I'm sure everyone has seen the news article with Dallas Crawford saying he might open up his recruitment. If not, here it is. I spoke to Crawford's coach today about the situation, and here's what he had to say.
Dallas may take another visit to another school, but that's it. He asked me what I thought about everything, and I told him I think Michigan is an outstanding institution to play at either way. He's said in the past that he'd go there either way.
There have been some schools, including USC, that have been trying to contact Dallas. He hasn't said if he will take another visit, and if he does which school will get that visit. It sounds like he's just making sure he has something to fall back on just in case though.
Dallas hasn't said anything about Miami and the new staff. He was shocked when he went there and they only had 27,000 fans in the stands, then you go to the Big House and it's 112,000. You should go somewhere where the people like the team. Sometimes when new coaches come in they'll let the new guys recruit their own kids, and they don't acknowledge the old staff's recruits. I just want to make sure he has somewhere to go just in case.
I've been told by others that Dallas would most likely end up at Michigan either way before. Obviously I have to throw in the fact that anything can happen, but I think this is pretty normal. He's making sure he has somewhere to go that he likes just in case he's left out in the cold.
