Charlotte (N.C.) Harding four-star athlete Quavaris Crouch has visited Clemson multiple times, including twice this year.
Before visiting to watch one of Clemson’s spring practices at the end of March, he attended the program’s junior day at the beginning of the month and left with an offer from the Tigers.
“When you get an offer from Clemson, they actually commit to you, so it really means a lot,” Crouch told TCI recently.
Crouch, one of the most highly regarded prospects in the 2019 class, also visited for the Louisville and South Carolina games last season after competing in the Dabo Swinney Camp last summer.
“The good thing at Clemson, when I go there I really feel like I’m at home,” Crouch said. “I’m very comfortable being there. I talk to everybody frequently, so it’s good.”
The junior day afforded Crouch his first look at the completed football operations facility.
“That thing’s awesome,” he said. “Then they have the (national championship) trophy right there as soon as you walk in. A lot of places don’t have good facilities at this level, but Clemson is far the best.”
As a sophomore, Crouch rushed for 1,224 yards and 17 touchdowns in 10 games while averaging 7.3 yards per attempt.
Clemson sees Crouch as a running back or potentially linebacker at the next level.
“They offered me as an athlete,” Crouch said. “They don’t know how big I’m going to get, so it just depends on if I play running back there or linebacker.”
Crouch’s offer sheet includes Alabama, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, Michigan State, Nebraska, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, South Carolina, Stanford, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
Academics and player development are two factors Crouch is looking closely at in his choices. He says he has plenty of research to do before he can begin to narrow down his recruitment.
“I’ve still got to do my homework on everybody and figure it out because giving four years to a school, that’s really dedicating yourself a lot to somebody,” he said. “So, you want to make the best decision as possible.”
