Quavaris Crouch – LB – Tennessee: Crouch was listed as a 6’2″, 235 lb. linebacker for Tennessee in 2020 after coming in at 6’1″, 246 lbs. (too heavy) as a freshman in 2019. As a second-year player, he made 57 tackles and 2 tackles for loss. His final three out of high school included Clemson and Michigan. Originally from North Carolina, the Wolverines and Tarheels are being considered. Crouch was a 4-star, the #3 athlete, and #61 overall in 2019. Here’s a blast from the past, what I wrote about Crouch when he committed to the Vols (LINK):
Crouch somewhat inexplicably picked the Tennessee Volunteers. With a top three including Clemson, Michigan, and Tennessee, most people thought he would pick Clemson. Except he then supposedly eliminated them in the last week or two, taking a final-weekend visit to Tennessee. Michigan seemed to be running #3, but Tennessee . . . I mean . . . Tennessee?

OFF THE BOARD
Jonathan Allen – OT – Dayton (OH) Dunbar: Allen committed to Cincinnati.
Khris Bogle – DE – Fort Lauderdale (FL) Cardinal Gibbons: Bogle flipped from Alabama to Florida in a somewhat surprising move after committing to Alabama at the All-American Bowl. He’s the #71 overall player in the class.
Jerrion Ealy – RB – Flowood (MS) Jackson Prep: Flowood, a former Mississippi State commit, was expected to go to Clemson but ended up signing with Ole Miss. He was a 5-star and the lone standout running back at the Under Armour All-American Game.
Isaiah Foskey – DE – Concord (CA) De La Salle: Foskey committed to Notre Dame as a defensive end. Michigan had been looking at him as a tight end. Foskey is a former teammate of one-time Michigan tight end Devin Asiasi, who is now at UCLA.
Demarcus Griffin – CB – Charlotte (NC) Olympic: Griffin committed to Utah State.
Daequan Hardy – CB – Pittsburgh (PA) Penn Hills: Hardy signed with Penn State.
