Michigan Football’s 2015 recruiting class is already off to a great start with commitments from George Campbell and Damien Harris. On Aug. 23, 4-star defensive back Shaun Crawford (Lakewood, Ohio) will announce his commitment. Michigan and Miami seem to be the frontrunners, but Michigan is in the driver’s seat here. Crawford was in town for the BBQ at the Big House and has long been considered a Michigan lean.
Crawford is ranked as the #3 player in the state of Ohio and #49 overall by ESPN. Here’s an excerpt of his scouting report from ESPN.
A versatile athlete that shows good playmaking ability. Elusive in his movements and does a nice job making defenders miss with the ball in hands…Displays good speed and quickness and a good second gear. Has a natural feel on defense as a corner. Biggest upside may be here…Crawford is an athletic player with natural skill set…He’s a natural, instinctive playmaker.
As a sophomore, Crawford tallied 420 receiving yards with 5 touchdowns. On defense, he recorded 56 tackles and 2 interceptions.
