for defense so far, but USC offered as a fullback/H-back type. They said they want to use me the same way they used Stanley Havili, where I would run the ball some and catch the ball out of the backfield.

“I definitely prefer defense, but I still have a lot of interest in USC. That’s the school I rooted for growing up, I was a pretty big fan. I love everything about the school so it’s going to be a tough decision. I’ll have to decide if I want to play for my childhood favorite or play the position I love the most in college.”

Cravens said Kennedy Pola is the coach recruiting him from the Trojans.

“No matter where I go, it’s still very flattering to have an SC offer,” Cravens said. “Right now, I can’t believe how much interest I’m getting as a junior. I never expected this but it’s an exciting time for me and I definitely feel blessed for sure.”
