Jamarious Crusoe names favorites

Jamarious Crusoe, wide receiver from Midfield, Ala., has helped his team reach the quarter-finals of the state playoffs. Crusoe is attracting the interest of several schools and has collected a pair of scholarship offers. He talked about the team's big match-up this week and named favorites.

"We have a big game this week," said Jamarious Crusoe. "We play at home against Deshler. They are very talented. We have to come out and play hard. I am going to be matched up against an Alabama commitment [Deion Belue]. It will be a big challenge for me, but I am up for it."

Two schools have recognized this talented playmaker and extended scholarships.

"I have offers from UAB and Mississippi State," Crusoe said. "I received the offer from Mississippi State about two or three days ago. UAB offered about a month ago. I felt really good about the offers. I think a couple more schools will come though.

"Auburn, Tennessee and Ole Miss are recruiting me pretty hard right now. I have been to plenty of college games this year. I have been to Ole Miss twice, Mississippi State twice and to Auburn.

"I really like Auburn as my favorite school, but I would choose Mississippi State of the schools who have offered me right now."

Crusoe talked about his interest in the in-state SEC school.

"I like Auburn a lot," he said. "I like their tradition. I always knew about them growing up. My whole family are Auburn fans. It would be a dream come true if I went to play for them."

Crusoe traveled to Starkville last weekend when the Bulldogs hosted Alabama.

"The visit to Mississippi State was nice," he said. "I talked to the head coach Dan Mullen and coach Knox. They were telling me how interested they were in me. They were asking me if I was going to come there and stuff like that.

"Mississippi State has a nice school. I think they run the ball a little bit too much though. I have attended a few games, and all they seem to do is run the ball. I have watched them on television, and they have thrown the ball a little bit more. I would like to see them put it in the air more."

The 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect has reeled in 40 receptions for more than 800 yards and nine touchdowns.

"I use my height to my advantage and my speed," Crusoe said. "I want to be consistent at going full speed. I go full speed, but not all the time. Right now I run a 4.43-40."
