Crownover is a 6-foot-6, 235-pound tight end and defensive end who has a priority target for several programs on the recruiting front. He received over two dozen offers during the recruiting process.
From 247Sports’ Gabe Brooks:
Possesses elite height and frame length with space to continue adding good bulk. Tall, long, two-way prospect at tight end and defensive end. Started both ways for Texas 3A D-I state champion as a sophomore. Two-sport standout in football and basketball. Potential to play tight end or strong-side defensive end. Far more tape on defense than offense so far, but basketball skill suggests high ceiling at tight end. Wins with size and natural athleticism.
Crownover is a two-sport athlete at the high school level, playing both football and basketball.
Ohio State already owns the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class currently. Adding Crownover to the class would widen the gap between the Buckeyes and others in the 2021 recruiting cycle. Nebraska ranks 41st nationally and 10th in the B1G.
