On Wednesday the 17th I had the chance to head over to...
Summer Rewind: Bryant Crawford
I have been following ESPN Top 100 point guard Bryant Crawford very closely this summer. I have had the chance to watch him at the Nike EYBL Session 2 in Dallas and the Lebron James Skills Academy in Las Vegas; I even watched courtside as he scored 29 points in a head to head matchup against Arizona commit Allonzo Trier. Crawford recently trimmed his list of colleges to seven. The list consists of Tennessee, SMU, Georgetown, Memphis, Indiana, Wake Forest and Marquette. Today I gave him a call and asked him about his summer, his selection to the Under Armour Elite 24 game and upcoming visits.
HWI: What was the best experience from the summer?
Crawford: I’d probably say Peach Jam.
HWI: Why do you say that?
Crawford: I feel like we played well as team.
HWI: You have the Elite 24 coming up this weekend. Tell me about how it feels to be picked for that and how exciting it is to be playing in that?
Crawford: It’s definitely an honor that not too many people get to experience. I’ve been working out every day, getting in shape and preparing to have fun.
HWI: What kind of stuff have you been working on?
Crawford: Conditioning and jump shot…A lot of conditioning.
HWI: Are you getting in the dunk contest or the three-point contest on Friday?
Crawford: I might do three-point but I’m not sure yet.
HWI: Lastly, I know you cut your list down to seven are you about to make any visits anywhere?
Crawford: I’m going on an official to SMU on the 28th [of August]. I’m going on one to Wake Forest but I’m not sure of the date right now.
As Crawford and I discussed, you can catch him in action next at the Under Armour Elite 24 on Saturday, August 23rd at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn, New York. The game will be televised live on ESPNU at 7:00 pm. The three-point shootout and dunk contest will take place on Friday, August 22nd at 7:00 pm and will stream live on ESPN3.
