Monroe's Crowder is offered by Tar Heels

As Heels fans savor the last-minute switch of DE Brandon Willis from Tennessee to North Carolina, more interesting news has popped up.

Jamison Crowder, a member of the Class of 2011 and a speedy 5-foot-9, 160-pound wide receiver/free safety/kick returner at Monroe High, recently received an offer from North Carolina, according to Monroe coach Johnny Sowell.

"We took a few guys over to see the Tar Heels practice at Charlotte Latin when Carolina was here for the (Mieneke) Bowl game," Sowell said. "We gave them a DVD of Jamison, and they really like the fact that he's so versatile, can do so many things."

Sowell expects that a number of other schools, including many from the ACC, will follow suit.

Crowder has 4.5-second speed in the 40-yard dash.

He was also offered by Duke in late December. He returned seven kicks for TDs as a junior, including five punts. As a receiver, he had 630 receiving yards and 13 scores.

And he had 35 tackles at FS.

Crowder is also an outstanding prep basketball player.

Steve Smith isn't anywhere near normal. Don't kid yourself.

5-9 DB is even small. Not sure where this guy fits our title contending team model.

Come on Crowder. You will look great in Carolina blue! Then we'll support you in the NFL. I hear that you are a great kid. Can't wait to see you in Chapel Hill.

But Steve Smith has the best right hook in the business.

Stan, we know you're a tarhole but come on man, can we get updates on other schools? Wake, Duke, NC State, South Carolina etc all have recruiting going on. I guess the paper only lets you get one subscription and that's to insidecarolina. I get it.

Guys, the Willis thing has been a huge deal, which is why I've done so much on it.

Anything I find out about ANY of our 7 major schools (Plus some I-AAs like App, Citadel, Western, etc.), I consider bloggable.

But don't complain about Willis coverage. Rivals ranks him 41st overall in the nation...
