Tyrone Crowder still considering all options

Four-star offensive guard Tyron Crowder from Rockingham (N.C.) Richmond County High contends that there isn't much new going on in recruiting right now. The 6-foot-2, 315 pounder, who is ranked as the No. 8 recruit in the state, the No. 9 guard in the country and the No. 236 overall player in the land, is still considering all of his suitors, but hopes to change that in the near future.

"Right now, I'm just in the process of trying to narrow down my list to possibly three," he said. "There's isn't really anything [new] right now, it's kind of slow. I'm still considering everybody, I have no idea right now who is going to make it."

Crowder, who did not talk about a timeline for cutting down his list, has been to Raleigh on unofficial trips a few times, and offensive line coach Jim Bridge is leading the charge for the Wolfpack.

"[I talk to him] every now and then," Crowder said. "Coach Bridge is a great coach, but he hasn't really been around lately. He knows what he's doing and he's a fun coach.

"NC State has a nice facility and a great program with some physical guys."

Although the big man lines up at left tackle for his prep squad, he'll probably make the move inside to guard on the next level and that's fine with Crowder.

"I'm open to it, I'd rather play guard," the 2013 Under Armour All-American game selection said.

Crowder's list of offers reads like a who's who of college football, and while he wouldn't indicate which way he was leaning, he did talk about who he thinks is recruiting him the hardest.

"There's a couple of schools recruiting me the hardest right now, like UNC, Georgia, Clemson and Auburn," he said. "It's good that those schools are recruiting me hard."
