Crowell's a sophomore to know

Meridian High School in Mississippi produces talent. Scout 100 safety C.J. Hampton signed with Ole Miss in 2014, quarterback J'Mar Smith is their top junior, and Daniel Crowell is a wide receiver to know in the 2016 class...

Daniel Crowell had over 150 yards receiving and he scored two touchdowns Thursday night against West Point in a scrimmage game.

Mississippi State is the only school showing interest in Crowell right now, but that is expected to change soon.

The 6-foot-1, 191 pound sophomore is strong and he has good speed down the field. He is thought of as one of the best athletes in the area.

There are a few schools he likes early.

"LSU, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, and probably Georgia are schools I am really interested in," said Crowell. "I am planning to go to camps at Alabama, Georgia, and Ole Miss this summer."

The 2016 wide receiver out of Meridian, Miss. grew up a fan of the Texas Longhorns. He has no ties to the school, but he has followed many of their top players.

"I have always liked Texas. I have watched them a lot and I have grown up watching guys like Ricky Williams, Colt McCoy, and Vince Young. They have had some great players."

Not many know much about Crowell yet, but those close to Meridian expect his first offer to come this summer, then many others to follow. Scout was at his school earlier this week and he is an impressive young man.
