2022 – WR – Decoldest Crawford – Green Oaks, LA – 6’1 / 178

247 Rank:  National - 380 / WR - 55 / LA – 15

Commitment – Louisiana State University

Name/Location/Date/Time of film for evaluation – Decoldest Crawford Sophomore Season – Hudl – 11/30/19 – 3m 37sec

Physical Attributes – Decoldest is a tall, long levered, twitchy athlete.  He shows excellent play speed, running with a forward lean but with his 11.48 verified 100 is not elite with his long speed.  Looks faster on film.  He is wirey with short area quickness and excellent balance and body control and short area quickness.  Can be explosive with the ball in his hands.  A natural catcher who catches the ball in front of his frame.  In due time he will mature physically which will highlight his strong areas and bring along his strength and speed to be an outside WR in the SEC. 

Position Specific Skills – I am very impressed with Decoldest WR skills.  He shows quick feet to get off bump coverage with burst and acceleration.  He can drop weight and stick foot in the ground to create separation in his route.   He is a very fluid runner that can change direction with some make you miss ability after the catch.  He does show excellent play speed  but I question his pure long speed.  He can adjust to the ball in the air and is a natural catcher of the ball.  Would like to see more toughness and blocking      

Overall – Decoldest has a high ceiling if he puts in the work.  He is very twitchy and quick for his height and length.  He can be a one on one nightmare for smaller defenders.  He has a great get off and can separate with his refined route running ability.  He also has great spatial awareness, body control and instinctiveness.  He uses his length to be a red zone/deep threat.  A solid play maker that must  work on long speed and get in the weight room to reach his true potential.  If he does, he will be a top WR in the SEC in a few years.
