Former Miami defensive back Antonio Crawford, who left the Hurricanes program in February, announced today that he will transfer to WVU. Crawford had grown tired of unspecified things at Miami and felt a new start was the best move for him.
Crawford, 5’11 200 lbs., had played in every game since arriving at Miami as part of the 2012 class. This past season saw Crawford record 58 tackles, 1 interception, and 8 pass deflections. Crawford was considered to be in line to be a starting cornerback for the Hurricanes this season after playing nickel last season.
Coming from H.B. Plant High School (FL) Crawford was rated as a 3 star CB and held offers from Ball State, Bowling Green, Florida International, Georgia Tech, Iowa State, Miami, and Ohio. Crawford’s size and 4.4 40 speed separate him from most defensive backs and could be an instant asset for WVU.
Crawford is set to graduate this semester from Miami and if that stays on course will be a graduate transfer and eligible to play this season for the Mountaineers.
