Antonio Crawford Commits to the U

Antonio Crawford, a DB out of Tampa Plant High School, has verbally committed to the University of Miami. 

Crawford, who was one of four uncommitted prospects visiting the U this weekend, said "Miami felt like home, so I [he] committed."  He mentions the thought of committing while on his visit and how hard it was not to do so.  Crawford "wanted to talk things over with his family and just make sure that they were okay with Miami."

He hopes to see the other remaining uncommitted players who were also on the visit (Tracy Howard, Darius Hamilton, and Josh Clemons) also commit to Miami.  Said Crawford, "I want all those guys to come to Miami with me so we can do some great things together and bring the U back."

Crawford (5-11, 175) had 52 tackles and five interceptions as a senior. 

His only other offers were from Ohio, Ball State, and FIU.

It has been rumored that Crawford's scholarship would be revoked by Georgia Tech (where he was committed) head coach Paul Johnson if he took his visit to Miami.

Welcome to the U.
