Crosby To Enroll in Summer School
As a freshman Crosby had 27 receptions for 465 yards and four touchdowns in 2001.
CLEMSON – Roscoe Crosby has taken the first step on the road back to the Clemson football team.
The former Clemson wide receiver met with Joe White, Clemson academic advisor for the football team on Wednesday and will enroll in a three-hour class within his major that begins June 9.
Less than two months ago, Crosby decided to leave Clemson and play professional baseball for the Kansas City Royals organization full time.
A report last Friday in Baseball America said Crosby has quit baseball and would enroll in summer school at Clemson. But Freda Crosby, Crosby’s mother, told the State earlier this week that Crosby has not given up baseball, but she doesn’t know if he will play football again.
As a freshman Crosby had 27 receptions for 465 yards and four touchdowns in 2001. He set a Clemson record for receptions and reception yards in a season by a first-year freshman. His 139 receiving yards in a victory over Duke on December 1, 2001 remain a Clemson record for a freshman. He also caught a scoring pass in Clemson's Humanitarian Bowl victory.
Crosby could be eligible to play football again in 2004. He currently needs 24 hours to regain eligibility.
