Top linebacker in no rush to make choice

While the trend is for high school football players to make their college choices earlier and earlier - several local juniors already have announced their picks - North Point All-Met linebacker Conner Crowell is in no rush.

"I think all the schools I have right now will wait for me," said Crowell, who is 6 feet 1 and 215 pounds. "And if they don't, I'll just choose another school."

Crowell attracted plenty of attention last season as he made 100 tackles, intercepted four passes and had four sacks as the Eagles had an undefeated regular season.

Crowell holds eight scholarship offers and visited half of those schools this spring, taking trips to Maryland, North Carolina, Ohio State and West Virginia.

Rutgers, Duke, Connecticut and Hawaii also have offered and - although it might seem more cost efficient to make an official, college-paid visit - Crowell said he plans to visit Hawaii this summer. His parents are from the islands and he has a cousin who is a graduate assistant coach there.

This spring, Crowell is participating in track and field. He throws the shotput and discus - no surprise there - and also is the biggest 100-yard sprinter on the track.

"Yeah, definitely the biggest guy out there running it," he said with a chuckle.
