Jametrius Crockham had a big smile on his face while running routes and training with several Indianapolis area prospects at All Pro Sports on Tuesday.
He is enjoying being back on the field after missing his junior season with a knee injury. Schools have stopped in to see how he's doing and he's ready to show them the talents that allowed him to burst onto the scene as a freshman and sophomore.
"Missouri has, Northwestern, and I know Louisville has too. I've just been doing rehab, getting out and running again. It's feeling good being out there running again, doing things I want to do. It was kind of depressing sitting out the year."
College coaches have all essentially told Crockham the same thing.
"They want to see how my knee is, but I know I'll be ready to prove it to them."
A high school tailback, Crockham says he will still play there this year but is being recruited mostly at wide receiver. He says his rehab has been getting him back on track to show he can make that transition this summer.
"Rehab's been great. I thought I would be slow with it but I've been progressing well with stretching, running, weight lifting, and putting on weight. I lost a lot of weight but I'm putting on muscle and getting my weight back."
With the injury in his rear view mirror, Crockham now moves into camp season, an important time for him.
"I'm thinking about trying to go out to NC State because they've been trying to get me to come out there. Indiana and Purdue, they want me to come up too. Purdue wants me to come up because my brother played there and they want to see how I do."
