Florida cornerback lining up SEC visits

Monticello (Jefferson County), Fla., cornerback/wide receiver David Crumitie has gone through the bulk of the recruiting process in relative anonymity.

However, as National Signing Day approaches rapidly, interest in the 5-foot-10, 170-pound versatile speedster is increasing at a similar rate.

Crumitie, who was selected to play in Florida's North-South All-Star Game and in the Georgia-Florida All-Star Game held Saturday at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, has attracted late interest from Ole Miss, Kentucky and Florida in addition to an offer from South Alabama.

Crumitie said Friday he'll visit Kentucky on Jan. 22 and follow that trip with an official visit to Ole Miss on Jan. 29. The Rebels, Crumitie said, are recruiting him as a cornerback.

"(Ole Miss recruiting coordinator/cornerbacks) Coach (Chris) Vaughn is a great guy to talk to," Crumitie said. "He said he needs defensive backs right away. If I can, I want to get the job done wherever they can use me.

"I'm a corner who likes to play man defense the whole game really."

Crumitie has been consistently clocked at 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He recorded 29 tackles and six interceptions - including three returned for touchdowns - during his senior season. He also added 51 receptions for 1,024 yards and 13 touchdowns on offense.

Crumitie said Ole Miss and South Alabama are his current favorites, adding that he won't know where he stands with the Rebels until his official visit in Oxford.

Crumitie scored a 14 on his first attempt at the ACT. He recently took the SAT and is awaiting his score. He is scheduled to re-take the ACT on Feb. 6.
