A look back

Derrick Crudup

With recruiting still fresh in our minds I wanted to take a look back to see what some current players had to say during their recruitment before they chose UM. I think you'll find their comments interesting.

12/28/99: "I have three offers right now," Miami (Fla.) Northwestern standout tight end David Williams said. "I go to UM on the 21st, Central Florida on the 7th, and South Florida on the 14th. I'll probably end up at Miami but I'll check out those other ones too." -- he claimed to be 6-2 1/2 and 220 at the time (now around 245).

12/19/99: "Right now, it's between Miami, LSU, and Georgia," Deerfield Beach, Fla. quarterback Derrick Crudup said. "All three of them have offered a scholarship. I've been to Auburn, West Virginia, and Georgia (on visits) and I go to LSU on the 14th and Miami on the 21st." -- he claimed to be 6-2, 195 at the time (now 215).

12/21/99: "Right now, I'm favoring Miami over North Carolina, Auburn, West Virginia, and Michigan," Miami (Fla.) Palmetto offensive lineman Chris Myers said. "I always thought Miami was a good fit for me. I think it's the best situation but I might take other visits just to make sure." -- he claimed to be 6-5 and 250 at the time (now 285).
