OL Lucas Crowley (6-3 275) of Ponte Vedra, FL has offers from USC and Missouri with interest from Florida, Florida State, Alabama, South Florida, Georgia Tech and West Virginia among others. Crowley took in USC's junior day Saturday and walked away impressed with the coaching staff.
"I really like South Carolina a lot and I really like their coaches," Crowley said. "I've been to a few games up there so I'm familiar with that aspect of it but this is the first time I've been to a practice. I really like how the coaches interact with the players. They are really enthusiastic."
Crowley named USC, Alabama, Florida and FSU as schools of interest. "It does mean something to me that South Carolina has already offered," he admitted. "They are showing a lot of trust in me to offer without seeing me in person (at a camp)."
He plans to visit Florida for the second time this spring next week and hopes to take trips to USF and Georgia Tech as well. Over the summer, Crowley could attend camps at FSU, Alabama, Florida and West Virginia.
Though he does not have a timetable for a decision he did say, "I would not be afraid to make an early commitment." Crowley did not name a leader.
