Tallahassee (Fla.) Godby defensive tackle Kareem Crowell is one of the top defensive lineman in the South. The Auburn Tigers have been his leader for months, but with coaches being able to call now and make their pitch things are starting to heat up for his services.
"I have gotten calls from more schools than I can remember," Crowell said. "Some of the ones that have called are Louisville, North Carolina, North carolina State, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Arkansas, Alabama and a whole bunch of others."
Crowell attended the NIKE camp at Tallahassee where he measured in at 6-foot-4.5, 290 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash in 5.21 seconds, had a 5.09 shuttle, a 21-inch vertical jump and did 16 reps on the bench press.
"I went to the Florida State-Miami game last week," Crowell said. "I was supposed to go to the Auburn game this weekend, but with gas prices the way they are I couldn't afford to get up there. I am still going to make it up there in a couple of weeks for a game I know, I just don't know what game specifically."
As a junior Crowell collected 59 tackles, two sacks and one tackle for loss. He also recovered to fumbles.
"Auburn is still my No. 1 school right now," Crowell said. "Clemson though is coming up fast. I would say Clemson is definitely No. 2, but they might even be tied for No. 1. Louisville, North Carolina and North Carolina State are also in my top five, but Clemson and Auburn are up at the top."
Crowell is ranked as the No. 29 player in the state of Florida and the No. 22 defensive tackle in the nation by Rivals.com.

I probably won't take any visits until December or so, it's probably going to be after the season."Here to view this Link.
