can't keep up with all of his offers, and sometimes has to visit all of the scouting websites in order to keep up with all of the interest he is receiving.

The 2014 prospect, a 6-2, 200-pounder has offers from all of the major programs in the southeast and offers from schools as far away as Arizona St. and as far north as Ohio St.

“It has been crazy getting all of the offers,” he told TigerNet this week. “Sometimes I go out to a website, and then I see my face. I am just taking it all in stride and going with it.”

Crosby has been on Clemson’s radar for a while, and he used a recent Junior Day visit to meet with new defensive coordinator Brent Venables.

“I talked to Coach Venables for the first time, and it was good to get to meet him,” Crosby said. “I got to touch base with him. From the little time I spent with him, he seems like an electric guy, the kind of guy who is going to get after it. I think he is going to be exciting for Clemson.”

Crosby still has two years of high school football remaining, and he said his focus at this point is not on recruiting but in making himself a better player.

“I am going to work a lot harder, and just focus a lot on my defense this year,” he said. “I want to get in better shape to play both ways. I played both ways last season, but I wasn’t in the best shape for that, so that is what I am working on. I am staying after it, and working on getting to the ball on defense.”

As a sophomore, Crosby recorded 36 catches for 676 yards and nine touchdowns on offense, and had 58 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions on defense.

He said that despite all of the offers, he does have a select few he hears from more than others.

“I am interested in everybody that I have offers from,” he said. “But I really have interest in Clemson, Alabama, North Carolina, Virginia Tech and South Carolina. I think I am going to wait until that summer before my senior season to make my decision.”

Crosby finished the interview by saying he wasn’t taking anything for granted, because at Bamberg there is always somebody waiting to take your spot.

“At Bamberg, we don’t rebuild, we reload,” he said. “There is no drop here. Once you get to high school, you have to work to be the best. There is no settling, and there is no waiting til next year. When you get here in ninth grade, you should be ready to go get after it on the varsity. That is why players from Bamberg excel in college – when they get here in ninth grade they are ready to play. You have to have that mindset.”
