Quavaris Crouch ‘taking his time, considering which side of the ball he is more interested in on the next level’

Quavaris Crouch is one of the nation’s top prospects in the 2019 class.

The 6-foot-2, 238-pound prospect from Harding University High School in Charlotte, N.C., has made recent summer visits to Tennessee and Michigan.

Harding University High School head coach Robert Cross told Vols Wire that “a lot of schools are recruiting Crouch right now.”

In high school, Crouch plays running back, defensive end and linebacker.

Cross says it “will be completely up to whatever school he signs with” of what side of the ball Crouch will be on in college.

“Quavaris understands right now what his future is projected to be and where he fits certain schemes within certain programs and specific schools,” Cross said. “He is open, but he is definitely taking his time and really considering which side of the ball he is more interested in on the next level.”

As the upcoming season approaches for Crouch, Cross says “we’re pretty much rehabilitating him right now with his hip and giving him split reps offensively and defensively and just seeing where his best fit is for 2018.”

Crouch’s attributes include being big and physical, on top of being a leader.

“He is a vocal guy and he will lead by example and can get the guys to rally around him with his play and builds that team morale,” Cross said. “His future is definitely bright and understands the load that is on his shoulders.

“He’s one of the biggest supporters of our guys this year. He is as good off of the field as he is on it. He is definitely that leader.”

As summer wraps up and Crouch’s commitment nears, there is not a specific date set, but his decision could come mid-to-late season and will enroll early at the school he chooses.

“I believe he wants to have a school named by October or November, but that is completely up to him and his family,” Cross said. “He will be a January guy, so he will go through spring ball wherever he commits to.

“That is good for him to get a jump on it academically, offseason conditioning and also go through spring ball. He is definitely excited about it as he figures out his best fit.”
