Great news from the Tri-Cities where Gavin Crow of Kamiakin (Kennewick, Wa.) High School has officially been offered by the University of Montana.
“Honestly a relief to see my work is starting to pay off,” Crow told NEI.
This is the first offer for the 6-foot-1, 190 pound defensive back, who could be in line for a few more. Crow is hearing regularly from schools like Eastern Washington, Wyoming, Colorado State and Portland State, while also hear the University of Washington and Oregon State.
Crow is a prospect we consider to still be on the rise, as his best days are clearly ahead of him. His ability in coverage is some of the best in the state, but he could project at any of the four defensive back spots.
In Las Vegas as part of the Barton Football 7-on-7 team, Crow came away with a few INT’s and may have not allowed a completion on the weekend, helping his team to the Elite Eight of a 101 team National tournament.
That performance propelled Crow into a great camp season where he has turned one head after another. He still plans to camp next week at Colorado State, followed by Eastern Washington at the end of the month.
As he heads into his senior season, Crow looks to help lead the Braves to better their 7-3 record of last season, where Crow received an Honorable Mention.
“This year I’m just going to play the game as hard and as fast as I can, the rest will take care of itself,” Crow said. “The one award I would love to win again is KHS Special Teams Player of the Year. I love playing all special teams and I felt some of my best plays came during kick coverage and kick returns.”
Time will tell with Crown, but I feel this could be the opening of the recruiting flood gates. We will be sure to keep you updated on everything
