The National Junior College Offensive Player of the Year is coming to Morgantown. Running back Justin Crawford signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Mountaineers today, and will have
Crawford, a Columbus, GA native, played for Northwest Mississippi C.C. racking up over 4,000 all-purpose yards and 36 total touchdowns in his time as a Ranger. During the 2015 season, Crawford lead the NJCAA with 1,610 yards rushing and 16 touchdowns on 248 carries. He also added 394 yards and 6 touchdowns on 29 receptions. Crawford helped bring the Rangers to the 2015 NJCAA National Championship game where he had 190 all-purpose yards and 2 touchdowns as the Rangers dominate the Rochester Yellowjacks 66-13.
Crawford should be able to make an immediate impact for the Mountaineers, giving them another big running back that can also catch passes out of the backfield. Crawford has the skill to lineup as a wide receiver in certain packages, and give West Virginia another potential playmaker in the passing game.
Crawford chose West Virginia over Georgia and South Carolina, and held offers from Missouri and Louisville. Crawford has three years to play two.
