FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – By Otis Kirk
Offensive linesman Ty & # 39; kieast Crawford of Carthage, Texas is one of the top goals in Arkansas in the 2020 class.
Crawford, 6-6, 315, is a recruit of four stars. How was your official visit?
"It was pretty good," said Crawford.
Who was your player?
"Silas (Robinson)," Crawford said. "It was pretty good, I hung around with Gabe (Richardson)."
Did Richardson give you these glasses?
"I got it back in Carthage, I think the Longview Mall," Crawford said.
When do you make a public announcement for your engagement?
"After the football season," Crawford said. "That was the whole question that was in the minds all weekend."
Why are you waiting for an announcement until after the football season?
"I just want to surprise people," Crawford said. "It'll be a surprise if I do it."
They were here for Prospect Days on January 26 and March 9, but what has cemented Arkansas' position this weekend?
"It's a lot, I can not lie to you," Crawford said. "There is much to remember."
They were in Alabama last weekend. What did you say?
"It was alright, but for me it's not the hype everybody's talked about," Crawford said. "I expected that, but it really was not."
You spent a lot of time with the coaches this weekend. How did that work?
"It was really fun," Crawford said. "You get to know them a lot better than you do, I need to talk to them a little bit more."
What's your relationship with Dustin Fry?
"It's great," Crawford said. "He wants me to hurry and commit myself and come here."
It's the series week, have you gone to concerts?
"I did not really have a chance," Crawford said. "We only went to parties, sometimes hanging out in the dormitories."
You said Arkansas was at the top of your list in the past. Is it still like that?
"They are at the top," said Crawford. "You are number one."
Who is still there?
"(Texas) A & M, LSU, Ole Miss and Baylor," Crawford said.
Do you have more visits in the series?
"I'm going to A & M next weekend," Crawford said. "I'm leaving all my officials behind until next year, this is the only official I take here (spring)."
