Four-star cornerback Kenneth Crawley out of Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson has made a decision. The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder has decided to head to the SEC.
"He went on a visit today and committed to Tennessee," H.D. Woodson assistant Wayne Johnson said. "It came down to several schools, he was liking Georgia a lot, loving Georgia, but I think it really came down to those schools.
"He liked what he saw from both programs and liked Tennessee more."
What made him pick the Volunteers?
"He said he wanted to play on the highest level," he said. "It's no knock on the ACC, Big Ten or others, but he wanted to play in the SEC. It's always been a dream of his and he fit it right, that's what he wanted.
"The coaches loved him. He talked a lot to his recruiting coach and talked to Coach Dooley regularly. It was good for him to talk to the head coach. Also, his defensive back coach kept showing him the love."
Johnson went in-depth on what the Vols are getting in Crawley.
"That kid is going in the league if he does what he is supposed to do and learn that system," he said. "He's pretty fast, an agile cat and an athlete. He's got knowledge of the game, knows down and distance and knows how to play with leverage. He's got at reading and the three-step drop. He's a good, tall cornerback and Tennessee landed a real good one. I've been at H.D. Woodson 19 years and I've coached a lot of guys, 28 players have played in the NFL and he's probably in the top two."
