MotSaG Chat with Shaun Crawford


In 2015 the state of Ohio has a ton of top tier talent. The recruiting sites top lists are littered with kids from Ohio more so than any year in recent memory. That top talent though may be having a real issue. You see both Ohio State and Michigan will have tiny classes and those are the traditional takers of the top tier players in Ohio. How tiny you ask? OSu will be coming off of punishments so at least they will have 3 extra scholarships to bring their class size to around 19. Michigan isnt so lucky right now their class size is at 12 yes you heard that right 12. So if you get an offer from TTUN you know you are a special player in 2015 because of limited numbers. Shaun Crawford is such a guy a lifelong TTUN fan with parents whose love is equal for the school. He is one of the best in Ohio and the entire country. It would be difficult at best to get him to OSU but he hasn’t shut the doors on that premise and now the ball is in the coaches court if you will. Here what he had to say recently in our chat with him…

SYR- If you could please tell us about your home life… Parents, brothers and/or sisters, where you were born, Have you always lived in in the same place?

Shuan- I have a great home life. Live at home with both parents and an older brother. I was born in Cleveland, Ohio. Pretty much raised and currently living in Twinsburg, Ohio.

SYR- Can you give us your current stats such as height, weight, 40 yard time, GPA, and your personal game stats from last year?

Shaun- 5’9, 173, 4.34, and 3.6

SYR- Tell us a little bit about your HS FB team such as record and offensive style and defensive style.

Shaun- My high school team was ranked top 3 in the country last year until knocked out in the playoffs. We run a spread on offense and we like to mix it up a lot on defense like the college level.

SYR- What are your goals for the upcoming season?

Shaun- Only goals I have for myself is to improve on last year whether it be stats, attitude, instincts, or being a great teammate. My main goal is a team goal, winning Sate.

SYR- What college football team did you grow up being a fan of and why?

Shaun- Michigan and The U. The great tradition and the amount of nfl players they produce.

SYR- Most “recruiting experts” seem to think you are a Michigan lock, do you agree with that?

Shaun- Michigan has always been a top school for me and it’s a very comfortable fit, but I’m no ones lock.

SYR- You are one of the top players in the state of Ohio have you had much contact with the OSU staff? Do you think you are close to getting an offer from Ohio State?

Shaun- Yes I’ve came in contact with OSU. No, haven’t spoke along the lines of an offer with an OSU staff member.

SYR- Who would you say is your personal hero and why?

Shaun- My dad. He does everything for me and always puts his family before himself.

SYR- If you were going to die tomorrow what would your final meal be?

Shaun- Lobster tail and crab legs

SYR- Who do you think you compare to most in the NFL or College right now?

Shaun- Tyrann Mathieu

SYR- Who is your favorite College player of all time? And favorite NFL player of all time if different from College?

Shaun- Favorite College Player: SeanTaylor. Favorite NFL Player: Deion Sanders

SYR- I know the recruiting process is early for you and I am sure it is tough for you to come up with a top 5 schools list but could you maybe list the top 5 schools you would like to get an offer from and why? or what are your top 5 schools if you already know?

Shaun- Top 5 schools looking to get an offer from are Georgia, Florida, USC, Oregon, and OSU. I have a top 5 but I’m not sure because I haven’t visited all of them.

SYR- Do you have a timetable for when you would like to commit? If yes, when?

Shaun- Soon after my Junior season.

SYR- What would you prefer to play in college WR or CB or both?

Shaun- I would prefer to play CB but if the opportunity of playing WR along with CB presents itself then I will take full advantage.

SYR- What would you like Buckeye Nation to know about you that they most likely don’t already know?

Shaun- Buckeye nation should know that I’m Ohio Grown, considered one of the best in the state at my position and i will work everyday because im never satisfies. Also I have the speed Urban is looking for. 10.5 in the 100m as a sophomore

Shaun Crawford is a 5’9″ 173 lbs 4 star CB/WR from Lakewood, Ohio. Shaun is a pure athlete and the kind that Urban covets. He has speed and a knack for the ball. He needs to bulk up for sure but could very well be the next Charles Woodson for TTUN. Time is running out for OSU to even get in the game for him as he wants to commit in a few months. I am not even sure he would listen if they did offer but his talent is too great to not take a shot at getting. 247sports ranks him a 4 star and the 7th best prospect in Ohio and 156th best recruit in the country. ESPN ranks him a 4 star and the 4th best prospect in Ohio and the 49th best prospect in the country.

  1. I wouldn’t be shocked to see him commit to TTUN this weekend at their BBQ…. he told me he had no interest in attending FNL so zero chance OSU will offer him.


  1. […] also spoke with Shaun Crawford, Class of 2015 WR/CB and a heavy Michigan lean. Can the Buckeyes convince this lifelong Wolverine […]
