Even though only a few offers have been extended for 2012, Tech is on the mind of quite a few other rising juniors. One of those is an out-of-state prospect, what does he think about the Hokies?

"I like Virginia Tech's program," Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson 2012 cornerback Kenneth Crawley said. "They are probably the college I plan on going to since it's close.

"I know when I'd be there, Boye (2011 Virginia Tech commit Adeboye Aromire) would be there too, that would be good."

Crawley's contact with the Hokies has been limited during the quiet period, but he has been in contact with his recruiter from Tech a bit.

"I like Coach Sherman, he's a nice guy. I've called him and he's told me about Tech and how he's going to try to get me down there."

To date Crawley hasn't visited Blacksburg, but hopes to soon.

Meanwhile, other schools are eyeing Crawley as well.

"Maryland, Cincinnati, West Virginia, New Mexico and Duke are some of the schools looking at me."

With recruiting just starting to pick up, what does Crawley want in a college?

"I just want an education," he said. "I'm trying to go to a school where they see me for who I am and give me an opportunity to get out there and do my part on the field, do my thing."

After sharing time last year at corner, Crawley is looking to truly breakout this season.

"I got time last year, but I want to prove that I could have been that guy. I want to have a big junior year," he stated. "I've seen a lot of improvement. I was doing the littlest mistakes and I'm working on those to get better and make my game better."

In his first start this past Friday, Crawley posted one interception and six tackles in H.D. Woodson's opener against GlenOak.
