Memphis Receives Commitment From Markel Crawford
Markel Crawford verbally committed to Memphis on Wednesday.
"Basically I was just praying, and God told me what to do when I woke up this morning," said Crawford, who was also considering Auburn, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Florida State and Marquette, among others.
"(Assistant Damon Stoudamire) had a whole lot (to do with the commitment). He showed great support and he was on me the whole time."
Crawford, a 6-foot-5, 190-pound guard, averaged 17 points for Memphis Melrose High School last season.
