"I've already been to Alabama and Mississippi State," Crawford added.
Crawford talked a bit about his time in Tuscaloosa.
"I learned a lot at Alabama," Crawford said. "It was a real good camp. I really like it over there. They have been showing interest but they haven't offered."
He was very impressed when he made his way to Mississippi State, giving his visit to Starkville high marks.
"I loved it," Crawford said. "It was fantastic. I liked it a lot. I learned a lot. I really like the defensive line coach (Chris Wilson), he treated me real well. I really like their campus and the programs that they have. Also, I met with a couple of the players and their outlook on the coaching staff, it was great. They seem like really nice people."
At this point in the process, Crawford isn't ready to narrow it down or name a favorite.
"I don't have a leader at this point," Crawford said. "I don't have a timeline right now. I don't know when I will be able to make a decision. Probably whenever I am done with taking more visits."
Crawford mentioned an interest in visiting Kentucky, Louisville, and Missouri.
