Much of the undefeated start to Dallas (Texas) Carter's season should be credited to the play of quarterback Michael Crabtree who is being looked at as a pure athlete at the college level for good reason. Crabtree is a one man, offensive machine who is doing it on the ground and through the air.
So far on the season, the 6-foot-1, 190-pound athlete has put together 356 yards and six touchdowns on the ground. The stats don't stop there. His passing totals have also been impressive with 359 yards and three touchdowns through the air. It's no wonder colleges such as Colorado, Illinois, Kansas State, Michigan State, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Wisconsin extended offers.
Crabtree has a hard time remembering all the stats from game-to-game.
"I usually don't keep up with my totals, but I think I had five carries last game for 120 yards and two touchdowns," Crabtree said. "Then I think I had 80 or 90 yards passing. I'm doing alright."
Colleges agree with his ability to do so many things well that several positions are possible for Crabtree at the next level. Within the next few days, he will start to figure out where he's headed for trips this fall.
"I'm going to call Michigan State, Illinois, and Arizona State for sure," Crabtree said. "Texas Tech, I think that will be one too, but I don't know yet."
"I do know I'll take all of my visits before I decide."
Crabtree, the No. 91 overall prospect in Texas and the No. 54 rated athlete, is staying open and has no favorite teams at this point.
