"I know they were busy, they were in spring ball, and I just sat back on it and coach (James) Coley left me a voice mail and I talked to him so I now have an offer from Florida State."
Crane, a 6-foot-3, 313-pound three-star prospect, also has offers from Colorado, San Diego State and Washington. The Seminoles are definitely in the picture and the Santa Margarita Catholic standout said he wants to visit either this summer or during the season.
"For any kid, Florida State is just huge," Crane said.
"It's one of the schools growing up, you talk about top-tier, Florida State is definitely a top-tier program. It was an awesome thing for me when I got the news. I'm definitely thinking about visiting there and I'm excited to get out there. I'm serious about it."
