Darious Crawley does a little bit of everything for Cypress Ridge High School in Houston, Texas. He played quarterback as a sophomore and junior, using his speed and quickness to make plays for the offense.
As a senior he spends the majority of his time at wide receiver. He works both inside and outside, and is always a threat to throw in double pass situations.
"I enjoy it. I feel like I can be a big threat out there," Crawley said. "It kind of makes defenses spread out a lot more with me out there. I actually like it. I like being out there."

He is also a return man for punts and kickoffs. He does it all.
The ability to do so many things with the ball in his hand has caught the attention of college coaches. Offers have come in from Colorado State, Houston, Iowa State, Kansas, Louisiana-Lafayette, Rice, Texas State, and UTSA.
Houston, Rice, Colorado State, and Kansas have been showing the most attention by sending mail, contacting via Facebook and Twitter, and phone calls.
At this point he does not list any favorites and does not have any visits scheduled at this point. Could either of the above change soon?
"I probably won't start leaning or favoring anyone until after I take some official visits," Crawley said. "I don't have any actual dates right now, but I'm sure I'll start setting them towards the middle or the end of the season."
For now Crawley is focused on the season. Cypress Ridge is currently 1-2 on the season and Crawley has recorded 17 receptions for 361 yards and 3 touchdowns and 11 carries for 32 yards.
