El Dorado (Kan.) Butler County C.C. four-star cornerback Rudell Crim is preparing for the biggest game of his career on Saturday when the 6-foot, 190-pounder will face off against Snow Junior College in the Top of the Mountain Bowl, which is the sanctioned national championship for junior college football.
"They're a team that really gets stronger in the second half," Crim said.
"They'll be down and then all of a sudden they come back and are stronger. You can't let down for one play against them. They're really deep, too. They have two or three guys at each position that are very talented."

Crim said he's starting to get deep into the recruiting process, too. He said Oregon coach Mike Bellotti is scheduled to visit with him sometime today at his school, plus he's got an official visit lined up to Eugene for Dec. 11.
"Oregon and coach (Chip) Kelly have been recruiting me for about two or three months now," he said. "I'm going to go up there and see what it's like for a visit. Should be a great time and a great visit."
Crim is also going to take two visits in January to Arkansas and USF. While he doesn't have a leader at this point, he does admit having Jim Leavitt recruit him for USF is something he really likes.
"It's kind of cool to have the head coach recruiting you," Crim, who is originally from the Tallahassee, Fla., area, said. "But I'm going to keep my doors open. When I take the visits, that will help me better understand what will be key for me. I would like to find a good place that really feels like home."
Crim is ranked as the No. 7 junior college player in the nation. He was recently named to the all-Jayhawk Conference team.
