Ohio CB decommits from Minnesota, reopens recruitment
Minnesota’s 2021 recruiting class has taken another hit.
The Golden Gophers lost a pledge from three-star cornerback Tamarion Crumpley, a native of Cincinnati, Ohio. He made his announcement with a post on social media Tuesday evening.
“I want to thank all the coaches and the Minnesota community for the love they have showed me,” Crumpley wrote on Twitter. “With that being said I’m announcing that I will be de-committing from the University of Minnesota and my recruitment is 100 percent open.”
Crumpley is ranked as one of the top 100 cornerbacks in the 2021 recruiting class. The 6-foot, 175-pound defensive back is also one of the top 50 prospects out of the state of Ohio.
Several schools have shown an interest in Crumpley on the recruiting front, as he’s received 16 offers. In addition to Minnesota, Crumpley has received offers from Maryland, Boston College, Pitt, Kentucky, Michigan State, Kansas and Wake Forest at the Power Five level.
Minnesota is now down to 15 members in the 2021 recruiting class. The Gophers rank 16th nationally and sixth in the B1G. Crumpley is the fourth commit to reopen his recruitment during the cycle.
