2021 WR has “great’ camp at OSU
Ryan Day, Brian Hartline, and the rest of staff at Ohio State have been working their tails off playing host to a long list of talented high school prospects so far this camp season.
Dishing out many offers along the way, class of 2021 wide receiver Dekel Crowdus was just one of the recruits who caught the attention of the Buckeye coaches with his skills in person during camp last weekend.
“It was great at Ohio State. I had an amazing camp that day,” Crowdus, a 5-foot-10, 165-pound speedster from Lexington, Kentucky, told Land-Grant Holy Land.
“(I learned) To get my head around when I break out of my routes and to run my routes at a 4.36 speed,” the Frederick Douglass junior added on what tips he learned during his time with the OSU staff.
Arriving in Columbus with offers on the table from programs such as Kentucky, Penn State, and the University of Tennessee, Crowdus left the 614 with a chance to rock the Scarlet and Gray on the college level.

“Coach Hartline offered me,” Dekel said. “They (OSU coaches) loved my performance. They loved my 40 yard dash and loved how I was making plays during 1-on-1’s.”
When it comes to rankings, Crowdus should watch his name climb up the rankings in the coming weeks. A three-star prospect at the moment, he’s currently pegged as the 49th wide receiver, and 317th overall prospect in the entire class of 2021, according to 247Sports.
