Quavaris Crouch, a five-star recruit from Charlotte (N.C.) has provided an update on who he might be leaning towards.
Crouch has schools like Alabama, Clemson, Michigan, Georgia and others on his list and is widely considered one of the top athletes in the class of 2019, ranking No. 9 overall according to Rivals.
This week, the 6-foot-3, 222 pound athlete revealed two schools that sit at the top of his list, and one may reign supreme – if it weren’t for the weather.
?I would say Michigan is No. 1, but the weather is crazy,? Crouch said. ?I feel like Michigan and Clemson are tied for No. 1.? https://t.co/EYVdruCxBv

What to watch for in Crouch’s recruitment
Crouch has upcoming visits planned to Michigan (Nov. 3), Clemson (Nov. 17) and Alabama (Dec. 7).
Michigan gets the first crack to impress Crouch and leave a lasting mark on him and his family when he visits the Big House and watches the Wolverines take on Penn State.
He has also hinted at other plans – a potential position change – for whatever college team winds up receiving a commitment.
In the article from The Charlotte Observer, Crouch stated,
?For me, I think it?s a business decision I?m making, more longevity. I think it sets me up for the goal I?m having. I?m not saying I won?t ever run the ball again, I?m just saying I think I want to play linebacker. I do want to hop on the other side sometime. Some colleges tell me I can do both, have a package at running back. But it may be the other way around. You won?t never know until you get to school and find out I?m not as good as I thought I was going to be at this. I know I?m a good running back. I feel like at that position (linebacker) I?m kind of flexible because I?m big enough to play inside but I?m fast enough to get around the edge. It?s just kind of what their scheme is and how they want to handle it and then you go from there.?
Crouch is still in the heat of his recruiting process, and many sites have crystal balls pointing towards Clemson as his destination.
However, his recent words convey optimism for the Wolverine fan base. They are firmly in the running and are gaining traction at the right time.
The five-star’s visit, set for Nov. 3, will be pivotal in his final decision. Michigan fans should hope Crouch sees through the cold weather and focuses on the elite football Michigan has been playing.
