***2/2/2011 UPDATE: Isaiah Crowell signed with the Georgia Bulldogs today, and busted out an English Bulldog puppy in the process! See video of Isaiah Crowell’s (and his puppy’s) announcement here…***
With National Signing Day now just a month away, Carver High School’s Isaiah Crowell may be the best undecided high school player left in the 2011 class.
The 5’11”, 210 pound running back from Columbus, Georgia claims offers from virtually every big program in the country, and has recently narrowed his list down to three schools: Georgia, Alabama, and Auburn.
Unlike some of the nation’s other top football prospects participating in Wednesday’s Under Armour All-American Game, Crowell reportedly doesn’t plan to announce where he’ll be taking his 4.43 speed next fall, leaving fans the (dis)pleasure of employing, however poorly, the skills of his namesake until the first Wednesday in February.
Nevertheless, as you can see from the above tweet, Isaiah may have just given those monitoring his recruitment a little hint at where he’ll be playing his college football, or at least which program leads for his coveted signature at the moment.
Chip Towers, who covers recruiting for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, followed up the above tweet with another lovely little tidbit, claiming Crowell went on to compare himself to South Carolina’s Marcus Lattimore in terms of being a “difference-maker” that can quickly change a program’s fortunes.
Now, a lot can change in 30 days, especially when it comes to the sentiment of 17 and 18 year-olds, but for now it appears Crowell might be a Dawg — or at least enjoys teasing them. After suffering its first losing season since 1996, Georgia — not to mention coach Mark Richt — could certainly use all the help they can get.
If you’ve never seen Isaiah Crowell in action, make the jump to see why he’s ESPN’s #1 RB (#5 Overall), Scout’s #2 RB (#6 Overall), and Rivals’ #5 RB (#29 Overall).
