Who: Columbus (GA) running back Isaiah Crowell. MaxPreps’ sixth-ranked tailback and 55th-ranked player overall.
What’s the big deal: Crowell is one of the more impressive backs to come out of the state of Georgia in recent memory. He already has great size but when combined with his impressive speed, it’s hard not to be impressed when takes the handoff. Some have compared him to Alabama’s Trent Richardson and others to LaDainian Tomlinson coming out high school.
When: He will commit on Signing Day at 1:30 ET on ESPNU.
Considering: Alabama and Georgia.
Best guess: Georgia. The talk of Georgia assembling a ‘Dream Team’ of recruits for the class of 2011 has come true in the eyes of many with defensive end Ray Drew, tight end Jay Rome and corner Damian Swann among the notable commitments to the Bulldogs in recent weeks. Most of the talent making up Georgia’s class is from Georgia and it’s a good bet that Crowell’s name is latest on the list come Signing Day.
